Four Chesterfield-based manufacturing companies have been rebranded, following a major integration with their parent company.
Cooper Brown Enterprises Ltd (CBE Ltd) — the parent company of BG Engineering, NiTEC, Pentag Gears and Spire Laboratories — will now be known as CBE+ (www.cbeplus.com
), with the individual divisions rebranded as CBE+ Precision, CBE+ Electroless Nickel, CBE+ Gears, and CBE+ Laboratories.
To mark the rebrand and showcase the divisions’ capabilities to customers and business contacts, CBE+ recently held an Open Day that was attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield, plus more than 75 delegates from the aerospace, defence and general manufacturing sectors.
Group CEO Marie Cooper said: “Since becoming accredited to AS9100 for our precision engineering business, we have experienced strong demand from customers for other services within the group.
“We recognised the benefits of having a single brand, so we can more easily demonstrate the complementary capabilities that we can offer to the supply chain.
"Our aim is to become a multi-disciplinary supplier to many industries, including the aerospace and defence, energy and renewables sectors.
"The Open Day also gave us the opportunity to reveal our ‘vision for the future’, while enabling delegates to see the investment we have made here.
“We have moved our manufacturing businesses onto one site at Enterprise Drive in Holmewood, and this has meant a significant investment in acquiring equipment and technology, refurbishing the manufacturing facility offices and conference room, and building a brand new laboratory for testing, validation and certification for the plating industry.
“We are also investing in a new aerospace plating line, which we expect to be completed by the end of 2019.”
