ADS Laser Cutting to create new jobs following £1m investment
A Leicester-based medium-sized engineering business has invested £1m in new machinery, as it looks to extend its capabilities.
The investment will help ADS Laser Cutting continue its growth and in doing so create new jobs.
The new state-of-the-art metal laser cutting machine will cut thicker metal and maintain quality. The company, which is a premier metal laser cutting, folding, fabricating and finisher in the UK, said the investment will keep it ahead in its markets and enable the firm to expand its manufacturing capabilities.
Over the years, laser cutting metal has grown significantly as an industry and ADS’ approach to provide everything from bespoke one-off projects, like point of sale displays for some of the world’s major cosmetic companies, to volume projects like components for modular building balconies, means they can provide a complete solution for a range of customers.
Duncan Keates who started ADS Laser with his brother Stephen in 2005, said: “We have grown the business by listening to customers, supplying high-quality products and solutions backed by excellent customer experience, but above all employing great people.
“We have grown from a handful of us in 2005 to over 60 employees and this new laser cutter will propel us to over 70 next year.”
