Highlighting its continued growth and focus on the future, bearing manufacturer Braintree Precision Components (BPC) is set to expand its manufacturing capability with the acquisition of new premises.
The new premises, located next door to its main factory in Braintree, Essex, will increase its machining capacity by 30%. The expansion of facilities follows a record year of bearing manufacture for the company, and is supported by a significant level of investment in new equipment. Part of the Hepco Group, BPC manufactures V bearings for linear motion expert HepcoMotion.
Barry Engstrom, Hepco Group manufacturing director comments: “With the growth of electric vehicles, and many other industries automating their facilities across the world, we see significant opportunities for growth in the coming years. Quite simply, we’ve outgrown our existing premises and this expansion is an exciting new development for us.”
The new premises will provide a further 690m2 of production space with state-of-the art turning and grinding machines, as well as additional office space. The additional facilities are a significant investment for the company and will accommodate future demands in line with BPC’s continued growth. The site is set to be operational from the end of 2022 and will create a significant number of jobs in Essex.
