As the UK sees a return in work from offshore, due to UK manufacturers becoming more competitive, we all find ourselves with more opportunities for growth.
So, our team went into the UK marketplace to see if a supplier could meet our target price and quality standards. After an exhaustive search, many meetings, we found Copsey engineering, would you believe only 31 miles away from us.
On placing our first order, just under one hundred thousand pounds, then receiving our first parts that passed through our inspection department with flying colours, we are now at the start of a new partnership with a UK supplier.
Who says that the UK cannot compete on price? We, along with Copsey prove that with the right lean initiatives, right investment, you can buy British.
I am overdue sending Mick/Steve in the workshop a huge thankyou for having the time and patience to help with such an important part for Rega. The time and patience they have dedicated to the job really is priceless we quite simply wouldn't have been able to do this without you.
Please pass on our utmost gratitude to the guys they have been part of what we think is a first in the world within our industry.
