MMS builds on our transaction experience in a wide range of customer segments for the high-mix, low-volume supply chain. Services in this sector principally comprise mechanical and forming processes for a diverse range of materials (from large castings all the way to microparts made from high-performance materials), and their assembly to produce components. The market for technologies and applications is correspondingly broad and this forms the foundation of our approach to the sector.
