18/11/14 – During the chamber visit on M-TEC’s Stephen Hanson and Ashley Crump met with Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce president Peter Burns and Partnership manager Angela Tellyn to discuss M-TEC’s rise to popularity over the past 4 years as well as their development plans for the future.
Also discussed was the continued expansion of the business and its ongoing commitment to creating new and exciting development pathways for young people to enter the engineering industry.
Burns said the opportunity to visit a forward-thinking company was very welcome.
“It was great to visit M-TEC and find out all about the way they have taken it upon themselves to find their own solution to the skills gap that everybody talks about,” he said.
“They have gone above and beyond their own responsibility to developing more skilled workers for the industry in the region, and we feel it is something that could yet become an even bigger success story.”
M-Tec Group, based at Siskin Drive in the city, utilises state-of-the-art software to design and develop automotive interiors and exteriors, and since being established in 2011, has developed a standalone turnover of approximately £7million per year.
The business now boasts 75 staff and has ambitions to double its turnover by the end of 2016.
