Growth at Stevens & Carlotti

Family-owned Stevens & Carlotti is a leading sub-contractor supplying metal fabrications to a wide range of industries from its 64,000 ft2 facility in Sandwich, Kent.

These fabrications, which can be anything from a simple bracket to fully-assembled and tested machines, are supplied to customers in the power generation, oil & gas, and yellow goods sectors, among others.

From Sketch to Finished Part

When not busy running Carlisle-based Complete Engineering Services, co-founders and joint managing directors, Alan Walker and Andrew Monkhouse enjoy their motorcycles, in particular road racing. This passion has seen them work with several riders to develop their race bikes and, in 2018 to celebrate Complete Engineering Service’s 20th anniversary they sponsored the race helmets of WNT Burman Racing’s Sam Burman.

Passion and Precision

Teixidó has been specialising in the mass production of precision parts since it was founded in 1952. Based in Catalonia, the bar turning company is the largest of its kind in Spain.

Teixidó operates in the automotive, pneumatic, equipment and aeronautics industries. The bulk of its production covers diameters from 0.5 to 20mm. As Spanish group sales director Xavier Teixidó Pont explains: “Many bar turners are capable of producing these diameters, but what distinguishes us from our competitors is our ability to adapt to the tightest tolerances. Our 13,500m2 production facilities and the diverse technologies we use in our company enable us to respond rapidly to varying demand from our customers.”

Right First Time

Holmfirth-based sheet metal design and engineering specialists, Allsops Ltd, has progressed from CO2 to fibre laser cutting, resulting in significant financial savings.

Software for laser cutting and bending produces ‘right first time’ parts .Mild steel from 1.2 to 3 mm thick is mainly processed and for these gauges - even up to 6 mm - the production output from each of two Bystronic fibre laser machines is at least three times that of the previous CO2 models they replaced, added to which running costs are much lower.
