CMS Cepcor all set to expand
Planning permission granted for expansion of headquarters and warehousing facilities in Coalville
CMS Cepcor have recently been granted planning permission to substantially expand their Coalville headquarters facilities in Leicestershire.
The expansion will include the construction of a new, purpose-built head office that will incorporate research and development, inspection, sales, administration and crusher training facilities, alongside substantial expansion of the company’s existing crusher parts storage and distribution warehousing.
The new facilities are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
This latest development follows recent substantial investment in CMS Cepcor’s technical centre in Coalville, which was commissioned in 2013. This subsequently included the integration of Baguley Precision Engineers Ltd, the wholly owned UK manufacturing subsidiary business of CMS Cepcor, into the company’s Precision Services Division.
The new technical centre with its CNC manufacturing capability has further enhanced the manufacturing, inspection and repair facilities in Coalville, providing greatly improved manufacturing efficiency for the company. Approved facilities now include CNC, milling, turning, boring, slotting, grinding, drilling, pressing, welding, co-ordinate measuring, material testing and assembly.
CMS Cepcor’s commercial director, Lee Hodges said: ‘In recent years we have increasingly consolidated manufacture of our precision-machined crusher spare parts in house, and the expansion of facilities in Coalville will help to ensure we remain the genuine alternative to the original equipment manufacturer.’
