Set up more than 30 years ago, this highly equipped, very well established and reputable business provides a comprehensive range of products and services to a diverse range of clients, the majority of whom are based in the West Midlands region.
The company manufactures cutting formes for various trades including the print trade, box-making trade, rubber and plastics trade. All of the tools and moulds are made using a variety of different materials ranging from paper, thin board to corrugated board, foams, plastics, rubber and other materials - pretty much all materials excluding metals.
The company provides a full turnkey solution to its clients to also encompass cutting, creasing and laminating, working with both small and large dimension requirements such is the infrastructure it has put in place.
The business has been developed over time with significant re-investment in the company and its equipment capability. The company can boast a substantial level of plant and machinery. It specialises in small batch sizes with quick turnaround and can provide a full turnkey solution, be it the manufacture of one-off items and samples, through to small and medium batch work.
The business has its own internal inspection procedures to ensure customers receive only the highest quality products and services. This internal capability enables the business to take on varied and challenging high profile projects for both end users and the print companies who work with them. The company offers customers the facility to email drawings direct, allowing them to automatically process the information on their own CAD CAM system.
The business boasts a large number of regular customers and serves a wide range of industries.
From first contact to completion the onus is geared towards complete customer satisfaction.The business is committed to ensuring manufacture is to the required standards of excellence, as you would expect from a company with such infrastructure.
The business currently operates on a one shift system, Monday to Friday. This could be expanded if need be.
The business could benefit from a more strategic sales and marketing campaign. It has a basic yet informative website but does very little in the way of proactive marketing. Currently most of its work is via repeat business
