short lead times

Short Lead Times.
From drawing to delivery.

We understand that you need receive your product as quickly as possible. Short lead times is one of the many things that set us apart from our competitors. Some of the ways we strive to reduce lead times include:

We continually invest in new machinery not only to increase capacity but also ensure we are using the latest technology.

We maintain impressive stock levels of popular materials and thicknesses. Failing that, we can usually source plate and sheet within 48 hours.

24/7 unmanned operation with automatic plate loading and unloading enables us to cut throughout the night. Automatic plate loading means our lasers spend more time cutting and less time loading.

A combination of our in-house vehicle fleet and our close relationship with carefully chosen couriers, ensures your product arrives where and when you want it to.
