Fast growing sub-contract engineering company PCT has doubled production capacity at its Sheffield base following a strong start to 2017.
PCT has introduced double shifts to cope with strong regional demand for its sub-contract engineering services.
The family-run business, which operates across three sites in Holbrook, Sheffield, has recently invested more than £550,000 in new machinery to underpin growth.
“We are seeing strong growth which is being driven by the regional economy,” said managing director James Harding-Terry.
“A large proportion of new business is coming from Yorkshire companies which is particularly pleasing and bodes well for regional manufacturing and engineering.”
PCT, which celebrated its 90th anniversary last year, manufactures up to 50,000 tow-bars each year.
It also fabricates on a sub-contract basis for customers creating everything from tarmac mixers to generator frames.
“We’ve moved to a double shift pattern and have recruited new operatives and sales staff in the first quarter of this year,” added James who plans to scale up the £6m turnover business.
“We’re keen to continue growing and our new Bystronic fibre laser is already having an enormous impact on productivity and quality. These are exciting times at PCT.”
