A world class manufacturer of one of the widest ranges of windows, doors, sealed units and conservatories in the UK, Tradelink has invested in excess of £50,000 in crucifix welding to further improve quality and efficiency across its profile range.
Tradelink is fortunate that it has been able to continue to invest in the company during the tougher economic climate,” says Jim Moody, Managing Director, “but now the market is improving and our output growing, we need to adapt our factories to suit the latest production requirements. We invested in a welder on the recommendation of one of our production teams and within just 6 weeks the investment had realised the payback benefits the team had highlighted, so a further two machines were ordered. This allowed us to offer the same quality enhancements and efficiencies across all of the profile systems we manufacture including Rehau 706 chamfered, Rehau Edge and Kommerling C7O O70.
“We consider each equipment purchase very carefully before we go ahead with its installation. We have a preferred supplier list but this doesn’t stop us from paying our due diligence and balancing the measureable benefits of each option to us and our customers, with the actual cost every time we need to renew or revamp our machinery. This ensures our investments are always meaningful and ultimately provide our customers with added value.”
