Arrk Europe has invested in a 3, 200 tonne injection moulding machine from Krauss Maffei for its tooling and molding facility in Petersfield, Hampshire. According to the company, the purchase of the KM 3200 – 33000MX is a clear statement of Arrk’s continued growth in the UK and its commitment to providing customers with a range of first class capabilities.
