Tradelink, the fabricator with 19 years experience of understanding installers’ needs, has invested in upgrading its range of Rotox 379 Combination Corner Cleaners to stand by its on time in full delivery promise while allowing for the increase in demand for a wider product mix as Jim Moody, Managing Director of Tradelink explains: “We have seen a steady swing to decorative profiles over the past twelve months and have experienced times when they have represented 40% of our sales in one week. We wanted to invest in upgrading the Rotox’s to increase our capacity for Edge products at the Mildenhall plant to ensure we maintain our high standard of service and stick to our on time in full delivery promise, regardless of the product mix they have ordered.
“The Rotox 379 Combination Corner Cleaner has been one of the most reliable pieces of machinery we have ever purchased, but to expand their capacity we either needed to invest in an upgrade or replacements. While most manufacturers would automatically order a new machine as soon as they needed more from their existing tools, Tradelink employs its World Class Manufacturing principles to find the most efficient and practical solution for us and our customers. In this case we decided to invest in an upgrade, which has enabled us to expand the tooling carriage and update the software to allow them to process the Rehau Edge range of profiles.
“At Tradelink, we pride ourselves on our commitment to customers and our on time and in full approach to delivery. This latest development means we will continue to meet and exceed our delivery standards as our customer tastes change and decorative Edges become increasingly popular.”
