    Finishing-Anodising

    This company is looking for a new, regular supplier to anodise free-issue aluminium whistles. Because the whistles are consumer products, a high-quality finish is sought and is critical for this enquiry. Once the initial sample is received and quality is proven, this will lead to approximate batches of 40 off per week going forward; therefore, this is a great opportunity to fill long-term capacity. The client is looking for different anodising colours including green, red, black, silver and is open to additional colours as well, if possible. They are also interested in bead blasting and polishing finishes for these whistles. The buyer invites calls to talk through the requirements and colours for the initial sample prior to quoting.

The other items in the range will be of a similar size, but slightly different shapes to the drawing as shown in the JPEG attachment. Quotes are required for 50 off and 100 off of the handrail part depicted in the Solidworks drawing initially; however, once the supplier has been chosen, this will lead to orders of all of the other parts in addition, when the client is ready to place an order.
