A decade of precision for Accurate Laser Cutting
The company, which has specialised in laser cutting and folding sheet metal since 2005, plans to mark the milestone occasion by offering its customers a range of celebratory offers and discounts throughout the month of September. It will also officially open its brand new production facility, which boasts a purpose built office for their 30 strong work force and valuable space for a dedicated pressbrake and quality check centre.
Company director Jon Till said: “Our 10th anniversary is a significant milestone for Accurate Laser Cutting. It’s great to look back at how we have progressed since our formation in 2005; starting with only myself and business partner Steve working from a small portable cabin, to now employing a team of 30 people in a 15,000 square foot premises. We believe the position we are in today is a major achievement. We have experienced rapid growth over the past couple of years in particular, with turnover up by 50 percent since 2013 to a projected £4.5 million this year.”
Plans are also in place to create five new jobs at Accurate Laser Cutting’s Oldbury headquarters and anticipate additional employment opportunities will be created over the coming months as they continue to grow. The firm, which also has a depot in Rotherham (Accurate Laser Cutting SJS), has an ambitious vision of opening further depots in every major manufacturing city within the UK.
The finishing touches to their purpose-built office facility have now been made, along with the recent commissioning of a state-of-the-art 6kW 4m x 2m fiber laser and a range of advanced folding equipment.
The company’s recent decision to upgrade its manufacturing equipment has allowed them to significantly increase productivity, resulting in shorter lead times and a fast turnaround for their customers. As a reflection of their growth, a night shift has also been introduced and the business now hosts a seamless 24/7 operation. This extra investment has enhanced its enviable reputation for rapid order processing and dedicated customer care.
Company director Steve Morgan added: “We have built up a strong reputation over the years for manufacturing top quality components together with excellent standards in customer service. We aim to get back to our customers within 4 hours of their quotation request and provide a rapid turnaround on all orders. It’s this ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards in precision, quality and price that gives us a distinctive edge over our competitors.”
The company anticipates these latest technological investments will provide the extra capacity to boost productivity levels and create a solid foundation for future growth, with a goal of rolling out a new depot in the next 12-18 months.
