Rebrand for manufacturing group

BG Engineering, NiTEC, Pentag Gears and Spire Laboratories is now known as CBE+


A group of four manufacturing businesses in Chesterfield have rebranded after being integrated into their parent company.

Cooper Brown Enterprises (CBE), the parent company of BG Engineering, NiTEC, Pentag Gears and Spire Laboratories is now known as CBE+, with the individual divisions rebranded as CBE+ Precision, CBE+ Electroless Nickel, CBE+ Gears, CBE+ Beam Pumps and CBE+ Laboratories, respectively.

Group chief executive Marie Cooper said: "Since achieving AS9100, the international management system standard for the aircraft, space and defence industry, for our precision engineering business, we have experienced strong demand from customers for other services within the group.

"We recognised the benefits of having a single brand, so we can more easily demonstrate the complementary capabilities that we can offer to the supply chain.

"Our aim is to become a multi-disciplinary supplier to many industries including the aerospace & defence, energy and renewables sectors.

"We have moved our manufacturing businesses onto one site at Enterprise Drive in Holmewood, Chesterfield and this has meant a significant investment in acquiring equipment and technology, implementing a new factory layout, refurbishing the offices, manufacturing facility and conference room, plus build a brand new laboratory for testing, validation and certification for the plating industry.

"We are also investing in a new aerospace plating line, which we expect to be completed by the end of 2019."
