About SSC Laser Cutting Bristol
SSC’s Bristol manufacturing facility opened its doors, in December 2014, just in time for Christmas and welcoming the New Year! Our Bristol division got off to a flying start, and within the space of just a couple of months, we began picking up clients in Wales!
SSC Bristol team
SSC’s Bristol division is comprised of eight team members, all looked after by Interim Team Leader, Mary Elcombe. The team of talented engineers and savvy sales guys include the likes of CAD Engineers, Harry Bull and Stuart Dawe – who bring to the plate a wealth of CAD experience. Bristol is also home to Production Manager Rob Keir and top Sales Estimators, Stuart Atkinson, Charlie Jones and Lauren Digweed-Brown. The region is also covered by Business Development Manager, Tim Ladham. Tim loves to go out to see new and existing clients and looking at all things laser cutting. He has a wealth of experience in British Manufacturing having worked in the industry for a boiler manufacturer and trailer manufacturer.
Where do we operate?
Our Bristol division currently provides precise laser and steel services across the South West of England and South Wales. The city borders the beautiful counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire, meaning we’re just a stone’s throw away from Cornwall, Devon and Wiltshire – and since we’re near the countryside, we’re in the perfect location for providing steel services to the agriculture industry!
Non-Ferrous Metal Cutting
In September 2018, SSC Laser Cutting changed how our Bristol Laser Cutting manufacturing facility operated. The Bristol facility is now purely a non-ferrous metal cutting site. This site now only cuts stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass, while all ferrous material (mild steel) will be cut at our HQ Stafford and our manufacturing facility in Derby.
With SSC Laser sites now solely dedicated to ferrous and non-ferrous materials, there is guaranteed to be no cross-contamination between materials during the cutting process which can happen when ferritic dust (dust particles from mild steel in the air or from the cutting process) gets ingrained into stainless steel and contaminates it causing it to rust.
