Description

Hutchinson Engineering is a high quality supplier of laser cutting, folding, fabrication, kitting and design services, which uses state of the art 3D design software and the most modern laser technology available. It is part of the over-arching Hutchinson Group, which also comprises Hutchinson AeroTech – a leading sheet metal fabricator in the aerospace industry and H360 – a complete design and development consultancy that takes ideas from concept through to production.

Initially formed to serve the fabrication needs of the local agricultural community, Mark Hutchinson recognised the need to diversify and in 1999 Hutchinson Engineering invested in their first laser machine, and an Amada Beta was installed. Since then the company has invested in the latest flatbed laser technology right up to present day with a Trumpf fibre-delivered Tube Laser. In 2009 the first Tube Laser was installed which can cut Box, Pipe, Angle, and Channel, and offers customers a huge saving in terms of time and money.

Hutchinson Engineering is at the forefront of technology and has invested substantially in state of the art laser cutting, folding and welding machinery as well as relevant 2D and 3D CAD systems in order to maximise the hardware available. Operating from a 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art production facility in Kilrea, County Londonderry, Hutchinson Engineering offers customers of many differing sectors a complete engineering solution. As recent as 2015 the company invested nearly £4 million  with a view to continuing its year on year growth.

Mark’s talk will offer an insight into Hutchinson Group, specifically in relation to Hutchinson Engineering, covering the company’s expansion and diversification and the importance of innovation. There will also be a guided tour of the 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art production factory in Kilrea, County Londonderry.
