Award-winning Heywood perimeter detection manufacturer GJD will be able to create some of its products in-house, thanks to new equipment.
The firm has bought a new top of the range Hanwha Techwin SM482 Plus Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machine, which will allow GJD to complete the manufacture of its products in-house.
Having previously outsourced some of the SMT assembly, the new machine will enable high-speed automation during the electronic assembly process.
Mark Topp, Operations Manager at GJD, said: “Our investment in state-of-the-art SMT technology is a real gamechanger for our business.
£The equipment significantly decreases our carbon footprint and aligns with our wider commitment to being a responsible and sustainable manufacturer in the security industry.
“We are able to provide reliable continuity of supply to our customers and establish ourselves as a truly ‘Made in Britain’ brand.”
The new machine also provides GJD with greater flexibility to manufacture, stock and supply its products in small batches, thus allowing the business to expedite its customers’ orders on time and in full.
With nearly 40 years of experience in the security industry, GJD is an award-winning UK manufacturer, designer and supplier of professional external detector equipment, LED illuminators, lighting controllers and ANPR cameras.
