Founder Member rejoins Made in Group
Leading press tool makers and sub contract machinists Cube Precision Engineering have re-joined Made in Group to reconnect with Midlands manufacturers and gain the opportunity to have a 3D scan created of their facility in Rowley Regis. The firm believes that when they joined back in 2009, it helped them to establish themselves within the industry.
Also founded in 2009, Cube Precision Engineering was started by Phil Bannister and Neil Clifton. The company has a strong ethos of supporting both the local area and the UK as a whole, using local suppliers and staff to service the world’s leading engineering companies. 71% of all purchases made by the business are from within 40 miles of the West Midlands factory, a majority of their staff are recruited within 15 miles of the factory and the products they make are used worldwide.
Made in Group, consisting of Made in the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire, is a trade association championing British industry and encouraging the UK manufacturing sector to connect and work together. An ethos closely interlinked with Cube, the re-introduction of the company to the community is extremely fitting.
Since Cube were originally members of the group, Made in the Midlands has evolved into a digitally advanced online platform that offers a comprehensive microsite for maximum exposure. All member microsites are linked to the Made in the Midlands domain which is first on Google for Midlands manufacturing.
The organisation now also offers Gold and Silver members the opportunity to have a 3D scan taken of their manufacturing facility, offering customers remote visibility of a company's capacity and capabilities. Neil Clifton, Director at Cube said:
“Cube has rejoined the Made in Group to further engage with the Midlands manufacturing sector, since we left there have been a number of high profile new members which we believe can benefit from our capacity and experience. The chance to have a 3D scan of our facility is also invaluable as it opens our factory up online and physically shows people the size of the facilities we have. We make some very exciting parts here and it will be great to share it more with the world.”
