Convert showcases capability at Subcon after increasing turnover by 20%

 

Convert Ltd, the UK’s leading manufacturer of cable looms and harnesses, will be showcasing its capability at this year’s Subcon - the UK's premier subcontract manufacturing supply chain show - after increasing turnover by 20% last year to £1.5 million.

 

The Kent-based electrical engineering company, which saw a quarter of a million increase in turnover in 2016, is aiming even higher this year after investing in new machinery.

 

In November, the company bought a Komex Gamma 225 fully automatic crimping machine to help fulfil contracts for two of the world’s leading sports car manufacturers.   So impressed was Convert with the Komax’s small wire handling, it intends to buy another one – or even two more - in the not too distant future to further increase efficiency and boost capacity.

 

Dave Lord, Convert's managing director, said: "We’re really looking forward to Subcon.  This is our sixth year exhibiting at the show and we’ve got lots to celebrate after increasing our turnover last year.  The loyalty of our customers, skills and experience of our staff, and our high quality cable looms and harnesses are the key factors to our success.  Looking ahead, we’re hoping this year’s Subcon will bring us even more concreate leads so we can continue growing in 2017 and forge ahead with what we do best; which is to manufacture high quality cable looms and harnesses which meet customer specifications.”

 

The Kent-based company initially employed nine people when it was set up in 2006. It has grown significantly over the past decade and now employs 30 members of staff.

 

Operating predominantly in the automotive, public transport and scientific/medical sectors, Convert manufactures cable harnesses for car head and rear lights, passenger gates at railway stations and a range of scientific equipment.  It boasts some top industry names amongst its customers such as Wipac, Bibby Scientific Ltd, GKN Hybrid Power, Cubic Transportation and OEM Automatic Ltd, as well as leading luxury and sports car manufacturers. 

 

Visit Convert on stand D11 at Subcon between 6-8 June at NEC, Birmingham.
