Following good news from Hydraforce, a press release about their latest investment has been forwarded by managing director, Kirsty Davies-Chinnock of Professional Polishing Services Ltd in Smethwick.
As the first UK free-issue polishing company to process wide sheet and plate via a 2000mm wide dull and satin polishing line, they are expanding this department with the purchase of a new double-headed line from Costa Levigatrici SpA in Italy, which will arrive and be commissioned during December 2015. The new line will polish plates up to 2000mm wide and 20mm thick, with a maximum piece weight of 2 tonne.
Alberto Burtini from Costa explains why their machine was the right choice for Professional Polishing Services:
“We were proud to demonstrate our build and engineering quality during their visit to our three factories in Italy. The machine is designed by the latest generation 3D Cad Cam technology and the software is uniquely developed by our engineers thus allowing us the control of every single machine function and create also tailor made solutions for special needs.”
Kirsty was impressed with the trials carried out in Italy:
“It’s an exciting period for PPS, this investment is a fantastic opportunity for us to grow to the next level and to cement our position as the UK’s market leader in stainless steel mechanical finishing.”
The investment itself is the largest ever made by Professional Polishing Services in its thirty two year history. This additional capital expansion builds on an ethos of dedicated growth and re-investment to secure success for the future.
A web search revealed that Kirsty has also been named as executive ambassador for TAG Network Midlands.
TAG is a networking association that celebrates and supports trainees, apprentices, interns and graduate level professionals across all industry sectors.
