Lancashire-based KBB supplier JJO has continued its programme of investment in manufacturing operations.
It has invested €1.6 million (£1.4m) in two new Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines from German precision panel furniture machine manufacturer IMA.
JJO said the investment will ensure its production remains efficient, accurate and of the highest possible quality.
The BIMA processing centre (pictured top), which costs €750,000, can create unusual-shaped panels, such as L-shaped and radius ends, and arrives in July 2018.
The IMA Combina, costing €855,000, mills, edges and grooves panels and is scheduled to arrive in May 2019.
This is in addition to a recent new extraction system and is part of an ongoing rolling investment programme, which is intended to ensure that JJO’s manufacturing facility remains “at the forefront of technology”.
