The 2008 recession now seemed to be lifting and the investments that had been made during the preceding years allowed Whiteley Brooks Engineering to take advantage of the upturn in orders. New teams were entering Formula 1 and required parts to get them to the grid on time and our existing customers became busier as optimism in the industry returned. The modernisation of the third factory unit was nearly complete and another two Bridgeport CNC mills, also with 5 axis capability, were purchased from Engineering Technology Group. Towards the end of 2013 it was decided to re-locate both the Material Stores and the Finish Parts Stores into an area at the rear of the new unit. Two more Doosan Lathes were purchased from Mills CNC to compliment the turning section.
