BCW Manufacturing to expand & create new jobs
Burnley-based subcontract manufacturer, BCW Manufacturing Group, has announced an expansion programme that is set to create new jobs.
Since its inception in 2002, BCW has developed bespoke automated lines, tooling, work holdings and mistake prevention systems, to provide value-added products to customers such as Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover in the automotive sector, GKN, Airbus and BAE Systems in the aerospace market plus a host of high-profile customers in the nuclear, oil & gas, power generation, mining, space and marine sectors.
To support growth plans, Secure Trust Bank has provided £5m funding to BCW, which will enable the company to expand its existing site with an 80,000 square foot development underway. The bolstered headquarters will see the creation of a dedicated state-of-the-art robotic machining facility, additional warehouse space and an additional offering within their treatments division.
With increased capacity to take on new business, the expanded headquarter is set to create up to 50 new jobs at BCW over the next three years.
Claire Whelan, Joint Managing Director at BCW, said: “We are delighted to be unveiling plans for this new advanced manufacturing facility as a result of securing new contracts of a substantial size with our prestigious customer base.
“To have won these new contracts against stiff global competition is a fantastic achievement and this expansion will be a major boost for BCW, for Burnley and the wider Lancashire economy, creating several new hi-tech jobs in the process.”
