In-stock machinery meets demand

Haffner Murat’s SBA-2 and SBA-4 machining centres are now available from stock with rapid delivery into fabricators, the company has reported.

Dave Thomas, managing director at Haffner Murat, said: “Due to the completion of our new state-of-the-art purpose-built factory in Istanbul, Turkey, we have rapidly increased our manufacturing output. This has resulted in two of our most popular machining centres now being available from stock, which supports the growing demand from customers looking to bring high-quality automation into their businesses.”

The SBA-2 and SBA-4 machines are available with routing and sawing stations that can be mixed and matched to meet individual requirements.

“To put the demand for automated manufacturing into context, we have been consistently selling automated packages since our return to work following the first lockdown,” Dave said. “This not only shows the demand for our machines but demonstrates how fabricators are investing in their businesses for the immediate and longer term. Having two of our most popular machines available from stock will certainly help support the growing demand for our products.”

Furthermore, until March 31, 2023, companies investing in qualifying new plant and machinery will be able to claim a 130% super-deduction capital allowance, cutting tax bills by up to 25p for every £1 invested.

“With the launch of the new government initiative, there has never been a better time to invest in machinery,” Dave said. “Since this proposal was announced, we have already witnessed a further surge of interest as fabricators look to invest.”
