Have your say

Laser cutting and engraving specialist Cutting Technologies has invested £150,000 in increasing its production capabilities with backing from the Royal Bank of Scotland’s asset finance arm, Lombard.

The Barnsley firm has invested in a new laser that is one of the few in the UK that can process material up to three metres long by just over two metres wide

Managing director Martin Cook said: “Since the business was formed we have made regular investments to our production facilities in order to remain competitive.

“An essential part of our future growth strategy is to have the most modern equipment on site. This latest investment ensures that we can continue to quickly respond to the needs of both existing and new customers.”

The new laser will enable the Zenith Park firm to target new business, particularly in the architectural and design markets, where demand for its services is growing. The firm, which employs 28 staff, also works for the fabrication, precision engineering, retail, interiors, food and pharmaceuticals sectors, cutting materials that include steel, aluminium, wood, plastics, rubber, paper and card.

Arif Munir, from Lombard, said: “Cutting Technologies is a well-run business that is always looking to improve its performance by investing in new technology.
