The new 11000sq. ft. facility will be used primarily for CNC machining which it will enable the company to expand their anilox roll manufacturing capacity to support increased customer demands. The new plant is scheduled to become fully operational by the end of June 2019.
Beyond the new machining facility, Cheshire continues to expand its manufacturing capacity with the addition of new equipment. Over the past 12 months, the company has purchased a new CNC machine, a semi-automatic grinder and new interferometry volume measurement equipment for high precision and consistent Anilox volumetric control.
“We are excited about the growth we’ve experienced ,” said Sonia Arcos, Technical Sales Director for Cheshire, “Opening an additional facility in Manchester, along with investing in more machining and quality control equipment demonstrates our ability to evolve and increase the services we provide to our customers as we capture share in this ever evolving market.”
