Leading local engraver, Brunel Engraving, celebrates thirty years in business

Brunel Engraving, a successful specialist engraving company, celebrates 30 years in business this year.

The local company which first started up in small offices next door to the Curzon cinema in Clevedon back in 1989 has grown over the years to become one of the largest and most successful specialist engraving businesses in the UK handling national and international clients across a wide sector of industries.

Today Brunel’s commercial headquarter, where 30 local staff are employed, is based at Britannia Way in Clevedon. Last year the company undertook an extensive refit and expansion to increase workshop space by 25 per cent. A new mezzanine level was created within the premises and the interior of the building was opened out to improve working facilities for staff and to accommodate new technologically advanced engraving equipment.

Brunel prides itself on its workforce of skilled engravers and has established a specialised two year apprentice training course for young people in conjunction with City of Bristol College.

In 2018 Brunel also achieved the latest industry standard ISO 9001 2015 accreditation which enables it to do business with companies in specific industrial and commercial sectors where this is considered essential.

“We have now been in the engraving business for 30 years”, said founder and managing director, Martyn Wright, who attributes the company’s success to hard work, dedication to customer care, and investment in cutting edge technology.

“We are very proud to have achieved this landmark and to have successfully developed Brunel Engraving into one of the country’s leading commercial and industrial engraving specialists.”

Brunel Engraving’s work is in evidence throughout the whole of the country, from the inscriptions at the base of the Isis sculpture in London’s Hyde Park to every individual commemorative plaque on Clevedon’s historic pier and, more recently, the intricate engravings, inscriptions and designs featured at the major new heritage site, Shakespeare’s New Place in Stratford-upon-Avon and the inscriptions around the plinth of striker, John Atyeo’s statue at Bristol City’s Ashton Gate Stadium.
