One of Yorkshire’s fastest growing manufacturers celebrated its most successful November ever after securing four major industry awards and its biggest ever contract.
Lambert, a leading provider of automation systems, equipment engineering and precision components, claimed the prestigious ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ title at the recent TMMX Awards hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
It came on the same day that the company announced the best 24-hours of sales in its 42-year history, with £9m of new business agreed.
“I don’t think we’ll ever have another day like it,” explained Matthew Cox, Sales Director at Lambert.
“To gain one TMMX Award is an achievement, but to walk away with three titles and the main ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ award has surpassed our wildest dreams.”
“2015 has been a significant year of growth for Lambert, with our determination to bring the next technology step change to market helping us land a number of new business partnerships.”
The recent £9m order success will be delivered over the next 18 months and involves a new modular manufacturing platform for medical devices that will eventually be installed in Europe and South America.
This work gives the company a fantastic foundation to achieve its ambitious plans to turnover £28m by the end of 2016, an ambition that will require another 25 staff, including four apprentices.
“Automation is such a popular topic at the moment, with even the emerging countries looking at how they can take labour out of the equation to improve productivity,” explained Warren Limbert, Managing Director.
“A lot of our work is to strategically help our customers and their production lines work smarter by developing highly innovative, affordable automation solutions.”
He continued: “Working with some of our key supply partners, we have developed technologies that truly differentiate our customers, elevate them beyond their competition and help make them Number 1 in their respective marketplaces.
“2015 was a major milestone in our development as a business and marks the start of our 5-year strategy to increase turnover by 90% by 2020.”
Lambert, which currently employs 185 people, exports nearly 85% of its sales to more than 25 countries across the world.
