Perth marine-engineering manufacturer VEEM has begun the year with record-breaking production, shipping a record number of VEEM Propellers in February.
The company has been investing to boost capacity and improve delivery times, including buying two new CNC machines and further automation.
Managing director Mark Miocevich said: “VEEM is globally the only commercial volume producer of fully CNC machined monobloc propellers, taking what was traditionally a hand-profiled inaccurate propeller casting to a fully machined part accurate within microns of the design.
“This is what modern boat manufacturers are demanding for ultimate performance and this is what VEEM is delivering.”
Despite the COVID health-related issues, VEEM Propeller sales have exceeded budget expectations, driven by existing OEM customers and new boat manufacturing customers.
“We will soon have a total of 10 machines that can fully CNC propellers to 4.6m in diameter.
“In addition, we have enhanced shift arrangements and automation processes to further improve production efficiency and increase capacity.
In October VEEM launched a new range of propellers for superyachts.
The company added new patented Interceptor technology which allows users to quickly change the relative pitch of the propellers.
