A UK based composite engineering firm Cecence has recently significantly invested in end-to-end composite processing and manufacturing machinery through Finance Birmingham’s Rail Supply Growth Fund.

“Clients increasingly are looking for a facility that can provide cutting and trimming in house and with the new equipment being commissioned over the next few months Cecence will be able to offer an increased end to end service to their customers with reliance on subcontractors reduced to almost zero,” said Humphrey Bunyan, Founder and Director of Cecence. 

Having already increased its footprint of its facility earlier this year to 24,000 sq ft comprising three units on the industrial estate, Cecence has been taking delivery of a further £300,000 of new machinery as part of its growth strategy.

The new equipment includes a five-axis CNC Machining Centre, a 3-metre by 1.5-metre flatbed twin daylight heated upstroking press, a 2.5-metre by 1.25-metre three-axis CNC table router, a prepreg machine and an autoclave. The company says it will enable Cecence to not only compete for bigger contracts, but also increase its production capacities, in turn creating more local jobs in addition to its already 23-member strong team.

Established in 2014, Cecence has grown in reputation, recently winning the composites world’s coveted JEC 2019 award for Innovation in Paris. The company’s main focus currently is to support the mass transportation industries of aerospace and rail, as well as the defence and competitive sports sectors, with advanced composite material supply, composite engineering know-how and technology transfer, as well as production capability for low, medium and higher volume requirements.

This tranche of investment is part of an ongoing growth strategy, and future plans include developing production lines in collaboration with other composite companies, with a focus on sustainability in materials and in the supply chain.
