Life in the subcontract metalworking sector has never been easy. But as Kent-based Stevens & Carlotti has shown, investment in high capability CNC production technology can prove decisive in competing against low wage economies in Eastern Europe and Asia.
Established 40 years ago, Stevens & Carlotti has grown to become one of Kent’s largest sheet metal fabricating companies. It has occupied its present site in Sandwich for more than 10 years and, with 75 employees, provides a comprehensive array of cutting, punching, folding, machining, assembly and paint shop facilities.Its products range from simple brackets and assemblies – in up to 25 mm thick mild steel and 8 mm thick stainless steel – to complete control panels, fuel tanks and canopies for customers in industries as diverse as power generation, pump manufacture and aircraft ground support equipment.
“Our wide range of services has enabled us to establish a ‘complete job’ mentality, both with our customers and workforce,” says director Marco Carlotti. “We undertake virtually everything in-house to maintain greater control over quality and delivery lead times on our orders.”
