Excellence in Manufacturing and Engineering, Chamber of Commerce Business Award

Simon Cartwright, CEL Group Managing Director, explains “We’re thrilled that CEL Group has been judged as an award winning manufacturer by the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce. It’s testament to our engineering experience, great team work and commitment to continuous improvement. We’re focused on delivering the best possible service to UK manufacturers, every single day.”

He adds, “In the last two years alone CEL Group has grown its capacity and capability. We’ve moved into a newly developed 40,000 sq. ft HQ, as well as investing in six robotic welders in CEL Ningbo – to name just a couple of the changes.

“We’ll keep investing in delivering the best subcontract manufacturing experience,” confirms Dave Alsop, CEL Group Finance Director. “This gives OEMS more manufacturing competitive advantage with us. For example, to deliver more services our UK workforce has grown by a third in the last four years, now offering UK assembly, in addition to UK stockholding, as well as low-cost manufacturing in China.”

Subcontract Manufacturing with a Great Customer Experience

“One of our Unique Selling Points is definitely how much we care about our customer experience,” says Ryan Clark, CEL Group Engineering & Quality Director. “As part of the award process we had the chance to share some of their positive feedback with the judges. We trust its made it’s mark on them, as it did on us. Positive affirmation from your customers makes the hard work all worthwhile.”

We offer the reliability of dealing with a very experienced engineering team (UK and China), with customer support and logistics all managed from our UK HQ. This gives, our customers can access quality assured cost-competitive manufacturing from the world’s leading manufacturing country”.

He adds, “We’re still trailblazing when it comes to unmatched subcontract management services. This year we’ll have 21 years, under our belt, alongside important environmental and quality accreditations; ISO14001:2015 and ISO9001:2015.
