Romica Engineering, the Beverley-based engineering company, has set expansion plans into motion after securing a package which has a plasterboard manufacturer.
Under the modern deal, this company works with Kent’s Epsilon Engineering to generate are working for Knauf UK, a plasterboard manufacturer in Immingham.
Romica, who currently specialises in subsea lifting and winching equipment, said this deal is part of efforts to diversify into new specialities of engineering.
It will produce stacking systems through the factory facilities.
Graeme Leno, Managing Director of Epison Engineering, said: “We selected Romica as the partner during this project as it was obviously a sizeable job in terms of the machine frames and construction process.
“In to do the job efficiently we needed a partner using the right workshop equipment including large overhead cranes along with a finishing facility for shot-blasting and painting, and a skilled workforce.
“The other benefit with REL is the reason that it’s actually a UK company which helped us de-risk the operation.”
