Following a recent factory expansion in 2017, Orbital Fabrications Ltd now boasts a 30,000+ square feet state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire.
“Further expansions of the clean project build and CNC machine facilities have created more space enabling us to further improve our production efficiency and expand our customer offering,” quotes Ian Pearson, Chairman.
“With the Directors’ backing, we have invested significantly in new personnel, plant and equipment that will help to take the business to new levels of growth and – just as importantly – to deliver the service our customers both expect and deserve.”
With the robust growth in the Semiconductor Industry, Orbital Fabrications experienced a 30% grow in sales in 2018, a record achievement and expects to surpass this is 2019.
“We are very much looking forward to a busy 2019 and further increasing our sales with a new key strategy and extra key personnel” quotes Tim Kennett, Sales Manager.
Another important factor in Orbital Fabrications growth is its employee development – a key area of investment. It now has its own internal weld inspector qualified to Level 2 CSWIP and multiple internal electricians to carry out its electrical work.
Orbital also has a full apprenticeship scheme that is currently underway with another apprentice planned for 2019. In addition to the four new staff members who joined in 2018, it plans to recruit another four staff over the next 12 months.
2018 also saw Orbital Fabrications celebrate its 30th birthday. Since its inception in 1988 Orbital Fabrications has become one of the UK’s leading welding companies offering specialised orbital welding and high-tech fabrication to a variety of clients within the pharmaceutical, aerospace, chemical, semiconductor and allied industries, worldwide.
