Omega PLC has further invested in plant equipment as its relationship with Homag Group AG continues to go from strength to strength. Three years after completely overhauling its manufacturing machinery and installing Homag edgebanders, saws, drills, presses and CNC routing machines, volume growth has prompted Omega to invest further with the addition of a new Centateq P110 point to point drill. This is the second of these machines that Omega has acquired and will help to add more routing and drilling capacity to the production floor.
Alastair England, operations and production director of Omega, said: “Homag are a vital partner of Omega and are fully integrated into the business, ensuring that we have the best fleet of machines to meet our quality and growth plans for the future, all backed up with a class-leading support package. We believe that our very strong partnership, where over 95% of the machines in our factory are made by Homag, will make sure that we can achieve these goals.”
Further to the installation of the Centateq, a new Sawteq B400 saw will also be installed in February. This will allow more efficient cutting of MFC for both doors and carcasses which will increase production capacity still further.
On a recent visit to Omega the new CEO of Homag Group AG, Dr Daniel Schmitt, said: “We find the growth plans of Omega particularly exciting and Homag are fully committed to supporting them in this. With these two new machines we can see the importance Omega places on ensuring that their production capabilities remain at the forefront of technology and that Omega have serious intent on where they want the business to go in the future.”
