News: Dormer handed keys to Rotherham facility


Dormer Tools has been given the keys to their multi-million facility at the groundbreaking Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham. The hand-over is almost a year since work began on the 20,000 sq ft facility, which will house a research and development unit, training centre and an international export service. An official opening of Dormer's new site within the AMP will take place in the New Year. Dormer Tools - part of the Swedish-based Sandvik Group - has relocated from their Shireoaks Road site in Worksop. Nick Garner, Managing Director at Dormer Tools, said: "We are delighted to receive the keys to our new development within the Advanced Manufacturing Park. It's the perfect early Christmas present! "These are exciting times for Dormer Tools and we look forward to 2009 as being a great year for the company to continue its growth from within South Yorkshire. The new facility will expand Dormer's desire to create new innovative solutions and revolutionary design technologies for the engineering cutting tools industry." Dormer's new facility marks a significant investment by Sandvik, who expect it to become one of the leading research and development facilities in Europe, capitalising on the region's manufacturing expertise. A key focus will be the development of new cutting tools for machining of advanced aerospace materials, high performance drilling and specialist applications in sectors such as motorsport and medical equipment. Investments by Yorkshire Forward and the European Union's European Regional Development Fund have supported the move with Dormer acquiring the land from regeneration specialist Strategic Sites, who has teamed up with UK Coal to develop industrial space within the AMP.
