The second half of 2013 saw ESG spend over £1/2 million on new equipment to add to the 60,000sqft manufacturing base they already had. They had identified areas in the production chain that were potential bottlenecks in terms of capacity and added new machines in these areas to maximise output. They have added another CNC machine and another Forvet drill. These additions increase both their CNC and drilling/milling capacity by 50%. By far the biggest introduction was the automatic double edging line. This new L-shaped line incorporates 2 double edging machines in sequence. This gives ESG the ability to polish all edges on a piece of glass with just one pass through the line, raising their edging capacity by 200%.
