Lund Brothers, based in West Sussex, UK, founded in 1898 is one of the oldest sheet metal manufacturing companies in the UK, and has been a user of JETCAM Expert since 1998, driving a range of Wiedemann punch presses.
While essentially happy with the system they were tempted to try a competing system in 2001 offered by their MRP provider.
