Mini-Cam buys Austrian factoryWarrington-based pipeline inspection equipment specialist Mini-Cam (www.minicam.co.uk) has increased its production capacity by investing in a new factory in Austria.

The purpose-built unit has been developed for its subsidiary company InPipe Innovation at a cost of 500,000 euros. This has allowed InPipe to move from a small workshop to a 7,500ft2 facility in the Alpine village of Riezlern, Kleinwalsertal, near the German border.

The new facility is managed by Dietmar Jochum and currently has eight staff, with further recruitment planned. Mini-Cam managing director Nigel Wilson said the site will play a key part in the firm’s growth.

It is used for the mechanical design and manufacture of precision parts and the pre-assembly of Mini-Cam’s range of crawler and push camera inspection systems, which are used in underground surveys in more than 40 countries.

Final assembly takes place at Mini-Cam’s headquarters in Warrington.

Mr Wilson said the expanded InPipe operation will enable the company to hold more stock in Europe to meet growing demand. “This new building gives us a strong European presence and room for expansion.

“Austria and southern Germany are renowned world-wide as being centres of engineering excellence, so being in this location also gives us access to the latest machining techniques and skilled staff.

“It’s a very exciting development for Mini-Cam, as we embark on our next phase of development.”
