One of the UK’s largest 2 and 5 axis laser profiling companies, Nuneaton-based Subcon Laser Cutting Ltd, has just celebrated two landmark events.
2014 has seen the company make a £1million pound investment in the very latest technology available, plus it is 25 years since the company was formed by Bill & Christine Brown in 1989.
This major investment in a 5kw Trumpf Brightline fibre laser cutting machine and a state of the art nitrogen generating system, the first of its kind in the UK, has seen the company create 10 extra jobs whilst also significantly reducing its carbon footprint.
Marcus Jones MP was invited to unveil a commemorative plaque at the company’s headquarters in Nuneaton Warwickshire.
This recent ceremony attended by representatives from some of the UK’s leading manufacturing companies including Honda, Volvo, JLR and TATA, were given a guided tour of Subcon’s impressive manufacturing facility.
The local region was also well represented with the likes of MIRA, Penso and Aermotive in attendance, all of whom are investing millions of pounds in their own impressive expansion plans.
Tom Mongan General Manager at Subcon said “That it was quite fitting that in our 25th Anniversary year the company had made this major investment in the very latest technology available”, he also said “A major part of the company’s success is down to its staff, a lot of them having been at Subcon for at least 15 years, therefore their knowledge, their knowhow and loyalty is priceless”.
