Manufacturer scales up at Silverstone Park

NICAB, a manufacturer of specialist high-grade cable assemblies & wire harnesses for advanced engineering applications, is to increase its production line from a new 5,000 sq ft headquarters at Silverstone Park.

The business’s cabling looms and harnesses are designed bespoke to withstand demanding environments. This can range from inside Covid test centre laboratory equipment to navigational instrumentation aboard aeroplanes, helicopters and Navy vessels.

“We manufacturer at low to medium volume for the very specific, made-to-measure needs of customers who are operating at an extremely high level,” explained MD Nick Locke. “This could even be in ambulances or high-performance vehicles – wherever there is a need to ensure 100% reliability in linking up power and data devices.”

Nick founded NICAB in Brackley in 2010 after spotting a niche opportunity in the UK’s manufacturing industry supply chain.

The business has gradually expanded to 14 employees covering roles in admin, purchasing, accounts, product and technical management, quality inspection and test engineering.

Nick added: “We’ve moved wholesale to Silverstone Park and the team are excited by that – it’s a bigger building, the place looks fantastic on arrival and there’s a real quality to the name. We most definitely do not see this as ‘a factory’. This is a contemporary HQ for our business, complete with a workshop of skilled technicians.”
