Altus Group,supplier of capital equipment in the UK and Ireland,will complete an extensive expansion program in June when it opens its doors to a new applications facility in Redditch. 

Customers are invited to the new facility on the 19th and 20th of June, when Altus introduces its new headquarters, in an event that will see speakers from a wide array of electronics equipment manufacturers provide the latest updates on product developments, technological concepts, innovations and manufacturing processes.

‘’With our long-term strategy for growth, Altus requires intelligent investments in infrastructure to ensure we continue to provide a first class service andfocus on our support capabilities,” said Richard Booth, Altus’ Managing Director: “This has led us to move into our new home, which will enable us to provide a higher standard of applications qualification and justification. 

“The investment gives us a substantial, 404 sq. m. purpose-built facility, which includes head office space and a prestigious demonstration area. It also provides us with an opportunity to run bespoke training packages on production equipment, away from the stresses of a customer’s own site. What’s more, we now hope to have a base to function from for the foreseeable future, and continue to build from the success of recent years.”

Richard concludes: “To introduce our new facilities, we are holding a two day technology event. This is the perfect way to present our new facility to both customers and our pre-eminent suppliers, and will allow us to use the demonstration facilities, training rooms and presentation area to the best effect. We look forward to welcoming customers to our new applications facility during the technology event.”

The technology event will include an interesting mix of presentations and hands-on demonstrations. Cencorp Automation will introduce the company’s rangeof flexible and effective equipment, including odd formplacement and laser applications, with an in-depth look at its use within the electronics industry.

Koh Young will look at intelligent solutions with technologies that have 3D AOI and SPI capabilities, with kolb Cleaning Technology GmbH introducing its long-term cleaning solutions and equipment.
