We have just completed a significant new investment in equipment. Five additional welders will be supplied in the near future from Miyachi Unitek. It is recognised that these welders are the very best in metal joining technology. They will provide us with increased power for certain projects and a dramatic increase in control and consistency of weld joints. With air powered heads and sophisticated DC controllers, the Miyachi equipment represents a dramatic step forward for Creasefield towards its goal of becomming the best Battery Pack Manufacturer in the UK.
We’re delighted to welcome Mark Andrew and Lee Hill onto the Board of Directors here at Creasefield. They both join Managing Director, Jason Holt, on the Board, to contribute to the strategic growth and development of the business. Lee Hill, who has been with the business for a significant period, takes on the role of Operations Director.
A stickler for the detail, with well over a decade of manufacturing and production operations achievements, his focus will be on strategic, continuous improvement of our production and supply chain. Mark Andrew, a more recent member of the team, but one who has made an impact, is appointed to Engineering Director.
With a background of technical expertise in aerospace, electronics and IT, straight talking Mark will be ensuring our products’ technical capabilities are continually developed and that quality standards are exceeded. We wish them every success in their Directorships with the Company.
30 years is a long time for a business to operate successfully and profitably and we’re proud of how Creasefield Ltd has developed over that time. Established in 1982 with our roots in sheet metal production, we’re now a market leader in the supply of standard, custom and bespoke battery packs and cells. Currently operating from a large multi-unit facility of approximately. 14,000 sq ft in Somerset our teams include production, quality inspection, stores and office units. Whilst 2012 sees us celebrate our 30th birthday, we like to think we’re 30 years young! And with the appointment of 2 new Directors to our Board, a continued focus on outstanding customer relations and investment in innovative new technologies, we intend to be celebrating our 60th in style!
Here at Creasefield, customer relations are, without question, a key priority for us. So much so we have invested in a pivotal role in Field Sales. David Blenkinsop joins us, as a Field Sales Exec with a proven track record in technical sales and outstanding customer relations. Not only will his focus be on business development and product promotion, David will be driving our priority to continue to maintain excellent customer relations with all of our existing clients. We are delighted to have David on board with us and he’ll no doubt prove to be a significantly valuable member of our operational team.
