Building Lyncolec’s Future

2 July 2014

We’re dedicated to making restorations and improvements at our factories and we pride ourselves on bringing in top professionals to lead such projects.

Our managing director, Steve Driver, has been working with Grant Harrison, director of specialist commercial repair and maintenance business Majengo, for many years. The pair met through the Institute of Directors (IoD), where Grant is the chairman for Hampshire and Isle of Wight.

Grant and Steve share the same hard-working philosophy and passion for business. Grant wears many hats – as well as Majengo, he is chairman of a number of other commercial companies as well as being a IoD ambassador for the South, Chartered Institute of Building professional, champion of Business South and founder and board member of Hampshire Business Alliance.

Grant is leading a number of projects to improve the facilities of SCL PCB Solutions Group, which comprises of Spirit Circuits and Lyncolec. At Lyncolec, Majengo will be creating a new mezzanine floor to facilitate new machinery. Majengo will be modifying the partitions and ceiling of the Spirit factory and installing state-of-the-art LED lighting throughout the factory as well as making alterations to facilitate new manufacturing machinery. They will also be modifying the sales office and creating a new room upstairs for the PCB assembly department. Finally, Grant and his team will be conducting dilapidation work at the former Aztec factory, whose team moved to the Spirit factory after an amalgamation in 2011. All projects will be completed by the end of April 2014.

As well as his construction credentials, Grant is an entrepreneur in the marine sector. He is Director of Veecraft, which builds commercial vessels, and Director of Bobkat Boats International. Anyone that knows Steve knows that he has a passion for powerboats, and, through his friendship with Grant, is now a proud sponsor of young talent who will be racing in the Thurdercat races this year.

When asked to give a few words about Steve, Grant said:

“He is the most dynamic, entrepreneurial businessman I know, who has made a huge impact in the South region. He is the most inspirational business leader and I think that SMEs should take note of his proactive, can-do approach.”

We’re looking forward to seeing the end result of the projects, which we know will be completed to a high standard. The alterations will improve our working environment, expand our capabilities and enhance the wellbeing of our team.
