EMS expands its UK manufacturing facility to support growth

EMS expands its UK manufacturing facility to support growth
EMS, the miniature drives specialist, is once again expanding its UK manufacturing facility based in Poole, Dorset. EMS began manufacturing in 1991, and has continued to develop and evolve the manufacturing arm of its business. To support further growth, plans are already in place to extend the current facility by a further 20% making the factory some 2000m2. 

Having purchased a small engineering firm back in 1991 with just 200m2 of floor space and a handful of people it was hard to imagine the real growth potential. Martin Seedall, manufacturing Director picks up the story: "At that time we were making remote handling equipment for the nuclear industry, and were only just turning our thoughts to design ideas for a range of gearboxes to manufacture that would complement our range of DC motors." In the period that followed the remote handling business was expanded and alongside this the concept of a new 38mm diameter 2Nm spur gearbox was conceived.

The early spur gearbox designs were aimed at applications in instrumentation and medical devices, but the technology was soon applied to more customer specific designs across a range of industries. During the 1990s sales of these gearboxes grew, but to this day the SG38 gearbox remains the only standard product in the range. Instead EMS has evolved into a specialist company providing a unique blend of design, development and in-house manufacturing capability, committed to delivering bespoke drive solutions for a diverse range of industries.

All of EMS's resources are dedicated to design, development and ultimately the manufacture of bespoke solutions. This philosophy also applies to the design office where three Solid Works 3D CAD stations are utilised. And EMS continues to distribute an extensive range of precision Miniature DC motors, stepper motors and linear actuators from some of the world's leading manufacturers such as Faulhaber and SKF.

Accredited to ISO9001:2000 and with successful applications in the medical, healthcare, aerospace and defence industries EMS is a British manufacturing success looking forward to the next chapter in its story.
