- Manufacturing in China & UK
29th Jun '23
CEL Group has loved celebrating our finalist nomination for the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Manufacturing and Engineering Award.
It’s an especially important accolade to achieve in our 20th year. Earnt by customer responsiveness and manufacturing experience of the whole team.
This why we took all our UK team (who could make the date) to the Awards ceremony on 23rd June 2023.
We’re hoping that next year some of our colleagues from China, CEL Ningbo and CEL Shenzhen can join CEL UK. Then together CEL Group can lift the trophy!
One of the major influences on our manufacturing award nomination was the feedback from our customers.
When we asked for some testimonials little did we expect the amazing feedback we received. It speaks volumes about the supply chain support we give our manufacturing customers.

CEL Group has always been an innovative supply chain business. Quality manufacturing in China is a great way to stay competitive, if you get it right.
We all know outsourcing some manufacturing processes is inevitable,. And, with CEL Group you can benefit from low cost manufacturing without losing UK control.
CEL Group provides flexible sub-contract manufacturing services which are truly unique.
We say low cost manufacturing because that’s often where the conversation starts. But in fact what we’re aiming for is cost competitive solutions which work for the long term. CEL doesn’t compromise on quality or long-term sustainability to achieve an unrealistic price point.
We strive for excellence in manufacturing and engineering by investing time and experience in optimising the subcontract manufacturing process. And achieve it by employing experienced engineers at both our new purpose-built UK headquarters and on the ground in South China – supporting CEL Ningbo and CEL Shenzhen.
Quality audited and collaborative engineering is at the heart of this and why we’ve been selected as a 2023 finalist for the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce ‘Excellence in Manufacturing and Engineering’ award.
We’ve been helping UK Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) compete and grow for over 20 years. We’re a Shropshire based company, governed by UK laws with direct employees on the ground in China, minimising supply chain risks.
ISO 9001:2015 accredited, UK and China, it meets customer statutory and regulatory requirements. ISO14001 and BS13485, in plan for 2024.
Promising the best experience of sub-contract manufacturing in China, its first employee, now CEL Group’s Managing Director – Simon Cartwright, has grown the engineering and manufacturing expertise of the business from supplying turned-parts and simple metal parts to offering complete assemblies and box-builds. These can be despatched as Freight on Board (FOB at China port) or to a UK port, or to customers’ production lines or distribution channels, as needed.
