Latest News

Due to heavy work load and high demand for manufacture jobs DR has undergone expansion by employing a new workshop manager, hydraulic engineer and machinist. Along with these new employees DR has upgraded its machinery in the shape of a new Milling Machine and Lathe capable of machining cylinders up to 5m in length.

Company director Daniel Robson said “we’re delighted work continuously flows in and out of the doors particularly in these testing economic times, it truly is a testament to the service we provide”

 In order to continue with recent expansion and keep up with competitors, plans are already underway to invest in CNC machinery which will ensure tight deadlines are met with manufacture orders. This will also enhance turnaround time on breakdowns, as the manual machines won’t be tied up with manufacture jobs.

New: 3D software and skilled designers

To continue with the company’s expansion and progression in the current competitive market we have recently invested in the Solidworks 3D CAD software and employed a skilled design engineer for its operation.
