RDM targets £25m sales following expansion

Coventry-based RDM Group has unveiled its new advanced engineering and vehicle build centre, which promises to create 25 new jobs.

The company has invested over £400,000 on acquiring an additional 20,000 sq ft facility on the Bilton Industrial Estate and fitting it out with two CNC machines, three injection moulding machines, a three-axis router, laser engraver, CAD/CAM software and a dedicated area for vehicle conversions and builds.

Backed by support from Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), the company expects to develop new business, repatriate sub-contracted production from China and promote its capability to produce special vehicles and low volume builds.

The new machinery and software means RDM Group can now offer precision machining, injection moulding, surface engraving, routing and prototyping services. It has also set-up a traditional trim shop that will be able to cater for ‘one off’ specials right through to low/medium volume line side supply for a host of sectors.
