Arrival Of 170 Tonne Machine Signals Fresh Investment In Derbyshire

 

A state-of-the-art aluminium extrusion press ordered by Garner Aluminium Extrusions, trading as Garnalex, has been making its way down the M1 motorway with a police escort.

The route for the specialised heavy haulage took the machinery via Ripley to its new temporary home at The Firs Works in Heage, travelling past the historic Heage Windmill. The photograph shows the striking contrast of old and new technology side by side, in an area already rich with innovation in manufacturing.

The total investment in Garnalex is £9m to date, including the delivery of the aluminium press, and is planned to increase further over the summer.
