Subcon Laser Cutting Ltd are proud to announce they have won the coveted CET Coventry & Warwickshire “Excellence in Manufacturing” award. The winners were announced at a grand gala dinner and presentation night held at the Ricoh Arena on Thursday 20th October.
Tom Mongan, General Manager at Subcon Laser said “Winning the award was an unbelievable achievement given the pedigree of the other two finalists, namely Jaguar Land Rover and The Autins Group. It was a great honour just to be nominated as a finalist with these two truly world class organisations and then to actually win the award is quite remarkable”.
Mongan continued “It is great honour for all the staff at Subcon as it really is in recognition for all their hard work, dedication and loyalty to the company, because without them winning such a prestigious award would not be possible”.
On the night Subcon also picked up another trophy as they were named as runners up in the “Excellence in Science & Technology” category.
Over the last couple of years Subcon Laser has nearly doubled its turnover whilst investing heavily in the very latest technology to keep it at the forefront of a very competitive and growing industry. The company offers world class two & three dimensional laser cut product, with 2016 seeing the company take delivery of the UK’s first 8kw Trumpf Fiber laser cutting system with every available extra feature, including Cooline Cutting, Drop & Cut and Remote Operational functions.
2016 also saw the company invest in the very latest state of the art 3D laser scanning and inspection system from Faro, which complements the companies 2D laser scanning, inspection and reverse engineering system.
With Brexit still high on the news pages does Subcon Laser worry about what the future holds? Well the answer to that according to Tom Mongan is “Que Sera Sera, we have little control over the continuing political negotiations, however here at Subcon we have not seen a downturn in terms of manufacturing volume and if anything it is full steam ahead and rising. We have not put our investment or business strategy plans on hold. In fact we are looking to expand and with that comes job creation, yes Brexit was a shock, however the majority of companies we deal with are very optimistic going forward into 2017”.
