Leading local engraving company completes expansion of Clevedon business premises and celebrates latest industry accreditation

Clevedon based Brunel Engraving Company has undertaken an extensive refit and expansion of its existing premises at Britannia Way, off Strode Road.

The leading engraving specialist, which employs 30 local people, has increased the workshop space at its Clevedon headquarters by 25 per cent.  A new mezzanine level has been created within the premises and the interior of the building has been opened out to improve working facilities for staff and to accommodate new technologically advanced engraving equipment.

The expansion comes in response to a significant increase in industrial and commercial business for Brunel which has been established in Clevedon for 29 years.

The company has recently achieved the latest industry standard ISO 9001 2015 accreditation which will enable Brunel to do business with companies in specific industrial and commercial sectors where this is considered essential.

“There has been a significant increase in the industrial and commercial sectors of our business and the latest ISO Award will open up new markets for us”, explained Martyn Wright, founder and managing director of Brunel Engraving.

“We have expanded our existing premises to house new laser engraving and etching equipment which will enable our staff to answer an increase in demand for these services.

“We are also actively looking to recruit new people to join our Sales, Administration and Production teams.

“This puts us in a strong position to increase our production efficiently and effectively and at the same time the facilities for our staff will be improved to provide a better space in which to work and utilise the most up to date machinery”.

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

From its origins in small offices next door to the Curzon cinema the company has developed into one of the largest and most successful engraving businesses in the UK, handling national and international clients.

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.
