It was a privilege to applaud Semefab as they collected their award at the 2016 Fife Business awards. Winners of Performing Business Award (over 50 employees), which was sponsored by Thomson Cooper Accountants.
What made the moment even more of a pleasure was to be sitting with our clients as the announcement was made. It can sound like marketing waffle to read on websites that legal firms ‘become part of a clients team’ – but this is a reality that our team at CCW Business Lawyers enjoys. Our relationship with Semefab is one that we are proud of, as we prize our reputation on developing the growth of a clients business as well a protecting it.
Semefab is a great example of business success in Fife; a silicon wafer foundry based in Glenrothes, which was founded n 1986. Semefab now works with a diverse range of customers throughout the world, across the whole organisational and technology spectrum.
This dynamic team is a creative business and has focused on continuously developing new technologies with various partners to expand their client offering and meet global market demands.
Led by Managing Directors Allan James and John Bruce, who kindly invited myself and Alison to celebrate the awards evening with them, their staff and former colleagues.
We have advised the team since Semefab started in 1986, when they were effectively a subsidiary of an English company.
Semefab is one of the handful of companies in Glenrothes that evolved from the US Businesses that located there in the 70s and 80s, on the back of government incentives. When the incentives ran out, most of the US Companies left – but that spawned a few home-grown stars like Semefab.
Alison has been involved with them since her first few weeks as a trainee at CCW Business Lawyers 11 years ago. Others in the firm work with them from time to time, but the key relationships are with myself and Alison.
