News: SLP continues to grow at the cutting edge


Rotherham-based Specialised Laser Products (SLP), has moved to continental shift pattern and taken on more staff after experiencing a soaring market demand for its laser cutting services.

Working across a wide range of sectors, the firm uses ultra-precise methods to laser cut steel and aluminium sheet metal with the finest degree of accuracy at its premises on the edge of Rotherham town centre.

Following significant investment in new Bystronic laser cutting equipment and a marked upturn in the demand for laser cut steel and aluminium for industrial applications, the family-run business has moved to a continental shift pattern and now operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Founded in 1995 to initially support the machine knife industry, SLP's customers now include all types and sizes of business from individuals to multi-nationals, and work ranges from cash machines and industrial catering equipment to carrot toppers and sword blanks.

SLP recognised that in order to grow the business and ultimately increase turnover, a fundamental operational change was required. The European 12 hour shift pattern, operating four, three man shifts allows the specialists to operate 24/7, increasing the throughput whilst maintaining the quality of cut required by their clients.

This has been further supported with the acquisition of new plant and equipment, including a third fork lift truck and a new 1.3 tonne flatbed vehicle. To ensure fast turnaround, SLP also have large stocks of sheet metal including mild steels, stainless steels, spring steels and tool steels.

The extra capacity also allows the company to compete on much larger jobs within the industry and still achieve the demanding lead times. The local job market has also benefited, with extra staff being employed to deal with the increased deliveries of sheet metal and the increased dispatch of the finished laser cut products.
