    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.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client is looking for best price and lead times for three sizes of flow tube, all of which are to be made from aluminium to a high quality standard and anodised as part of the finishing process.

Although the quantities requested for these parts are relatively low, this will lead to repeatable orders and could also pave the way to similar work in addition to these parts.
