Graham Mulholland, epm: technology group’s CEO, commented, “After a year of all years as we moved and settled into our new 60,000 sq. ft. technology centre, this order is great news for team epm and a fitting way to sign off the year as we all get ready for Christmas.”
Mulholland continues, “We’ve now secured substantial new orders in aerospace, motorsport, defence and new automotive market sectors which will see the epm group grow considerably throughout 2016. “This particular order is for a complex assembly of components which are very high-profile and we’re thrilled to now be working closely with our clients as this first vehicle programme goes into production in Q1 2016.
“We now have clear vision of other components which will also go into production at various times throughout 2016.
