Precision engineers accommodate growth with support from NatWest

A Norfolk based CNC milling and turning specialist plans to increase productivity and hit the £1 million turnover mark following a move to new premises.

Established in 1981, Breckland Precision Engineering operates across multiple sectors ‒ from pharmaceuticals to the food industry ‒ handling materials including stainless steel, plastics and brass. Ninety five per cent of its customers are UK based.

Looking to purchase premises as part of its growth strategy, Breckland Precision Engineering’s managing directors Nigel Hendry and Michael Regis approached NatWest to secure a six-figure loan. The deal has enabled the business to move to a 2,200 square-foot site in Fakenham, with support from Abbey Transport of Norwich.

An extensive refurbishment of the premises has also taken place to maximise capacity, with a mezzanine floor and reception area installed.

Nigel Hendry, managing director of Breckland Precision Engineering, said: “Buying our own premises has long been an important part of our business plan and something we’ve always wanted to do. Our previous rented unit was old and just didn’t set us up for the future.

“With support from Michael and the team at NatWest, we now have the space and layout we need to increase productivity ‒ hopefully reaching the £1 million turnover mark within two years. We’re also in a position to take on more staff and will be recruiting later this year.”
