OPENING OF ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CENTRE 

TP Group (AIM: TPG), the specialist services, consulting and engineering group, is pleased to announce the official opening of its Advanced Manufacturing Centre ("AMC"), at the Dukinfield engineering facility in Greater Manchester. 

The centre was officially opened on 9 February 2018 by The Worshipful The Civic Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Joyce Bowerman at an event attended by more than 30 guests. 

The AMC has the latest precision engineering equipment including high-precision machine tools and metrology, which better positions TP Group to deliver complex engineering solutions in high value sectors. It is the result of investment in excess of £1.5m to upgrade the factory environment, install new equipment and recruit a highly-skilled team of operators and technicians. This investment enables TP Group to work on complex components required by lucrative sectors such as the UK nuclear supply chain, aerospace and defence, all of which are premium end markets for the Group. 

Phil Cartmell, Chief Executive Officer of TP Group, commented: 

"We are delighted to announce the opening of our Advanced Manufacturing Centre which further strengthens our ability to deliver complex engineering solutions across a number of sectors.  

"The investment we have made in this facility is focused on delivering our growth ambitions by adding value in sectors where we are already active, and gaining access to new markets through world-class capability."
