Danbury invests in workshop facilities

New cutting technology in the workshop will mean shorter build times for customers at Danbury Motorcaravans. The company has invested approximately £250K on new facilities in manufacturing that allows it to use a computer control CNC router unit to produce it’s units in house. Although Danbury has always designed and templated its interiors, the company has previously relied on its association with other partners to produce most, but not all, of the motorhome panels required. As the business has grown and its requirements have become more stringent, the decision was made to bring this side of the operation in house and to have a better overview of production times and costs.

By doing so Danbury claims to significantly reduce customer build times and have the flexibility to manufacture replacement parts or slight variations to interiors without untimely delays.

The new equipment consists of a CNC router which will accommodate boards of up to 10ft x 5ft allowing Danbury to cut everything from a small cupboard front to an entire one piece floor, also two automatic static edge banding machines to give that high end professional finish.

Simon Antill, General Manager of Danbury Mototcaravans, commented, “Our recent addition of a careers section on our website inviting applicants to register their interest in working for Danbury Motorcaravans will ensure we will continue to employ the right people as well as creating internal promotions where existing skills can be transferred and new ones learnt. We have current vacancies in Sales and Media Support, Parts Department and Manufacturing, which totals eight new positions with the aim of bolstering the work force to 46 strong.”
