When the gyms closed in 2020 we created a design and began to manufacture Olympic lifting plates from raw steel, in house, at our site in Barnsley. Zenith Plates was born to provide an alternative to rubber bumper weights and accommodate strength and resistance training. Our plates provide our customers with a premium product without the premium price tag.

Fast forward 12 months we’ve built a brand that now distributes Olympic weightlifting plates throughout the UK. As a small retailer operating in the gym equipment market the response we’ve received is phenomenal and we thank each and every customer for believing in us when started out.

Today we’d like to celebrate just how far we’ve come, but we couldn’t have achieved this without our staff, the driving force behind the business. No job is ever too big, we’ve gone from strength to strength with the expertise and dedication from each and every individual, for that we truly thank them for all their hard work.

The future is exciting for Cutting Technologies, we shall continue to learn and evolve to ensure we’re delivering the best service to provide top quality laser cutting services.

Here’s to the next 18 years of teamwork and innovation!
