EDM has invested BPS1.3m to expand its Manchester, England-based manufacturing facility, the company said.
The new 18,000 square feet structure is being built at EDM´s headquarters to meet the demands of the company´s increasing order book. The purpose-built facility will house up to 40 employees across a range of disciplines and provide all the resources needed to enable the company to manufacture its training simulators. Work on the new building is expected to begin in September this year with an anticipated completion date of March 2017.
In the past 12 months, EDM has announced major orders from Cathay Pacific, China Southern Airlines, All Nippon Airways and Singapore Airlines and counts Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and Thales amongst its customer base.
EDM is a provider of training simulators to the civil aviation, defence, rail and other industries. EDM provides airlines with door trainers, cabin service trainers, cabin emergency evacuation trainers and full size mockups and defence organisations with procedure trainers, maintenance trainers, ejection seats, simulators and full size replicas.
