Growth Through Adversity for Gloucestershire Engineering Firm

By: Stratos Precision Engineering
GLOUCESTER, U.K. - Aug. 3, 2021 - PRLog -- Following a period of impressive growth through an uncertain climate, manufacturing business Stratos Precision Engineering Ltd are celebrating a number of achievements as the go-to plastic and aluminium CNC machining UK specialists.

The Gloucester-based company, has seen considerable growth through a time of global uncertainty. With two awards as a result of work with the Rolls Royce Consortium led VentilatorChallengeUK, Stratos played a key part in business growth through adversity.

Despite challenges, Stratos remained operational, and is seeing significant growth prompting key organisational developments to further propel the business and contribute to economy expansion.

One of the company's founders and Managing Director, Jon Caple, explained,

"The last 18 months hasn't been without its challenges, but we're fortunate to have worked through the pandemic and have customers understand our commitments as key workers. As businesses began to reopen, it became clear that we needed to expand and diversify to keep on track with our ambitious plans.

We've now invested over £200,000 into additional machinery, staff, infrastructure and software to galvanise and future-proof the business."

Stratos has made a number of strategic investments since incorporation, the latest includes a 1000+ sqft mezzanine factory floor making space for new top-of-the-range machinery. A second Citizen L32 CNC Sliding Head machine enables 7-axis precision machining from Ø3mm – Ø25mm, and a new Coordinate Measuring Machine, the Aberlink Axiom Too CMM, gives accurate 3D measurement; perfect for quality-critical parts. A new laser engraving machine with Lightburn® technology also opens up new routes to market, helping Stratos to keep up with the growing demand for plastic and metal machined components in a range of industries.

Jon added "These investments will allow Stratos to support national manufacturing businesses. With additional space and new ERP system, Emax, in place, we're in a position to position to offer customer stock-holding via blanket/call-off orders, enabling them to receive components on a next day basis whilst not having to hold stock themselves. Customers can now save money by not having capital tied up in stock inventory. They also benefit through cost reduction by ordering in bulk. This is key for fast-paced industries where timing is critical."

This period of uncertainty has been challenging for many businesses, but as we emerge from the wave of the global pandemic, it's time to focus on recovery and economic growth.

Stratos Precision Engineering (  is the UK's plastic and aluminium CNC machining specialist, and strives to be the first choice for CNC milling, turning, routing, sliding head, and laser components.
