Advanced Chemical Etching – December 2022 Roundup

Published on 26/11/2022

The ACE team wishes all of our clients, partners, and team members a very Merry Christmas as they reflect on a busy and fruitful year. In this edition of our news roundup, we unveil our new etching machines. Also, details on our recent trip to the 2022 Precision Fair in The Netherlands and an important message regarding ordering into 2023.

2022 has been an incredible year with a resurgence of trade through covid restrictions being lifted and businesses beginning to operate at full capacity once again. Through the start of the year, ACE enjoyed the benefit of renovations and machinery upgrades at the Telford Facility. This was complemented by the remodelling and expansion of ACE’s CAD department, boardroom upgrades in preparation for post-covid meetings and the creation of project-led, self-contained manufacturing cells.

In March, the ACE Team attended the Hydrogen Tech Expo in Telford, where they were able to showcase our innovative etching capabilities for this sector. Also, March saw the team benefit from 10 new employees, a sign of their continued growth in the sector.

In 2022, ACE increased its commitment to innovation for EV and battery cell technology by attending the Vehicle Electrification Expo in Birmingham, which saw thousands of attendees at all levels of EV research, development and production.

ACE continues to shore up the supply chain into 2023


Due to a variety of external factors, there has been increased uncertainty regarding the flow of raw materials through international supply chains. ACE is working tirelessly to mitigate any future issues within the global supply chain through a variety of means.

We are currently working with customers to understand future demand, thus mitigating any risk of knock-on price fluctuations as the demand for raw materials potentially begins to outstrip supply by ordering at scale, helping your organisation to continue with minimal disruption.
