More than 130 visitors attended the official inauguration of SGS Carbide Tools’ new UK manufacturing facility and European headquarters in Wokingham, Berkshire, the company said.

Representing an investment of over £6 million in facilities and new CNC tool and cutter grinding machines, SGS said the 25,000 ft2 manufacturing and logistics supply centre will form the hub of the company’s European operations. This will provide a springboard for further growth with customers in the aerospace, defence, motorsport, medical, power generation, oil & gas, as well as precision engineering sectors, it said.
