Engineering firm unveils £200k piece of kit

An expanding engineering firm in the Forest of Dean has invested £200,000 in a hi-tech piece of machinery.

Cinderford-based Grail Engineering has unveiled its new Haas VF11 5-axis milling machine which has a capacity of X-3,048 mm Y-1,016 mm Z-762 mm.

"We believe it's one of the largest in the local area," said company director Ben Grail. "We are constantly looking for areas that we can invest and improve in."

Grail Engineering, a family-run business established in 1965, does work for businesses ranging from aerospace to nuclear to "anyone coming in off the street", added Ben. "We will try and help anyone with their requirements."

"We are currently experiencing a large increase in production after last year's full lockdown and we are looking to employ in a few areas, including welders.

"As a family-run business we pride ourselves on having a friendly, easy to talk to team who are on hand from start to finish. We are constantly looking for areas to invest in new technology to keep up with customer requirements."

Along with its partner company, Grail Laser Profiles Ltd, the Grail companies have a workforce of 34 with an expected annual turnover this year of £2.5 million.
