Brandauer on Sky News
Brandauer manufactures electrodes used in 55% of all cars being sold – CEO Rowan Crozier talked to Ed Conway about why the Super Deduction Tax helped it invest in a new high-speed press to make this happen.
Birmingham-based precision presswork and stamping company Brandauer is heading to Northern Manufacturing and Electronics 2013 on a high after being announced as the winner of HSBC’s Midlands Regional Global Connections Award.
It marks the culmination of a successful twelve months that has seen it celebrate 150 years in business, host a Royal visit and increase sales in export markets including the US, China and South Africa.
The company, which employs 52 people, has also invested nearly £1m into state-of-the-art facilities, including a new laser marking capability and two new high-speed Bruderer presses.
Rowan Crozier, Sales and Marketing Director for Brandauer, commented:
“We are always looking at ways we can add value for our customers and this might be in speeding up processes, solving engineering problems or reducing cost by taking out some of the material content.
“Sustained investment in people and the best possible machinery is all part of this approach. The Bruderer BSTA 280-752B2 and BSTA 510-125B2 will help us produce a staggering 2 billion parts every year and could open up £2.5m in new sales.
“Importantly, it will also help us go after more tool transfer work as companies look to outsource problematic components.”
Brandauer, which is also a member of the award-winning Midlands Assembly Network, currently supplies high volume precision components to the automotive, building products, electronics, medical and renewables sectors.
The company will be exhibiting on 2nd – 3rd October 2013, stand F74 at Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2013.
