2016 Summary

2016 has brought ENL much success. We competed for, and won, many Aerospace, Automotive and Marine projects. Our high-quality products manufactured and delivered on time speak for themselves and the company managed to increase its list of partners and customers.

ENL looks after its customers’ needs first. After an increase in our customer base we took a step forward and increased our moulding capability by installing a new 1100 Tonne Engel Duo injection moulding press. This provides us with a significant new capability and our customers have been quick to take advantage of it.

As we continued through the year we happened to have another pleasant surprise. An ENL apprentice was nominated for an award by the Plastics Industry Awards 2016. Only a few people across the UK & Ireland were chosen in each category and invited to this glamorous ceremony in London. We congratulated Adam Harden for his nomination and for being an outstanding Apprentice Toolmaker

As we are getting closer to the end of 2016, ENL has invested in another upgrade in machining capacity. Our new XYZ 710 VMC is already in place, installed and ready for work with its amazing 4000 kg solid casting 8000 RPM spindle and perfect positional accuracy (+/- 5 microns). Coupled with our machining capabilities there is “No job too big or too small for us”. It is a modern, well -designed and efficient machine. Programmed by some of the most skilled people in the whole company it makes a perfect way to achieve the best results in a short lead-time.
