Cutlasercut is a laser cutting and engraving business that can trace its origins back to 2010. It has since grown to become an award winning creative manufacturing service which uses bespoke laser cutting and engraving techniques suited to a wide number of applications.
Cutlasercut caters for many different customers, from large international companies placing high quantity orders to individuals just walking into the studio requesting small runs.
The company requested funding to support fit out and relocation costs.
Russ Mellor, Director of Cutlasercut, said:
Solent LEP and the BTG fund have allowed us to open a production facility on the Isle of Wight, which we would have struggled to justify or afford without their support. We had over 100 applicants for our first advertised job, proving there is a pool of talented people in the region just waiting for the right opportunity! I have found that the Solent LEP, BTG, and Portsmouth CC team have been helpful and supportive through every step of the process. If, like us, your business would benefit from match funding to help you achieve your ambitions, which include job generation, I strongly recommend that you investigate what BTG funding can do for your business.
