Nuneaton’s General Manager, Paul Patterson, sees the introduction of ARRK’s new Paint Spraying service as an important step in enhancing our range of in-house capabilities for customers who require a tailored composite solution.
Paul commented: “We identified a growing demand in the market place for such a service, as customers continue to embrace the use of composites. With this in mind, we recruited Ian Stevens, with his extensive experience in this field, to head up our operation. Ian has, in turn, brought on board a team of skilled paint sprayers and finishers”. ARRK has invested in a new 15m2 Dalby Genesis Q Spray booth, along with a number of preparation and polishing rooms, and a dedicated mixing room. In addition to the five new recruits, Paul and Ian have been keen to invest in high quality equipment to ensure the delivery of premium painted components which can be anything from composites through to partial models for show events. Although we see the primary demand for this service coming from the local automotive OEM’s, we are well equipped to accommodate many other, different industries and their demands.
The new facility was officially opened last week by ARRK Corporation’s President, Yasuo Suzuki, who is currently on a tour of ARRK’s Engineering, Prototyping, Tooling and Low Volume Production companies around Europe. The ARRK Corporation, with its Global headquarters in Osaka, Japan, sees composite solutions as a key growth area for the Nuneaton site, and for ARRK globally.
Paul added: “Our composite production capability here in Nuneaton is at the front end but we are also backed up by our sister companies around the world, from P+Z Engineering in Germany, who work on the design elements, to ARRK Shapers, in France, who produce composite tooling and associated tooling services. Working together as one, along with other ARRK sites globally, puts us in an excellent position to support our customers’ needs wherever they may be around the world!”
