Precision engineering firm JJ Churchill has announced that it has increased six-fold the space for its Tool Room Division. The factory has a range of state-of-the-art and traditional equipment to design and produce from first principles some of the most complex fixtures in a new, purpose-built facility.
This initiative has freed up a lot of space which is now being devoted to the production of aerospace components, including the £70million contract with Rolls Royce announced at last year’s Farnborough Air Show.
JJ Churchill Design Engineer Matthew Smith said: “The most technically challenging problems in machining can be found in the design and production of fixtures for complex aerospace parts. And that’s what we do at JJ Churchill – we focus on ‘sticky niches’, problems where the first reaction is ‘that can’t be done’. But we do it day in day out, producing fixtures that enable the company to hit our manufacturing schedules. We are continuously ramping up to meet the needs of our growing business.”
