New complex a joint celebration
When tool makers Paul Jessup and Brent Greer began an engineering partnership in Wingate in 2002, they could not have envisaged their venture having 350 customers, 60 staff and long-term business relationships with global hardware supply companies.
Metco’s 5000 square metre complex in the Quadrant Square Business Park is being officially opened this week, and the celebrations will be for the entire team, many of whom joined Jessup and Brent in their early years.
‘‘We’ve been fortunate to have a loyal and dedicated workforce. That has enabled us to compete on the international market, a lot of which is with the major contract we have held since 2005,’’ Jessup said.
Metco is a manufacturing engineering company which is Greer said takes great pride in its on-site self-sufficiency.
‘‘We have made huge investment into laser cutting and folding technology so that we can fend off competitors in not only the office furniture, shelving and storage industries, but also in the areas of lighting componentry, fire safety, data centre equipment and the military.’’
