UK stainless steel manufacturer Pland Stainless – which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year – has purchased a new 4m Bystonic Fiber laser machine to improve productivity at its Leeds-based manufacturing facility.
The new acquisition marks a total of £500,000 spend on improvements to the facility by Pland Stainless. The high-speed laser cutting system “enables precision cutting of the stainless steel raw materials, improving both speed and accuracy of manufacture”, the company said.
“The purchase of this machine represents Pland’s commitment to investing in new technology to enhance our British factory,” said Pland Stainless managing director Steve Duree, pictured right alongside laser operator Glenn Sykes.
“Made in Britain is important to us and a growing number of our clients. This investment demonstrates our commitment to offering best in class products made right here in Yorkshire.”
