Owner Paul Wilson said: “There are a number of machine shops around the country which require the EDM process, but find it too expensive to have in-house.
“This is an expanding market as the procedure is relatively new and organisations are now starting to recognize the benefits of this process.
“We now plan to introduce more machines, as well as robots that can automate some of our work.”
Wilson has many years of experience in precision engineering, and originally established EDM Zone to provide conventional tool-making practices such as grinding, milling and drilling.
He said: “The speed at which technology is advancing at the moment means that smaller parts and a higher degree of precision are required.
“This will allow us to grow the business significantly over the coming years and create jobs.”
Business Link adviser Paul Brown said: “To achieve this level of growth required investment in specialist machinery and I am delighted with the progress EDM Zone has made in its first years of trading.
“The potential industry for this process is extremely large and relatively untapped, so it creates a stable market for the business to operate in.”
