UK based laser inspection specialist, Manchester Metrology, has reported huge growth in its metrology services following a significant £500,000 investment.
Since its inception in 2008 Manchester Metrology has become a market leader in the inspection of engineered components with a record turnover of £1.4m in 2014. As a result, the company has invested in new technology and equipment totalling over £200,000. This is in addition to the £300k invested in Faro's leading range of inspection equipment in 2014. This significant investment has enabled Manchester Metrology to offer an extensive range of equipment hire packages and on-site services.
Over the next three years Manchester Metrology aims to maintain sustainable growth and predicts a turnover of £3.4m by 2017. The company’s long term partnership with equipment supplier Faro will allow Manchester Metrology to stay ahead of the competition in providing the latest technology and training services.
Manchester Metrology’s extensive client base includes global machine manufacturer JCB, engineering giant Babcock and Quicksilver. More recently Manchester Metrology provided three employees to work alongside Rolls Royce in Derby following the win of a major £1.6bn contract.
Manchester Metrology has invested heavily in FARO inspection equipment.
The investment, means the company has been able to expand its workforce and create new opportunities in the local area with three new employees this year and the possibility of an apprenticeship scheme in the near future.
Paul Bulman, Managing Director commented: “We have employed staff from the local community and invested in training to provide opportunities for the younger generation to enhance their skill level and introduce them to new and exciting roles within the metrology sector. There is a definite shortage of skilled metrologists and we have taken it upon ourselves to invest in the right training to ensure our workforce has the knowledge and skill to represent the company and maintain our strong reputation.”
Since attending its first European trade show in Stuttgart last year, Manchester Metrology has secured several big contracts for measurement services in Portugal, Qatar, France and Norway.
