Customer Since: 2015
In 2015, Jenks & Cattell Engineering secured a new customer within the engine industry, which is our second OEM engine manufacturer customer within our portfolio, and in turn, increased our annual turnover to £12m, with plans of growth.
The customer was already having a large selection of parts manufactured in the UK, however Jenks & Cattell Engineering offered excellent engineering support which included a reccomendation of different methods of sheet metal manufacturing and handling in order to reduce the piece part cost, and save the customer a substantional amount of expenditure.
Jenks & Cattell Engineering were chosen as a resource supplier, and the customer invested in moving existing tools from one supplier to our factory, all of which were developed in house and fitted into our existing presses and capacity plans.
The customer also invested over £2m in new tooling, which Jenks & Cattell Engineering sourced and supported on their behalf.
To secure this business, Jenks & Cattell, self-funded 4 new robot welders, which are dedicated in supplying one customer, as well as general investment in the factory including a customer specificed assembly and inspection area. This investment added a string to our bow, now being able to efficiently weld stainless steel, and also we are able to offer all of our customers increased capacity as we have generated a workload to cover 2 shifts, with our working hours being 6am-10pm.
