Black Country manufacturer targets £250,000 sales uplift

A BLACK Country manufacturing business is using one of the sector’s largest trade shows to launch a new service.

Set up by the directors of Worcester Presses, Titan Monitoring has spent the last twelve months designing and developing a range of load monitoring systems and calibration equipment designed to overcome tooling and high maintenance costs.

The Stourbridge firm has invested £100,000 into the new service, which has been launched at the MACH 2016 trade show at the NEC.

The company is hoping to secure £250,000 of sales in the first year, after receiving significant interest from suppliers to the automotive, aerospace and construction sectors.

It is hoping to add to this from the thousands of visitors expected to visit the latest show, which runs this week.

Tony Carter, director of Titan, said that by installing load monitoring equipment, manufacturers could ensure the optimum performance from their presses.  

“Our equipment enables immediate diagnosis of load faults, which ensures greater accuracy when producing components, resulting in less waste and downtime and ultimately, more efficient production,” he said.

Titan controls the full manufacturing process in its Black Country factory, which enables it to turn orders around quickly and a team is in place to carry out installations on existing or new presses.

As part of its initial growth, the firm has already created three new jobs to help with the roll-out of the business, including Kevin Gardner (Sales Manager) and Michelle Hall (Business Manager).

Mr Gardner said: “It has taken us twelve months to develop the technology and now we are ready to get it out to the wider market.  MACH represents the perfect place to launch our new solutions which will make power presses more efficient and profitable.”
