Midlands Toolmaker Scoops Major Industry Award


Aldridge based Phoenix Tooling & Development Ltd has beaten off strong competition to win top honours at this year's Made in the Midlands awards event held at the Science & Technology Centre, Wolverhampton.

The prestigious award for innovation and investment was presented to Martin Mulvey, Managing Director of Phoenix, by Lorely Burt, MP for Solihull. Martin explained to the packed audience of leading midlands industrialists, that the company's drive to expand the business and capitalise on its specialist skills base, has been PT&D's innovative approach to new projects, a recent example of which was outlined by the detailed design and development work conducted in conjunction with a new client, an internationally based, tier one, automotive components manufacturer.

This particular tooling project was approached from a completely new and original prospective by Phoenix, which, with the full cooperation of the client, involved the company undertaking complete ownership of the final product assembly, rather than adopting the traditional toolmaker approach of only focusing on individual pressings within the assembly. So successful was this particular project that further contracts have now been placed with Phoenix and both the UK manufacturer and overseas operations have placed enquiries with the company for similar projects.

Martin concluded by saying that this important award is testimony to the company's substantial investment in the latest tool room equipment, cutting edge design and development technology, well established apprenticeship program, together with the specialist expertise in Progression, Transfer and Multi-Slide tooling and as such is further confirmation that the company's high standards of quality and precision workmanship are now being fully recognised and accredited.
