Subcon Laser Cutting, a Nuneaton-based provider of laser cutting solutions, has just invested £1m (1,707,900 AUD) in a new machine, which gave them the possibility of getting more international opportunities. According to sources, the firm has bought the UK’s first 8kw
According to sources, the firm has bought the UK’s first 8kw fibre laser cutting system that has the ability to cut fine detail into thick materials and can even be operated remotely. This latest investment then brought their company to the next level, with new orders and projects coming in from India and other inquiries from countries like Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. Currently, Subcon Laser Cutting, which employs around 30 staff, is looking at more investments to better secure their position in the industry.
“I’m immensely proud that we here at Subcon are playing our part as we have continually invested heavily in the very latest technology available to keep us at the forefront of a rapidly changing and challenging environment,” said Tom Mongan, the general manager of Subcon Laser Cutting. “It means we can now produce components we couldn’t have attempted before – whether for the automotive industry through to unique items such as the pizza oven,” he added.
The 8kw fibre laser cutting system was said to be supplied and manufactured by Trumpf Group, a Germany-based company that has production facilities in other parts of the world as well, including the one on Farmington, U.S.A and the one in Luton, UK.
The new technology, particularly, was unveiled by Jonathan Browning, the chairman of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership, and Louise Bennett, the chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce. Bennett even stated that he was delighted to be invited by Tom Mongan to unveil the machine. “Subcon Laser Cutting is a great example of a company investing in technology and people to help drive efficiency, productivity, and growth. They are a great asset for the economy of Nuneaton, Warwickshire and the wider region,” he noted.
