We support a number of the UK’s world class extrusion companies. Our services are utilised in a number of ways:
A number of established own brand extrusion companies rely on us to support their production capacity. When demand is simply too great tools will be switched to us for temporary production or if they suffer severe breakdowns they will switch over to us for the time it takes to resolve their own issues. Our tool room, technical and quality teams ensure the tool moves are seamless.
Over many years production tooling will wear and can become a production issue. A number of extrusion companies do not have the time nor can they afford the disruption caused by overhauling and recommissioning tooling. Where tools have become inefficient but volumes do not merit new tooling we are relied upon to run the tooling.
Own brand extrusion companies will often produce only one or two types of thermoplastics materials. As such they may not possess the skills or equipment required to process other types of material. Again we will help fill this skills/equipment gap.
Non Core Activities
We have worked with customers who have their own extrusion facilities which did not form part of their core manufacturing process. As such they were inefficient and costly to run. Through developing a close working relationship with our customers we have absorbed the non core extrusion processes into our own facility and made them efficient and effective. As a result our customers have realised significant cost and efficiency gains.
Disaster Recovery Plan
We have developed disaster recovery plans with customers whose supply of extrusion products cannot be disrupted. In case their own facilities suffer disaster, plans are established where manufacturing is switched to our facility to ensure continuity of supply.
