JJ Churchill wins business award

JJ Churchill wins business award

Sharing in Growth beneficiary JJ Churchill has won the 2019 Leicester Mercury Excellence in Manufacturing Award.

Family-owned precision engineering firm JJ Churchill of Leicestershire has secured more than £100 million in contracts, increased its headcount by 35% and its export forward order book from under £1 million to more than £37 million after five years on the Sharing in Growth productivity and competitiveness programme.

The Market Bosworth-based company was one of the first aerospace suppliers selected for Sharing in Growth in 2013 when its ambitions were to overcome risks caused by the oil crisis by expanding its aerospace export business.

Since then, with support from Sharing in Growth, it has redefined its strategy to focus on people, customers and new business development. As a result, JJ Churchill has increased turnover by almost 30% from 2015/16 and now has plans to hit more than £38 million and add around 20 new jobs by 2020. Consequently, the company has been able to make a £10 million investment in plant and equipment.

JJ Churchill is actively engaged in the most technologically demanding projects with advanced process control to deliver responsive lead-times – often working closely with designers to achieve their intent.  JJ Churchill has succeeded in this market by adopting the ‘best-in-class’ multi-axis milling, grinding, metrology equipment and addaptive machining in combination with a highly-skilled and motivated workforce – many of whom will have come through the company’s own apprenticeship scheme.
