Mid-pandemic, Shearline Invest in the Future

Matsuura MX-330 PC10

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, UK companies such as Shearline Group are still looking to the future and investing with Matsuura.

Jon Littlechild, Managing Director of Shearline, said of their new investment in a Matsuura MX-330 PC10 5 axis machine;

"Shearline have been running two Matsuura multi-pallet 5 axis machines for the last 10 years at our main site, and we are very pleased with them. We also have five larger Matsuura machines, including horizontal multi-pallet and 5 axis machines at our ShearXL site for larger subcontract component machining. Technical support and backup are good – a very professional company to deal with. The MX-330 is the right investment choice for Shearline right now as we wanted to move to a larger capacity machine at our main site, with more rigidity, small footprint and proven automation.

Even in these difficult times it was not a challenging decision to invest for us right now. We are confident that British manufacturing industry remains fundamentally strong and believe that the demand for UK manufactured goods and associated services will increase following the pandemic. We have big plans for The Shearline Group over the next few years and we feel it’s important to continue to invest now to maintain the quality levels for which Shearline is renowned.

During the installation process the Matsuura Team practised good social distancing and, overall, we were very happy with the MX-330 PC10 installation and commissioning service provided”

The MX-330 PC10 was installed in the past week by Matsuura's dedicated Installation and Commissioning Team.
