Contact Attachments, based in Newtown, Mid Wales, is celebrating its 40th birthday this month with a number of new orders for clients from across the globe, and is also marking reaching its target for export sales with a huge 10% of the firm’s products now shipped to as far flung and unusual places as Antarctica, Vietnam, the Middle East, Congo, and the Falkland Islands.

And the company, which is renowned for its ability to create one-offs and ‘specials’ to match its clients’ exact requirements, has celebrated its special anniversary by investing significantly in a brand new, state-of-the-art laser cutting machine which will help it continue to design and create bespoke solutions to meet every need.

“We’re thrilled to have reached such a momentous anniversary” explained Des Phillips, General Manager of Contact Attachments. “Not only has the firm seen off two recessions and plenty of downturns and changes in the market, but through all of this time we’ve maintained our commitment to our team and our investment in our plant, our suppliers, and our products, and our strength and success now is absolutely testament to the vision of our Directors and the efforts of the whole team.”

First launched in Kent, Contact Attachments chose to move to Mid Wales 35 years ago and was the first engineering firm in the country to achieve BS5750, now known as ISO9001. This commitment to excellence is once again in evidence with the company recently signing up to work towards ISO 14001 in 2014, as part of a move which they see as important to their ongoing growth. “We chose to lead the way with the ISO9001 quality standard” explained Des, “because quality is at the heart of everything that we do, and we want to demonstrate the same commitment with ISO14001 as we know how important environmental and sustainability issues are to our customers – now and in the future.”
