Die is cast for job creation at PMS

Have your say

New jobs are being created at a Rotherham company that is predicting its business will grow by 50 per cent over the next three years.

PMS Diecasting supplies the UK’s agricultural, automotive, hardware and retail industries with high-quality, bespoke metal fixtures, fittings and components and recently moved to a larger factory with £600,000-worth of funding from Yorkshire Bank.

The company has also introduced cutting-edge laser scanning technology which allows almost any item to be scanned and reverse engineered and has generated a significant surge in new business.

The technology allows accurate scale models of any item to be made using 3D printers and customers for the technology include museums which are scanning their exhibits to produce replicas.

Managing director Gordon Panter, who has overseen a period of sustained growth for the employee owned company since he took over the business in 2000, said: “Our attention to detail and dedication to delivering what customers want, when they need it, has played a key role in growing our business to what it is today.

“Our reputation coupled with the use of leading technology has put us in a position to take our business to the next level and with the support of Yorkshire Bank we are taking that opportunity.”

Yorkshire Bank head of business and private banking for South Yorkshire, Kevin Elliott, said: “PMS Diecasting is a strong, local manufacturing business which South Yorkshire can be proud of. It already plays an important role in the supply chain of a number of key industries but still has ambitions to grow further.”
