Visit to Cullimore Engineering

Wednesday saw us visit the Premises of Cullimore Engineering on JB Cullen Drive.
Cullimore Engineering Ltd, also known as CEL, has been in the precision engineering business for 40 years.
From humble beginnings in Ian Cullimore’s garage, CEL’s continuous growth has led to investing in a purpose designed workshop in the Ashburton Business Estate.
Ian and Sam Cullimore spoke to us about their business before giving us a guided tour of their facility.
From Product design and development, 3D printing, Milling, Turning, Horizontal Boring, Vertical Machining and Fabrication, Ian and Sam showed the wide ranging and skilled capabilties of their business.
Thank you Ian and Sam for a very informative evening.

Members watch on as a locomotive tyre is heated which causes it expand to allow it to be fitted to the wheel.
