An investment of £400,000 in new machinery has been made by Mildenhall based Multifab.

The fabricator of facade and aluminum windows says the new Emmegi Quadra L1 CNC milling, drilling and cutting machining centre, will increase its production capacity and speed of delivery.

Production manager Peter Dalby said: “This £400,000 machine is a significant investment for the group and represents our ongoing commitment to quality and value for the components we supply to our customer base.

“It will make our production more efficient and reduce lead times and component costs to customers, which is where our main focus lies.”

Multifab is the fabrication arm of EAG (English Architectural Glazing).

Edward Whipp, EAG’s pre-construction director, said: “In a time when the UK facade industry has taken a real bashing with many players going out of business, it is exactly the right time for the group to be making this major investment.

“As in the rest of the economy, we are seeing activity pick up and the increased quality and capacity of this new machining centre will position us perfectly to take advantage of these increased opportunities.

“The new Quadra will accelerate in-house production and benefit our client service.”
