Star GB impress members with their new UK headquarters


Star Micronics GB hosted the latest Made in the Midlands breakfast morning inside their brand new purpose-built UK headquarters.

Star are dedicated to supplying quality CNC sliding head lathes. The Star team are some of the best turning applications engineers in the UK, their machines offer you accuracy, repeatability, reliability and lower cycle times on turned parts.

Their new site is located in Derby opposite the Rolls-Royce factory on Raynesway. Visitors were presented with a chance to see Star’s SR-32J machine, which is a leading favourite with turned parts manufacturers within the UK. The new headquarters includes a 2,700 square feet showroom which features their range of sliding head lathes and FMB barfeeds.

Star attracted over 60 representatives of the Midlands manufacturing sector to their brand new headquarters, in turn Managing Director of Star, Steve Totty said: “I thought it was very good, it was nice to meet manufacturers who we don’t know.”

Star broke attendees into groups for their showroom tour, which enabled guests to gain an interesting insight into how their factory operates on a daily basis. Senior Area Sales Manager, Mark Anson took attendees on an informative trip around their factory, which received great feedback on social media:

Made in the Midlands breakfast morning’s help to facilitate networking amongst directors of local manufacturing and engineering companies within the Midlands. They provide an ideal platform for future collaboration between attendees, as each company provide a 60 second overview of their company capabilities.
