Frazer-Nash Manufacturing, the specialised precision engineering business for the space, scientific and advanced technology sectors, is contining with its capital investment programme with the recent purchase of a new Barfeed system from Hydrafeed.
I have been reading a remarkably interesting book called ‘The future is faster than you think’, which considers ‘how converging technologies are transforming business, industries and our lives’. I have lived through many of the developments that the writers use to illustrate the massive and increasingly supersonic speed of change…
Frazer-Nash is the focus of a new video, produced to support the Manufacturing Growth Programme. The video explains how we’ve benefitted from the programme, using it to help us research and capitalise on new market opportunities and, as a result of winning new business, to fund additional production equipment.
Honesty might seem a strange word to apply to engineering. You’d normally expect engineers to be talking about precision, quality, capacity, machining, prototyping or delivery. Terms such as honesty and transparency rarely come into the equation; yet both are vital for every engineering business and every customer relationship.
The term ‘agile engineering’ has traditionally been associated with the field of software development, typically covering areas such as adaptive planning, flexible thinking, rapid delivery and continuous development, often with a ‘fail-fast’ methodology.
