Engineering design company CCSL is planning to double turnover in the next three years on the back of recent investment.
With offices in Abercynon, the firm is a leading reseller of SolidWorks 3D software in Wales, used to provide design solutions for the engineering industry.
The firm has a wide range of clients from small to large, including Tata Steel in Port Talbot.
“We are a value-added seller of SolidWorks,” says Managing Director Emyr Hughes. “By that we mean that we offer our customers full support and training in the use and implementation of the software, going far beyond simply making a sale.
“This has helped us establish our strong position in Wales and other parts of the UK as a leading supplier of this impressive 3D CAD software.”
CCSL, celebrating 25 years in business, has obtained a £25,000 loan from Tata subsidiary UK Steel Enterprise to underpin investment and expansion. As well as this, the firm is reinvesting profits for future growth.
The Welsh Government support arm, Business Wales, has also provided ongoing assistance.
As a result, a new dedicated training facility has been opened at both offices, and new equipment purchased.
Turnover presently stands at £700,000, and the business plan predicts that will double in three years. “We are confident we can reach a turnover of £1.5 million within three years,” commented Mr Hughes. In that period, the aim is to increase staff from the current 8 to 12.
Glyn Thomas of UK Steel Enterprise, said:”We are delighted to support CCSL as it looks to further growth in coming years. The firm is creating quality jobs in Wales and building expertise in the workforce. We wish them every success.”
