Stephenson Gobin Celebrates 50 years

Stephenson Gobin (United Kingdom) - UK manufacturer Stephenson Gobin, is celebrating 50 years in business, a milestone that shows its commitment to innovation in the motion control industry.

Established in 1972, Stephenson Gobin continues to expand its work force, design innovative products and diversify into new sectors.

Acquired by the British Engines Group in 2000, Stephenson Gobin manufactures electromagnetic products for its two product brands: Geofire and SG Transmission.

Originally established as an electrical brake and clutch manufacturer in the North East of England, near Bishop Auckland, the company has grown significantly into a leading specialist electromagnetic clutch and brake manufacturer and its products are exported globally.

Keith Thompson, Production Scheduler at Stephenson Gobin, and the company’s longest serving employee, commented: “The business has changed massively since I started 39 years ago. We were originally a team of 10 with two central lathes and only one CNC lath machine! I love being part of a larger team that achieves and exceeds.

“I have seen the company continually improve standards of manufacturing to supply some of the world’s leading automation projects. We receive new enquiries from global equipment manufacturers every day.”

In 2013, the company moved to a purpose built manufacturing facility in County Durham, to meet the existing and future capacity demands of the business and ensure the capability for small or large volume orders.

Stephenson Gobin’s electromagnetic solutions are used in pioneering technology around the world.

Geofire was first to market with its Agrippa range of fire door products, introducing listen and learn technology to the fire industry, as part of fire safety systems.

SG Transmission’s bespoke electromagnetic clutches and brakes are used for industrial applications in the medical, military, intralogistics and robotics markets.

Andy Collinson, CEO, Stephenson Gobin said: “It’s the people, our processes and the continuous innovation that make this company, and we are delighted to be marking half a century of engineering expertise.

“We have a wealth of experience and product knowledge coupled with investments in our in-house manufacturing facility and workforce to execute our progression. I am confident that with the support of our management team and the British Engines Group, we will continue to flourish.”

Stephenson Gobin is part of the British Engines Group celebrating 100 Years this year. The 100 jobs for 100 years campaign offers a £750 sign-on bonus to employees who join the company over the coming months; an initiative which the group hopes will attract new talent to engineering within the region.
