Bifrangi to Build Forge in U.K.
September 4, 2012
Bifrangi UK, the British operation of Italian steel forger Bifrangi, received approval from local authorities to begin construction of its planned forge in Lincoln, Midlands, U.K. The $79 million investment is an expansion of the company’s Lincoln factory, and it is expected to create 100 jobs to supply parts to the power-generation industry. The expansion will include one of the world’s largest screw presses, which will be used to produce engine crankshafts.
