A Barugh Green laser company has experienced record growth sales despite the turbulent economic climate.
Cutting Technologies, which laser cuts and engraves a wide range of materials, has revealed its turnover has increased by 20 per cent in the first half of the year.
Jane Robinson, co-founder of the firm, said turnover for the current financial year is expected to top £3m, up from £2.6m.
She said: “Our growth figures for this year are already surpassing our expectations.
“We’ve made considerable investment in marketing in the last few months and it’s great to see that investment is already beginning to pay off.”
Jane said the company had received finance which allowed it to buy two new, state-of-the-art lasers last year. “They have opened up new markets for us and we are seeing substantial increases in our design-led, decorative work.
“While we are obviously delighted with our current growth levels, our committed and hardworking team is determined not to sit back but to build on our current success.”
Cutting Technologies was founded in 2003 and employs 28 people and has more than 500 clients world-wide.
Last month, the firm played a key part in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations by cutting parts for the jubilee beacons. Earlier this year, it cut a highly decorative screen for an ambassadorial residence in Israel.
