Apprentice Alex’s Winning Ways

July 21, 2015

Held in June this year, the annual ISME Sheet Metal Technology Competition took place at Morgan Motor Company, with 26 apprentices taking part across 5 categories. Regent’s own toolmaking apprentice Alex Jackson entered Category 3, producing a hinged clasp checking fixture and taking first prize.

Adrian Nicklin ISME Event Officer said, ‘We must praise the skills of the Apprentices for their workmanship and quality. Dimensional accuracy of the test pieces this year were to a very high standard with marking very close in all categories.’


Building Renovations

June 3, 2015

Over the past few months, Regent have invested in carrying out renovations to the structures of both No 1 and No 2 factories. Architectural renovations on the front wall of No 2 factory have now been completed, while flooring has been relayed in No 1 factory, to allow for the reorganization of the factory floor.


Regent Upgrade IT Systems

July 4, 2014

During the last 2 weeks, Regent has undergone a complete refitting and upgrade of IT systems within the company. The replacement of old operating systems with Windows 7 & 8, helps to improve performance and reduce security issues. This has also facilitated the upgrade of the shop floor data capture system. The shop floor system is now running the latest Visdata software, which permits data entry by touchscreen and barcode technology.



New Stud Welding Equipment

March 31, 2014

Regent has recently obtained a new stud welder, for use in the manufacture of products in the catering industry. Stud welding allows for a quick attachment without the need for drilling and tapping. This method also leaves the reverse unmarked, making it useful for catering applications where a polished and wipe-able surface is needed.

New Product Launch- Showman’s Show 2013

October 11, 2013

We are pleased to announce the launch of the FloorStak Beam System at the Showman’s Show 2013, which is being held at Newbury Showground on October 23rd and 24th.

Designed for use with floor systems other than the “cassette” type, the FloorStak Beam system effectively creates a fully integrated platform structure. We provide custom-made attachment brackets to suit your floor system.

The FloorStak columns work in exactly the same way as they do with Cassette floors, so installers with a mix of systems can invest with confidence, knowing that FloorStak can be used with whichever flooring is being used.


This product, along with others in the FloorStak range, will be on display courtesy of our UK distributors, Tectonics UK Ltd, on Stand No. 308, Lew Spencer Avenue.

A further opportunity to see our products will be at the BEST OF EVENTS show in Dortmund on 22nd and 23rd January 2014, hall 4, Stand No E30.

Regent Invests in Upgrading CAD Software

August 2, 2013

We have recently upgraded our CAD Software to the latest version of Solidworks Premium 2013. Solid Works Premium 2013 not only improves accuracy and efficiency but also increases productivity and helps to communicate design information more effectively. It also includes advanced features such as FEA simulation which will enable us to analyze, validate and streamline parts and large assemblies and every development stage. Hence, this latest version will shorten lead-time and advance ideas from concept to produce with a greater degree of confidence in designing fully performing products at the first iteration.


Additional new software also includes Solidworks Composer, which uses CAD drawings to produce visual images which can be used in promotional material and documents.

FloorStak All at Sea

July 5, 2013


Regent have recently provided a FloorStak system to Stopteltat Event Oy, of Orimattila, Finland. Their Managing Director, Terrtu Keskinen-Ronkko, first saw the FloorStak system at the Showman’s Show, Newbury, last year and made the decision to invest there and then. Subsequent meetings between Regent and Stopteltat revealed that both companies share the reputation for taking on the difficult jobs that other companies were likely to decline.

The first event selected by Stopteltat for FloorStak was for a wedding reception on a small coastal private estate near the beautiful Tammisaari National Park.The site presented a number of difficulties, including fitting the 350 Sq Metre Marquee complex into a very restricted area, and the combination of a steeply sloping sandy beach with very large rocky outcrops.The only practical solution was to use FloorStak to project the main structure out over the sea – with truly spectacular results!

 Overall the installation was an excellent example of how versatile and adaptable FloorStak can be, and we are confident that the system will give Stopteltat many opportunities for further impressive and innovative event solutions in the future.

Joseph Benjamin Marquee Showcase

May 31, 2013

Last month customers Joseph Benjamin Marquees held a marquee showcase, at their premises in Buckinghamshire. The event allowed Joseph Benjamin to demonstrate their marquees to potential customers, also demonstrating the Regent FloorStak system in action.  The demonstration marquee covered approximately 600m2 split over 2 levels, fully supported by FloorStak columns.  A particular feature of the marquee was the sunken dance floor, which to quote company director Joseph Goode ” was made much  easier to achieve through the use of FloorStak”.

So, yet another example of Regent FloorStak’s adaptability in providing a solution to a customer problem.

By all means give us a ring if you think we can support you and your marquee. We’d be pleased to talk it through with you.
