F1 subcontractor expands with 5-axis machining

F1 subcontractor expands with 5-axis machining
At a High Wycombe engineering company many years ago, Ray Harris started out on a five year mould and tool making apprenticeship, at just 16 years old. After two years he left as much of this type of work was being offshored and he could see little future in it. Harris moved to a nearby subcontractor that specialised in supplying components for Formula 1 and has worked in the industry ever since, both in the supply chain and in-house for two leading F1 teams.
