In addition to quality, delivery and price we always look at the product requirements and its current manufacturing process - our goal is to achieve genuine cost savings for our clients. It is our philosophy that if we can help to increase both of our companies profitability, there are long term benefits for both parties.

Cost saving # 1: The drawings of the hinge fabrication were first shown to us using a solid a profiled blank for the inner hinge, to machine 2# 50mm diameter holes, the tapered hole was particularly cost restrictive.
Proposal: The components could be manufactured as fabrications and that the bosses could be pre-machined and assembled in jigs to produce the finished component.
Result: An estimated cost saving in the first year of 20000 which ultimately led to our customer's product being more marketable. The benefit to both parties is immense.
