Precision Engineering

East Cambridgeshire is a key location for Precision Engineering and benefits from a number of established businesses that operate in this sector.

Companies in this sector include Shearline Precision Engineering based on the Cambridgeshire Business Park in Ely, and a cluster of businesses on Lancaster Way Business Park including Optimum Precision Engineering Ltd and Paragon Precision Engineering Ltd.

This sector benefits from a rapidly growing and increasingly skilled labour market, with good access to local apprenticeships via one of the area's four secondary schools.

The area also benefits from the region's internationally renowned world-class innovation and research development, born out of the collaboration between university research groups, new manufacturing start-ups and major multi-nationals.  Companies  locating in East Cambridgeshire can also call upon the support provided by organisations including the Cambridge University, the Institute for Manufacturing and the Manufacturing Advisory Service (Mas East).
