Advanced Chemical Etching doubles size of its factory

Advanced Chemical Etching (ACE), a provider of precision components, prototyping and low-volume production, has opened a new building that will more than double its factory size to 20,000ft² (1,860m²).

The Shropshire-based company has invested more than £1m in taking on two new adjacent units and in acquiring additional equipment that will enable it to reduce lead times and improve quality.

ACE is sourcing a number of new etching machines from a specialist US manufacturer that will reportedly be installed and up and running by early 2013.
