Cleveland Bridge UK has increased its production capacity with an investment in a new production line, which includes specialist equipment to cut steel plate. The steel fabrication company has added a FICEP Gemini HD36 CNC plasma plate processing machine and a FICEP 1101DZB automated saw and drill line to its extensive site in Darlington, County Durham.

The new machine will increase the company’s capacity to cut profiles from steel plate by around 50 per cent, supporting both structures and infrastructure projects with small fitting components. This additional capacity will help to deliver projects across the UK and around the world. With the new equipment comes an investment in training to upskill the operators using it, and the member’s company’s production support department.
