High stock at Haffner Murat

Machinery company Haffner Murat confirmed that its popular SBA-2 and SBA-4 machining centres are now available from stock with rapid delivery. Dave Thomas, Haffner Murat’s managing director, said: “Due to the completion of our new state-of-the-art, purpose-built factory in Istanbul, Turkey, we have rapidly increased our manufacturing output. This has resulted in two of our most popular machining centres now being available from stock, which supports the growing demand from customers looking to bring high-quality automation into their businesses.”

The SBA-2 and SBA-4 machines are the stalwarts of Haffner Murat’s expanding machine portfolio, with features and developments purposely designed to support fabricators’ businesses at every level. The machines are available with routing and sawing stations that can be mixed and matched to meet precise individual requirements. Every element of the machines have been designed to improve production quality and accuracy, allowing fabricators to scale up or down their output as demand dictates.

Dave added: “To put the demand for automated manufacturing into context, we have been consistently selling automated packages since our return to work following the first lockdown. This not only shows the demand for our machines but demonstrates how fabricators are investing in their businesses for the immediate and longer-term. Having two of our most popular machines available from stock, will certainly help support the growing demand for our products.”

Fabricators looking to invest in machine automation have been boosted by the government’s new super-deduction initiative. From 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2023, companies investing in qualifying new plant and machinery will be able to claim a 130% super-deduction capital allowance, cutting tax bills by up to 25p for every £1 invested. Dave said: “With the launch of the new government initiative, there has never been a better time to invest in machinery. Since this proposal was announced, we have already witnessed a further surge of interest as fabricators look to invest.”
