Dormor Machine and Engineering, in South Bank, hopes to create new jobs
A FAMILY-OWNED precision engineering firm, which has operated for more than 30 years, has strengthened its future.
Dormor Machine and Engineering, in South Bank, near Middlesbrough, has installed new £500,000 machinery to increase production and create new jobs.
The expansion was helped by a £70,000 grant from the Regional Growth Fund, and bosses say it will allow them to take on more machine operators and apprentices.
Clive Wood, Dormor managing director, said: “This machinery greatly improves our efficiency in boring and milling the diverse and intricate components we make for customers.
“These parts help make up an array of machinery across Tees Valley, from cable hose carousels for cable laying ships, to impellers and valves for the oil and gas industry.
“The sectors we support are growing, and it is important we can respond to customers’ needs.”
Stephen Catchpole, managing director of Tees Valley Unlimited local enterprise partnership (LEP), said: “This is how growth will be achieved in Tees Valley, and as a LEP, we are keen to ensure companies are aware of the funding opportunities available.”
