We have 3 main production areas, as well as skilled, versatile Engineers who are crucial to the day to day running of the company.
Zig Zag & Sinuous Dept
We are currently manufacturing @ half a million sinuous springs per week from 14 machines. Standard sizes are kept in stock so if customers have emergency requirements then next day delivery, or even same day delivery is an option. Minimum 300,000 springs of varying lengths and gauges are kept in stock at any time. All springs are heat treated.
Traditional Mesh Top Dept
The traditional quality springing option which is still popular. This is far more labour intensive, with 6 different production operations required to complete each unit. We have a dedicated specification system, every product in this department having its own specification. We are currently manufacturing approximately 1,200 units per week.
Fishmouth & Bracewire Dept
While not as labour intensive as Traditional, this is a bespoke product working from a specification. This department is slowly increasing in popularity and we are currently producing approximately 3,000 units per week.
We carry minimum 500 tonnes of wire and associated raw materials at any one time. Only established and reputable wire/steel product suppliers are used. We rigorously audit and test the products of any new supplier before going into production. We also sample test established supplier’s products on an regular basis.
With a wide range of machinery across all production departments, skilled, versatile Engineers are crucial to the day to day running of the company. We employ 8 time served Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, 3 of which joined the company as apprentices. As well as maintaining machines, our Engineers also have design and build capabilities. We have recently invested £90,000 in a CNC milling machine and a CNC lathe.
