PROJECT SUMMARY

To purchase a hydraulic press brakes machine which will increase productivity and lead to an increase in employment

BACKGROUND

DC Fabrication is a light engineering and steel works business owned by Dean Church which was established in 1992. It has grown steadily since that time, reaching the point where further development required a substantial investment in equipment for the business. The purchase of a Hydraulic Press Brakes machine allowed DC Fabrication to work faster and offer faster turnarounds to their clients, since they no longer had to outsource the bending of steel plates.

ACTIVITIES

Funding from DRAP allowed DC Fabrications to purchase the Hydraulic Press Brakes Machine, and also resulted in the employment of one full-time and one part-time member of staff.
