“Our new laser profiling facility houses the modern technology we need to provide the speed and quality of service we want to offer. It is a complementary service our clients can combine with a range of others  we have available on site. Components and work pieces may flow through one or all our production departments. These include profiling, bending, machining, welding, fitting, finishing and installation.

It’s been an exciting and challenging year, and now we’re looking forward to 2015 with renewed energy and enthusiasm. All the equipment is fully operational and producing to customer specifications.”
