8 used machine tools assist in Titans early development – Titan Manufacturing Weymouth

Thursday August 21 2014

Formed two years ago by partners Simon Smith, David Higson & Jon Higson, Titan Manufacturing specialise in CNC precision engineering and sheet metal welding fabrication.

By combining both the machining services and metal fabrication facilities the Dorset based company are able to remain a key competitor within the industry and are proud of their high standards of quality and versatility.  In addition to these core offerings, Titan also provide painting, electro plating, powder coating and component assembly and are therefore equipped to provide the customer with the complete package from start to finish.

In order to grow and expand as a company Titan approached world-recognised brand Dugard to supply them with machine tools in order to accommodate their growing in-house machining requirements. Initially Titan purchased just one used machine quickly followed by a further seven over a two year period. This demonstrates not only the growth in this area of their business but also their confidence in a machine tool supplier during such a crucial phase of their expansion.

With an extensive and impressive range of CNC machine tools, Dugard are leaders in their field, providing an excellent after sales support service from highly experienced staff.  Among the eight used machine tools purchased from Dugard were a Yang, Miyano and an XYZ, all of which were bought used to enable Titan to keep their capital costs to a minimum from the outset.

Simon from Titan Manufacturing says “Dugard have provided us with most of the machines within our workshop, their service is good and their machines are competitively priced and come with a warranty which always helps when buying used. I am sure at some point in the future we will consider new machines and Dugard will be involved.”

As one of the largest importers of CNC machines into Europe, Dugard’s range of vertical machining centres, 5 axis VMCs, Horizontal Machines and CNC lathes is very well established.  With a highly experienced team behind them and their renowned reliability and value added features Dugard is the obvious choice when looking to purchase a value for money machine tool either new or used.
