French firm moves in
Comac Europe Limited – a French firm supplying precision engineering tools – has moved into the UK and set up in Woodston, near Peterborough.
The company has taken a six year, full repairing and insuring lease on a unit in The Metro Centre on Welbeck Way through Peterborough property adviser, Carter Jonas.
Further expansion may follow as the company picks up pace in the UK, says Jack Damon, who runs the England office with co-founder of the business Edouard Leriv-erend. A handful of staff are manning the pilot sales office but a distribution capability will be added shortly, also from Woodston.
The company sells and distributes cutting tools and rough and finished tungsten carbide destinated for machining professionals and is a leading player in the European and international markets.
The group was founded in 1997 by Guy Michaud and Edouard Leriverend while Damon has driven the revitalised business to push into the UK.
