How time flies! – So, it’s 21 years since the birth of CAS Assembly Tooling and Services. Only our Chairman, Dave Heard has been here for that long as he is the one who started the company – from scratch!
Back in May 2001 the company acquired stock, assets and the benefit of existing contracts of Redhouse Engineering. Things really started to move in the industry with Dave at the forefront. In July 2002 CAS opened a new branch in Stoke on Trent. Things continued to improve and in October 2006 CAS were appointed to be a Makita Tool Distributor. Following on from this in November of the same year, CAS were appointed DeSoutter Tool Distrubutor. Bosch followed in 2008.
Lots of new tooling contracts were obtained by employing the right people into the right jobs and keeping communication levels running with key account managers. Accounts were opened in many industries including aerospace and manufacturing, but mainly in the automotive arena. We managed to secure many contracts with prestigious automotive companies which are still in place today and we are very proud.
Changes have taken place along the way and it’s by no means been an easy ride especially through the world wide pandemic for obvious reasons.
We are please to confirm and are very proud that with the four key directors now in place, and Dave as the Chairman, taking a back seat in the running on the company, CAS Assembly and Tooling thrives week on week and continue to secure fantastic contracts with key relationships being the key. Delivering the right tools and processes in any plant whether that be bespoke or not, our CAS Sales Team work hard to establish new relationships as well as looking after old ones.

Here’s to the next 21 years!..and yes..How time flies!
