Ernest Gill Manufacturing, a famous Yorkshire-based manufacturer with over 60 years’ of trading history is using its continued success to invest in the latest sheet metal processing technology – a Trumpf TruLaser 3530 laser cutter with LiftMaster sheet handling equipment – enhancing the company’s competitiveness even further.

Formed in 1945 Ernest Gill Manufacturing of Halifax has grown to become a 100-strong company with two main business streams. Firstly the family-owned company is a successful subcontract fabricator to the office furniture, heating, lighting and point of display industries.However, Ernest Gill is also an OEM, manufacturing its own range of office furniture for sister company ‘Emergent Crown’ that supplies both private and public sector customers.

Until recently Ernest Gill Manufacturing had processed most of its sheet requirements using a CNC coil processing line and turret punch presses, but these were failing to provide sufficient flexibility to meet both current and predicted demand.
