Angus 3D Solutions Limited, an Additive Manufacturing company based in Brechin, Angus, Scotland, reports that it is investing over £165,000 as part of a new growth plan for the company. The investment will facilitate new equipment, larger premises and additional staff.
Following the move to larger premises at the town’s Montrose Road Industrial Estate, manufacturing space will increase by 250%. The new facility is also expected to see a £100,000 investment in new equipment and improvements for the company’s manufacturing processes.
The first new employee, Ritchie Webster, has joined the company as part of a four-year Modern Apprenticeship in Additive & Subtractive Manufacturing at Dundee & Angus College, An additional staff member is planned to join the company in autumn 2022, following completion of the move to the new facility.
“I’m delighted to be able to create local jobs as part of my new growth plan, which aims to take our turnover past £400,000 by the end of 2023,” commented Andy Simpson, Managing Director of Angus 3D. “Aside from passing on the crucial career start I once received myself, having Ritchie doing his Modern Apprenticeship while working with us will allow us to develop our capabilities further through him – specifically additional cutting-edge skills in Additive Manufacturing (3D printing).”
He added, “While we’re grateful for the excellent support we’ve had from Angus Council over the years, the larger premises at Montrose Road Industrial Estate are better suited to our current and future needs and will enable us to increase production capacity to realise our forecast growth.”
