This Manufacturing Roundtable event was held at Salop Design and Engineering in Shrewsbury, they are metal work manufacturer specialising in pressing, coating and fabrication. The roundtable hosted a variety of manufacturers, each given an opportunity to speak discuss some interesting topics related to the sector. It was hosted by Will Stirling of Stirling Media ltd, a regular client of mine with a keen interest in the manufacturing sector. Before the discussion we went on a workshop tour, where we were shown the facilities and machining capability that Salop has. Their metal presses were impressive machines, as tall as a small house and able to work at an incredible rate. They also had areas for general fabrication and coating, including a state of the art powder coating machine. Capturing all of this was a lot of fun, I only wish I’d had more time to photograph their incredible factory.
