King's Lynn engineering firm shows new facility to MP
As part of the ongoing expansion of local engineering company Dodman Ltd, its managing director, Tim Skerritt welcomed North-West Norfolk MP James Wild to see its new laser cutting and folding operation.
The facility complements the fabrication, welding, and machine shop services.
It utilises the latest in laser technology through a new Bystronic Bystar Fibre Laser machine. Combining the latest in sheet metal processing technologies, it can offer accurate, reliable, and affordable laser cut and folded products to customers' exact requirements.
The new facility aims to provide a steel cutting and folding service to a diverse range of clients working within various sectors including food, pharmaceutical, aerospace, and power generation.
Dodman, based at North Lynn, will in partnership with companies take them from the design and development of their products right through to prototyping and into full batch manufacturing.
This new facility has also enabled Dodman to expand its Health and Safety department with a new training facility. This will enable the H&S team to undertake in-house training and open it up for courses that other businesses can book.
Courses on offer include: Abrasive wheel training, fire marshal training, manual handling, asbestos awareness, working at height awareness, harness awareness, and CoSHH awareness.
Commenting after his visit James said: "It was encouraging to see the impressive laser machine and meet the team leading this new division as part of Dodman’s plan to grow the business.
"With such high quality engineering businesses based locally, there are many opportunities for people to pursue a career in skilled jobs designing and delivering quality products.”
