Our Process - Most of the enquiries that we receive have a unique aspect to them however we try to make the process as straightforward as possible. Generally, we manufacture products for other companies as a service. This can be from welding free issue parts to manufacturing complete assemblies that repeat for many years. All of our processes are controlled, we build jigs and fixtures for all work. This approach works well, even for some very low volume items.
Once we have asked all of the relevant questions, received all of the available information we will then produce a quotation based on requirements. This would usually give piece pricing, quantity breaks, tooling costs and lead times.
Tooling - We make most of our own jigs and fixtures and therefore can offer very reasonable costs. Mostly, tooling will be charged with the first order for a new product or project. We always quote this upfront. If the project is long term with repeat work over a set period for example the tooling could possibly be spread over multiple orders if an agreement can be reached.
