Significant investment set to drive further growth for Barnsley engineering company

A Barnsley engineering company has made major investments to support continued growth as demand for its products continues to soar.

Local company LNS Turbo has invested £850,000 in new machinery, creating ten new jobs in the last year at their site at Waterside Park in Wombwell. The continued investment by new owners is helping to increase productivity and bring automation into their processes.

LNS Turbo opened in 1999 and manufactures chip disposal systems for industrial cutting machines, selling them across the UK and Europe. The Barnsley site is the company’s only manufacturing site for chip conveyor systems in Europe and currently employs 76 people.

Throughout 2021 the company saw an extraordinary hike in demand for its products, far exceeding growth projections, which has continued this year.

Working closely with Enterprising Barnsley, the council’s business support team, LNS Turbo has received support over several years in reviewing their business operations and achieving efficiencies.

Councillor Robert Frost, Cabinet Spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: “LNS Turbo are a well-established business in Barnsley, and it is excellent news that they are once again investing to drive further growth and create jobs in the area.

“They have a thriving business model, supplying right across Europe, and we are delighted they are achieving such success here in our borough.”

LNS Turbo UK operations manager Mark Scanlan said: “The investment in new machinery, equipment and facilities is helping us to increase capacity to satisfy our growing customer demand and enabling us to change the manufacturing environment in which we operate.

“New facilities include offices, locker rooms and canteen facilities on a purpose-built mezzanine floor, freeing up much valuable floor space for further improvement activities.

“The support we have received from Enterprising Barnsley has been invaluable in helping the company access funding streams and having the support to develop our operation. This has provided job security and opportunities for our employees as we continue to grow and enables us to show that manufacturing is alive and well in Barnsley and the surrounding regions.”
