Precision laser cutting specialists FC Laser have achieved a record monthly turnover of £500,000.
This follows the recent announcements of a record year that saw the company’s sales grow by 30% over 12 months and customer activity increase by 20% in a single month.
As a result of this increased turnover and activity, the company is moving to larger and more eco-friendly premises by the end of this year so that it can continue to meet customer demand for its services.
The expansion and the move will also generate a significant recruitment drive which is expected to see FC Laser take on up to nine new members of staff.
FC Laser’s General Manager Steve Connolly commented: “Achieving a turnover over £500,000 in a single month is quite simply phenomenal but it is no surprise to us because we have worked tirelessly over the years to satisfy customer demand and to generate new business.
“So much of this growth and success is down to the company’s ethos on how it treats its customers and how it supports its employees, who can pat themselves on the back for reaching this incredible milestone.”
FC Laser’s Managing Director Danny Fantom adds: “The most advanced machines in the laser cutting sector, the best customer service in the industry, total dedication to quality from initial consultation through manufacturing to delivery – these are the reasons we are going from strength to strength.
“The new factory will enable us to go even further, satisfying current customers and taking on new business, and we can’t wait to get started.”
FC Laser’s new 20,000 sq ft factory is expected to be up and running by the end of 2017 and an open day will be held in June 2018 on the occasion of the company’s sixth anniversary.
