Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Finalist

We’re delighted to confirm CEL Group has been shortlisted as a Finalist for the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, 2023.

You can see for yourself in Shropshire Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Breaking news‘ CEL Group has been recognised in the ‘Excellence in Manufacturing & Engineering’ category.

Award-winning manufacturer

Being judged an award-winning manufacturer by Shropshire Chamber of Commerce recognises the outstanding supply chain services our amazing colleagues are delivering to UK OEMs every single day.

Simon Cartwright, CEL Group Managing Director, said, “As part of our award entry we asked our customers to tell us what they thought of our services and we were ‘bowled over’ with the wonderful things they said. It is one thing to have a vision of offering the best sub-contract manufacturing experience in China, but entirely another to hear from your customers that you’ve not only hit but exceed their expectations.

“I’m so proud of our amazing team, both here in the UK and in China!”

Quality engineering and reliable manufacturing

Quality engineering, reliable manufacturing and uniquely flexible supply chain services have underpinned CEL Group’s successful growth. And as a result the UK team extended its capability and capacity in 2022 by moving to its new UK HQ in Shropshire, supported by the European Regional Development Fund. Doubling warehouse capacity to 40,000 sq. ft and adding UK assembly to its sub-contract manufacturing offering.

Simon added, “In addition, to appreciating our people and partners we’d like to thank our customers. We’re honoured to work with some of the very best! CEL Group is focused on long-term partnerships. Mutually beneficial collaborations which deliver manufacturing competitive advantage to UK OEMs by approaching the off-shoring question very differently.

“We turn the often inevitable necessity of outsourcing into an advantage for everyone involved in the supply chain. Our customers brilliant testimonials tell our story far better than we can ourselves!”

Competitively priced quality parts

“CEL Group has always offered technical know-how and expertise during what has been an extensive period of product development, in sometimes challenging circumstances, despite which, the experience of working with them has always been a positive one.

“In addition to being competitively priced, and providing quality parts, their ability to bring in brand new operational processes has been fundamental in the ongoing development of both our products and our growing business relationship with CEL Group.”

On time, to specification and without defect

Head of Procurement, healthcare OEM

“CEL Group provides us multiple components of different complexities. They deliver on time, to specification and without defect. If any issues do arise, they are responsive, and their customer service is exceptional.

This will improve efficiencies in our warehouse and assembly lines. CEL Group is a pleasure to deal with. They are reliable and engaged.”

“We take pride in the quality of our products, and that’s why we are delighted to maintain a long-term trusted partnership with CEL Group.
