Contracts Engineering has expanded into an additional 2,500 ft² of factory and office space to support our continued growth, bringing our total space to 11,500 ft². Our new space adds to our existing capacity and provides us with modern offices better suited to meet our customers' increasing requirements. Please come and visit our new facilities!
We are pleased to announce that Contracts Engineering Ltd. employees Jason Birch and Carl Clemans have moved into Project Management roles and Craig Pagett into a Junior Project Manager role. These changes allow CEL to better serve our customers as Jason, Carl and Craig will become even more familiar with our customer requirements. Furthermore, this allows CEL to continue delivering our high quality standards, while also spending more time supporting increased value-engineering efforts.
Contracts Engineering Ltd are delighted to have been awarded £93,537 in TIGER Loan funding from Kent County Council. The loan was granted towards the purchase of a new LVD 1212 turret punch, replacing CELs older STRIPPIT model. As part of CEL's investment we increased our tool library, training, hired new staff and licensed modern, advanced CAD/CAM software for the new machine.
Contracts Engineering Ltd. is delighted to announce moving to operating a two shift day as of 3rd June 2013. The factory now operates from 6:00am until 10:30pm 5 days a week. Office hours remain from 7:30am to 4:00pm (3:00pm on Fridays), though someone is often in the office later each evening. The longer operating hours allow us to more efficiently use our plant and equipment to better serve your manufacturing requirements, and is in response to an increase in demand we have seen for our services.
After 23 years of running Contracts Engineering Ltd., founders Paul Smith and Roger Higham are looking forward to enjoying their retirement. CEL is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Troy Barratt as the Company's new majority owner and Director. Troy has worked closely over the past several months with Paul, Roger and General Manager Martin Charles to ensure a smooth transition and looks forward to building on the successful business built by Paul and Roger.
