Midlands firms collaborate to win six-figure dealCube Precision Engineering and Salop Design & Engineering have agreed to collaborate in the field of automotive tooling, after the latter won a six-figure contract.

The aim of the alliance is to incorporate the technical expertise of both companies into the planning and design and commissioning of the project to tight timescales.

Cube (www.cubeprecision.com) has extensive experience in automotive tooling and the design and manufacture of press tools, while Salop as a leading European supplier in the metal pressing and assembly manufacturing sector.

Chris Greenough, commercial director of Salop (www.salopdesign.co.uk), said: “We have been looking to work with Cube for a while, and this six-figure deal will bring together both companies’ expertise. The project is under way, and this will be the first of many such collaborations.”

Neil Clifton, managing Director of Cube, added: “This project involves manufacturing tooling to produce parts that are already in existence; by reverse-engineering the current stock items, we can make new tooling that will achieve the current part tolerances.

"By working together, we will provide our customers with expanded engineering expertise, while showcasing our capacity, capability and confidence to produce tooling that can withstand the demands that are put upon automotive tooling over time.”­
