Ladbrook wins key contract in automotive sector
Norfolk based pressed metal specialist, Ladbrook Engineering has won a contract to manufacture pressed metal parts for SCL, an important supplier to the global automotive sector.
The parts will be significant components within a sport carrier design for a very well known prestige car.
Ladbrook, based in North Walsham, has won both the order for the initial tooling and future production. Using a technique called ‘progression pressing,’ Ladbrook is able to press complex three-dimensional shapes at high speed and to a high quality, using automated machines.
Mike Blowers of Ladbrook said: “Ladbrook is 70 years old this year, so it’s very pleasing to know that we can still compete successfully for this type of business.”
SCL, based in Wellingborough has supplied car manufacturers such as Vauxhall Motors, OPEL, Saturn (GM USA), Lotus, Toyota, Volvo and Land Rover.
