Harwin invests in manufacturing facility

Harwin has invested more than £1M recently in new manufacturing equipment at its manufacturing centre in Portsmouth, UK

The company is committed to maintaining a vertically-integrated manufacturing capability, so that it can remain competitive and deliver innovative products. It also has a policy of replacing all plant within five years ensuring it has a state-of-the-art production facility. 

The £1,000,000 investment includes two new Arburg electronic moulding machines which are currently being employed to ramp up production of Harwin’s new 1.25mm pitch high-performance Gecko connector family. Other new equipment includes EDM wire erosion, hole drilling and die

sinking machinery from AgieCharmilles, a MAST 3 wetting balancing machine and substantial amounts of tooling. This new investment is on top of a new £350,000 water treatment plant installed by the company last year.

Comments Chairman Damon De Laszlo: “Our philosophy is that it is only by keeping all manufacturing stages under our control here in Portsmouth that we will be able to constantly innovate and deliver new, high-quality products to the market. To do that we must have the best equipment; this demands constant reinvestment. But we can only reap the benefits offered by these leading edge machines if we have a highly-skilled and flexible workforce, which is why Harwin is also committed to training and development programs for our staff.”
