CSE Ltd based in Stockport, is a specialist supplier of precision engineered sheet metal parts, fabricated frames and other components for the scientific and electronic instrument, robotics and automation sectors. Their customers are some of the most innovative and dynamic organisations in mass spectrometry and other sectors, where the ability to produce high value, high complexity, lower volume, precision engineered products to tight timescales is critical.

CSE was originally set up as the fabrication department for Linotype and Machinery Limited in 1978. The department was set up to produce the chassis and guards for the Linotron 202′ photo composing machine at the time when Linotype diversified into machines with digital typefaces. Then, following the demise of the printing industry in the early 1980’s, the management sought local sub contract sheet metal work to help maintain the workforce and utilise the machinery. They formed a company called Cheshire Specialist Engineering, now known as CSE, to carry out this work. CSE quickly found itself immersed in the hotbed’ of the mass spectrometry industry which has a notable presence in the surrounding area. A number of long-standing relationships developed, the majority of which still exist today. In recent years CSE have also moved into other scientific and electronic sectors where the ability to produce high value, high complexity, lower volume, precision engineered products to tight timescales is critical.

MIE Solutions, originally installed MIETrak back in 2004 into CSE ltd. They were the first of our customers to migrate across to MIETrak Pro in 2013. In September 2015 CSE started using the scheduling software instead of the manual loading method they had been using over many years. CSE have been busier than ever, but they have noticed a considerable reduction in their workload! CSE Ltd are continuing to thrive, by reducing workflow, in turn reducing costs and increasing profitability, Thanks to MIETrak Pro!
