Promach 3D follows recent expansion with move to the iHub
Derby-based precision engineering company Promach 3D is the latest manufacturing company to establish a base at Connect Derby’s £12m iHub innovation centre.
Established in 2004, Promach 3D specialises in the manufacture of both conventional and complex components for use in the aerospace, rail and motorsport industries. The company, which expanded its workforce in 2017 due to increasing demands on its capacity, has taken on an additional unit located in the iHub.
The high-quality accommodation, easily accessible location and facilities on offer at the iHub will allow Promach 3D to expand its footprint in Derby even further and continue to grow in the engineering sector.
Since it was launched in 2016, the £12m iHub, which has Enterprise Zone status, has attracted a diverse range of businesses to its 18 offices and 14 ground floor workshops. Occupancy levels have now reached 94%, with local, regional and national companies taking advantage of the building’s strategic location on Infinity Park.
Commenting on the move to the iHub, John Burke, commercial managerat Promach 3D, said:
"In order to meet the demands on our business and to increase our manufacturing capacity, we felt it necessary to expand to a location like the iHub. We have our headquarters on Victory Park, which is our principal site, and the additional facility at the iHub is set to support it.”
"We are delighted to be at the iHub. It gives us a great platform to train new staff and expand our customer base. We also have a training programme in place to bring through young engineers.
"Being at the heart of a manufacturing district is really key to our business as it allows us to be accessible and responsive to our customers’ needs.”
Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, added:
“We’re delighted to welcome John and his team to the iHub. Since it was launched, the iHub has established a reputation for providing a supportive and collaborative environment to enable businesses to innovate and grow. We look forward to supporting John and the Promach 3D team as they continue their impressive growth.”
