News: Newburgh finds success in different sectors

By

Rotherham-based advanced manufacturer Newburgh Precision is seeing an increase in work from other areas following a downturn in the global oil & gas market - and has secured recent orders of £1m.

Established in the small Peak District village of Bradwell, Newburgh has grown into an internationally-renowned, award-winning business that specialises in manufacturing medium to large precision engineering components and assemblies.

Newburgh survived the harsh economic climate of the 1980s and under a new management team, the company created new customer-focused "cells" with dedicated groups of resources operated by a team of multi-skilled individuals that are committed to producing a product or products for one customer.

In 2004, a purpose built facility was constructed at Templeborough, Rotherham, which has since expanded to 135,000 sq ft of modern manufacturing space.

In its 75th year in 2014, Newburgh Engineering decided to split its two sites, Rotherham and Bradwell, into two separate businesses.

After an increased focus on the oil & gas sector in recent years, Newburgh Precision in Rotherham is seeing an increase in work for the wider power generation, defence, rail and aerospace sectors. The group has also recently invested in new water jet cutting capability to ensure a continued quality service across a broader range of materials.

As the target markets change at the business, changes are also being made to the board of directors. After ten years as business systems director and over 45 years with Newburgh, David Crookes is retiring and will be replaced by Matthew Jewitt who has 20 years with Newburgh in various roles from industrial engineer to sales director.

Other changes at board level include Lee Townsend being promoted from sales manager to sales director to work alongside operations director, Danny Gibbons.

David Greenan, managing director at Newburgh Precision, said: "The changes to the board at Newburgh Precision demonstrate our commitment towards a solid future and the development of our client base across a broader range of sectors. Each director brings a wealth of experience and expert knowledge to their new roles."

The changes are already having an impact. The MD recently tweeted: "Excited to have won orders worth over £1m in O&G, rail and power gen in the last month. Excellent quality, service and value wins every time!"

Lee Townsend, sales director at Newburgh Precision, added: "This is a good sign that the hard work we are putting in to win new work from new markets sectors is starting to pay off after the recent Oil & Gas price crash where we as many others were heavily dependent, we are actively looking into a number of new target sectors with a view of re-positioning ourselves as the UK's premier sub contractor."
