Record Breaking October for Subcon Laser!
October may have been a spooky month for some, but there is nothing frightening about our news, so let’s take a look at what went on this month at Subcon Laser!
It’s been our best October ever in terms of turnover, work quoted, work converted and orders received, and we’re really pleased with how the whole team has worked together to achieve these results. We take great pride in our company values so to see our hard work, dedication and professionalism come together this month has been extremely rewarding.
The installation of our latest 2 axis Trumpf laser system has enabled us to take precision and quality to the next level. With this technology we will be able to increase the quantity and improve the quality of all our products in an efficient manner. We are looking forward to using this laser system so be sure to keep an eye out for our future projects.
Not only are we pleased to install a new laser cutting system, we are also happy to announce an additional four jobs. We have created two new positions for laser machine operators, a programmer and a goods inwards person with further job creations going forward.
This month we were named the proud winners of the Achievement Award for Growth & Investment at the Made in the Midlands awards. All this investment has been rewarded with a very impressive increase in turnover, which is on course to increase by over £1 million in this financial year, alongside the creation of an additional nine jobs.
We also produced all the laser cut metal work for the world’s largest Liver Bird statue which is located at the new Liverpool Shopping Park. This was a fantastic project to be a part of and we were honoured to be involved in the creation of such an iconic and impressive model.
If that wasn’t enough, our General Manager, Tom Mongan, is entering his 25th year at Subcon. This is what Tom had to say as he reflected on this milestone:
‘As I am about to begin my 25th year at Subcon, and my 45th year being involved in manufacturing, there are a couple of things that spring to mind. Firstly, I cannot believe where the time has gone as it only seems like yesterday when I entered this incredible and fascinating world of engineering as a Technical Apprentice at Alvis Ltd in Coventry.
Secondly, is how far technology has advanced within my lifetime and how lucky enough I am to be working in the laser industry, which back in 1973 was considered to be the stuff of science fiction.
It has been an incredible journey and I have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people. What I would say to any young person is this: please consider a career in this great industry as it is truly rewarding. Just imagine having the ability and skill to think of, to design and to ultimately manufacture any object with the only limit being your own imagination.’
