Local Halesowen & Rowley Regis MP James Morris Visit’s Somers Forge after the recent rebrand.
James Morris was given a tour of our huge site including both the heavy forge and machine shop. He witnessed the mammoth 4,000 tonne hydraulic press forging 20 tonne 410 stainless ingot. This year alone we have invested 2million on upgrades to our presses and continued to install new equipment to the machine shop.
James Morris said “Somers has been an important Halesowen manufacturing company for over 150 years, they not only play an important part in our local community, but are a world leading forging business with a global reach. The work that Somers do is instrumental to the defence supply chain and it was to see first hand the work they do. Forging, although still using many traditional methods, has changed a lot over the decades and Somers continues to be at the cutting edge of innovation”
