Dawson Shanahan, supplier of cold formed and machined components, is investing over £0.75m in new grinding and degreasing technology at its factory in Potters Bar. The investment is part of a long term expansion programme and comes at a time of increased orders, especially from the automotive aerospace and medical sectors.

In particular, Dawson Shanahan will be investing in a CNC grinding centre, custom built in the UK by Coventry based E-Tech, plus component preparation and finishing systems, which together will form an integrated grinding cell; additionally, the company will be installing a high volume degreasing line.

The company recently acquired Floform, saving 12 jobs in Welshpool and creating a number of new posts in the local area.
