2D CNC is expanding its sales team operating out of its Hinckley headquarters following the appointment of Peter Colledge to cover the southern area. Mr Colledge brings an in-depth knowledge of machining centre and in particular, milling technology in both OEM and subcontracting sectors following 17 years in machine tool sales.

Having served an apprenticeship in BAe Weybridge, he progressed into the subcontract sector producing automotive components and has since followed a highly successful sales and customer support role representing certain of UK’s leading machine tool suppliers.

Said 2D CNC Director David Holden: “Following our merger earlier in the year with the Halbronn Group as part of a strategic technology alliance, it added the OKK range of 5-axis, horizontal and vertical machining centres to our portfolio as well as expanding our automation capability involving cells and systems. Here, Peter’s expertise in the sector will prove invaluable to support our customers in the south.”

Added Mr Colledge: “The range of machines available from 2D CNC, that include Mitsui Seiki, which has FMS and cell technology installations in leading aerospace companies in my area to the high specification Fermat, Reiden and Wele machining centres each has a strong production reputation. Now with the latest OKK machine range and the additional automation and work handling systems available, I feel I can offer a complementary product line to suit different customer requirements with a very strong application and service support operation.”
