Yan Tiefenbrun – Operations Director, Castle Precision Engineering Ltd will be presenting at the Open Briefing Event in Preston. Castle will share what it means to them to be part of Sharing in Growth, and the learning/skills they are developing as part of the programme.
“Our operating environment and aspirations mean that our only route to growth is to move higher value, offering more capability and productivity. As a UK Manufacturer of the Year we pride ourselves in offering this level of service and expertise but equally as an SME we recognise our resource constraints as the limiting factor to realising our full growth potential at this time.
What Sharing in Growth is offering is a targeted and ambitious vehicle to take UK companies on an accelerated journey to process and business excellence. To have the training and support that is being presented delivered onsite on real applications minimises further impact on our resources whilst maximising the benefit of the training, and spreads key skills through the organisation to deal with traditional bottlenecks.
The key difference between this improvement programme and others such as the SC21 initiative is the direct link between increased competitiveness and major sourcing decisions. It is that link combined with joint strategy delivery between customer and supplier that will deliver significant growth and a route for the UK supply chain to regain its market share in UK aero engine business.
I can only hope that in the development of companies like Castle as ever more capable global suppliers, that our customer will experience as much benefit from this programme as we will. We look forward to continuing this level of partnership and engagement for the mutual benefit of both companies and the wider economic and engineering environment.”
