'Economic climate has actually helped our business grow' ; CAD designers expanding as companies outsource work [Hull Daily Mail (England)]
(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) InShort Kingston CAD Solutions is enjoying a successful start to the year, with an expansion and the appointment of a new member of staff.
A MECHANICAL engineering and design company is thriving after an influx of large contracts.
Kingston CAD Solutions has relocated to a new office in Swanland that is four times the size of its previous home in Willerby.
Run by Lee Scott, the firm has worked with many blue-chip companies, specialising in the design of bespoke systems and products. It has worked on projects for clients including Morrisons, Nestle, KFC and Holiday Inn, with past work including designing an above-ground mine facility in the Ukraine, X-ray machinery for use in the food and security industries and a carbon fibre manufacturing facility in China.
Mr Scott has been operating Kingston CAD for the past six years and, with the relocation providing more space, it now has the scope to do more work.
Mr Scott said: "We get involved with anything that needs mechanical design.
"We've got a few really interesting projects on the horizon and I am going to see a couple of big companies and big names for really good partnerships."
A rocky economic climate usually does little to help businesses, but it has actually played a significant part in Kingston CAD's expansion.
Mr Scott said: "In the current economic climate, people are tending to outsource the sort of work we do because they can pick us up and put us down when they need to, rather than having overheads.
"So the economic climate has actually worked in our favour."
The firm uses 3D software systems to create and design new products and prototypes and oversees the design process through to manufacturing and the product hitting the market. Kingston CAD has also recently appointed a new design engineer, Dave Maxwell. Mr Scott said the appointment reflects the success of the business He said: "Dave's appointment has come at a time when we are handling a heavy workload and we want to deliver the best possible service.
"I plan to hire apprentices and more staff in the next 12 months, as the business continues to grow."
