Barrnon has applied for a grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) for the purchase of a fibre laser system.

The new system is a significant commitment for the company and it will be used for precision cutting of material and for laser ablation.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Barrnon,” said Managing Director, Andy Barr, “and it will create wealth and employment in the rural community.”

“This cutting edge technology will be used to develop systems and solutions for tackling challenging engineering problems in specialist environments.”
