Equipmake, with support from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, through the Growing Business Fund, has completed the latest expansion of its Snetterton site, growing both its in-house
low-volume production expertise and headcount.
Thanks to the innovative grant, Equipmake has acquired a state-of-the-art Mazak CNC machine and received funding for the build of its test rig facility (along with the purchase of a key power supply unit), all of which has enabled the rapidly expanding electrification company to further fit out its Snetterton site and set up for initial production.
The funding from the New Anglia LEP also facilitated the creation of seven new full-time roles, all based at the Snetterton site.
Equipmake CEO, Ian Foley said: “On behalf of all at Equipmake we’d like to thank the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and the Growing Business Fund, for their foresight and support. This grant funding has played a key role in the continuing expansion of our low volume production expertise and the creation of local Norfolk jobs, as we work with multiple global organisations to provide state-of-the-art electrification solutions across a host of sectors, from automotive to aerospace.”
