    Fabrication-Tube Bending & Manipulation

    This buyer, a company that produces reaching aids and spends £100,000 a year on subcontract fabrication, seeks a supplier to manufacture a large range of tube and box section components. These are currently produced in-house; however, the client wishes to test the feasibility of outsourcing their manufacture. This project incorporates aspects of tube bending, cutting and a small amount of machining, representing only a small cross section of the total work available to the successful supplier. Interested parties are asked to quote their best price and lead times - should a suitable quote be received, this will develop into both ongoing and additional work for the successful vendor.
