Celebrating 10 years of Sub-Tech Precision

Carl Ross started Sub-Tech Precision on October 1 2013 and a year later
branched out with STP Fabrication.

Under the umbrella of the STP Group he now employs up to 25 full-term staff
members at Enterprise Court.

Mr Ross said: “I took a risk and started a business that was funded with
assistance from my family and from the bank that had approved the business

“After a profitable first year in trading, it was realised that we were missing
out on a lot of fabrication and welding work that was required by many
companies in the town.

“It was at this point that I started a second company, STP Fabrication Ltd.

“I asked Matthew Spall, a long-time friend, to join me and run things on the
fabrication side, he accepted my offer and we began trading in 2014.”

Mr Ross added that within weeks of STP Fabrication starting to trade the oil
crash took hold and the following couple of years were a real struggle.

After three years based in two small units behind Tesco Extra in Great
Yarmouth, Mr Ross moved to larger premises at Enterprise Court, just off
Gapton Hall Road.

He said: “Here we have a large yard space and a separate office building that
now enables us to compete with bigger manufacturing businesses in the local
area and supply some of the largest companies in the UK and Europe.

“We now find ourselves in a financially stable and strong position with Daniel
Spall joining our team of Directors, to move forward and continue to make a
real name for ourselves in the borough.”

The STP Group also offers multi-discipline support to the nuclear industry on
both new build and decommissioning projects.

To help celebrate 10 years of the business, the mayor of Great Yarmouth
Penny Carpenter visited it.
