Our team have been working together for many years and at our core, Subcon Laser is a family business. Over the years, we have collected many awards that recognise our achievements, but some have stuck with us for a long time.
One award we were particularly proud to win was the highly prestigious Best Subcontractor at the International Subcontracting Industry awards in 1996. It may be 21 years ago now, but this gala dinner and presentation night at the NEC in Birmingham is still a great moment in the history of Subcon Laser.
Our managing director, Bill Brown, pictured on the right, collected the award on behalf of the whole team.
The event took place during the joint MACH and SUBCON exhibitions and we have supported and exhibited at most of the SUBCON exhibitions every year since.
Subcon’s General Manager, Tom Mongan, remembers the truly special night well.
‘There is no feeling quite like hearing your company’s name announced as the winner. The excitement, the build-up, the heart-in-the-mouth moment when they announce, “and the winner is…”
‘It is a really proud moment for any company to be recognised by an independent panel of judges, and especially in recognition for all the members of staff who, day in day out, put the care and attention into producing a quality product.’
The Best Subcontractor award may not have been our first award (we won that in 1993), but it stays with us because it recognised that our staff provide an outstanding service – an ethos we hold close to this day. And we are proud to say that we have won every award we have entered since!
