Case study Texas, USA
We approached Bromford to produce a section we were already buying and then machining to a finished section for use in the oil industry. Bromford confirmed they could produce the section requested but were keen to understand what the product was used for. We explained that we machined grooves in to the top of the bar. Bromford supplied our finished bar, eliminating our machining costs and yield loss and at an overall cost saving to us.
Over £200,000 is being spent on improving energy usage and material utilisation. Supported by the Birmingham City Council – Green Bridge Fund and orchestrated by Pro Enviro, major energy saving investments are being made; including the installation of power correction units and motor inverters. Energy is such a major cost element that the management are determined to minimise its use, retaining its competitive edge.
