My team requires this investment to enable them to do their jobs.” Graham Mulholland continued “All the investments we have made are with UK manufacturers, one of the manufactures is even within our region therefore UK money is invested to protect UK jobs.”
Graham Mulholland finally stated “I am very proud of our ability to push forward with a very well balanced plan. Epm has a great team approach and I know my team deserves the latest equipment to help them perform and, despite all the issues locally in the engineering sector right now, Derby can still be very proud of all the achievements in making difficult engineering challenges look easy.”
Epm say this investment will see them add a further 18-20% to its capacity which in turn will support employment opportunities within its core manufacturing team.
