New company moves into Bridge Works
Bridge Works, the old Thorney Precision engineering site on The Causeway is to re-open in the new year.
There had been rumours that the buildings were to be demolished for housing, but the factory has been taken on a 10-year lease by another engineering company – PCML.
Jonathan Rowe, Managing Director of Thorney Precision for 10 years and son of the founder Patrick Rowe, is now Group Sales Director of PCML.
The company serves high-tech customers, mostly in Cambridge. “We are growing rapidly and now have five sites, three in March and one in Cambridge – we employ 130 people and our turnover is £10 million,” explained Jonathan.
“We will shortly be moving machines and staff in and will be operational in January. The factory will soon be full of busy machines again and employing more and more people, hopefully from the Peterborough (and Thorney) area.”
