N&R Needham is a precision engineering company offering precision machining of components to micron tolerances to fulfil specific customer requirements.
Prior to the business’ engagement with the Invest to Grow programme, it was undertaking inspection measurements using traditional manual measuring tools and gauges. This reduced N&R’s competitiveness because it limited the scope of supply. It therefore represented a gap in N&R’s technical offer.
The Invest to Grow funding was used to purchase and install equipment, as well as providing training for N&R employees.
This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
