Vector has come a long way in the last 6 months

11th July 2019

We’ve set off to a storming start, with a significant rise in new orders meaning that we’ve grown the workforce and have taken on several highly talented new machinists as well as 2 apprentices who we’re looking forward to working with from September.  Their first 10 months will be spent at the inspiring AMRC Training Centre, before joining another 11 apprentices onsite across the X-Cel group.

We’ve invested over £500k in new plant and machinery and our capability is better than ever before, offering our valued customers increased capacity;

  • In May we installed 2x new Hwacheon CNC Horizontal turning centres with Fanuc controls, to meet rising demand
  • We’ve purchased an additional Binns & Berry 12m CNC lathe, again Fanuccontrolled which pairs up with an existing identical machine to increase capacity
  • A Ryazan Deep hole boring machine has been installed to add capacity in this specialised area, and we will imminently welcome a team of x6 Deep Hole Boring specialist machinists who will be integrated to the premises later this Summer

Also, we are delighted to welcome an experienced new sales manager who brings a vast amount of sector knowledge, along with an additional Quality Control inspector.

We aim to keep you updated with more news and investments as they happen.
