The Engineering Technology Group, a leading independent UK distributor of premium global branded machine tools, is opening a new facility in Wellesbourne.

The group is moving various operations to the new site, and relocating about 20 staff there from their other premises in Southam and Coventry.

Managing director John Temple said: “This latest investment in new premises continues the growth and development of ETG and offers customers an even more improved and streamlined new machine installation procedure.

“With our pre-delivery inspection and turnkey engineering teams now working together under one roof the combination of resources from two split locations will make the operation smoother and more efficient for the benefit of customers.”

Leamington-based property consultants ehB Commercial were advisers on the acquisition of the new premises.

Director Simon Hain advised ETG on the design and build of its Southam headquarters 12 years ago. He also advised the company on this latest expansion and handled the acquisition of the new 17,500 sq ft facility on the Wellesbourne Distribution Park.

In addition to pre-delivery inspection and turnkey operations, the site will also house the service and spares operations and a dedicated undercover reception area for new machine tools arriving from around the globe.

ETG’s products are used in automotive, aerospace, medical, motorsport and the wide base of UK engineering and subcontracting. Among the leading names represented in the UK by ETG are the German Chiron, Handtmann and Stama brands and the world renowned Nakamura Tome products from Japan.
