Burcas Ltd Celebrate 75 Years of Engineering Excellence

Burcas Ltd, a specialist precision engineering company based in Birmingham, are pleased to have recently celebrated their 75th Anniversary of trading.

Formed in 1941, Burcas provides high quality precision engineering services to a wide scope of traditional products, markets and customers, incorporating precision machining, precision tooling, paper cutting tools, inventory management and the supply of hard metal supplies.

Currently occupying 35,000 sq. ft. office and production floor space, the business is split into three separate operational units, which respectively specialise in CNC machining and grinding, knives and paper cutting, and tooling, cutting and Kanban.

Over the course of the last 12 months, Burcas have begun a redevelopment program of their site and facilities, improving the working environment not only for their customers, but also for their valued work force. In particular, a lean approach in manufacturing processes has been adopted to working practices throughout all three sites, which has contributed positively towards the company’s ambitions for growth. Furthermore, a reorganisation of operational management has also assisted in their recent redevelopment.

Mike Burrows, Managing Director of Burcas Ltd, commented: “We are delighted to have recently celebrated our 75th anniversary of trading. As a privately owned company, Burcas Ltd is now in a strong position to harness growth and profit return for the business. With fierce competition and declining markets in the traditional cutting tool and paper cutting tool industries, greater emphasis is now being placed upon marketing the specialist precision machining activity of the company into the nuclear and aerospace industries, amongst other specialist sectors.

“With significant growth projected in these specialist industries over the next decade, the Burcas team have developed a clear vision of where we want the business to go, concentrating on understanding the strategies and demands of our customers and markets, whilst aligning our resources and investments for future growth.

“This clear change of strategy provides an optimistic future for the business and all members of the company are ready to take up the challenge for the next stage in the growth of Burcas Ltd.”
