Firm’s workforce set to double

Sheffield Precision Medical, which makes instruments for orthopaedic surgeons, is increasing its workforce from 27 to 53 over the next three years and increasing capacity in response to a growing export business.

The company is investing more than £2m in an extension of its Petre Street premises and installing new machines and systems. Exports currently account for 40% of its £3.5m turnover, with clients in Europe and America.
