    Machining-CNC Machining, High Volume

    This company is looking for a supplier to machine the attached components, which will be used as part of a new design for the construction industry. An initial sample of 8 off of each part is required, which will be followed by monthly orders of an estimated 2000 off, meaning this is a fantastic opportunity for high volume regular work from a new client. Quality of the end product is paramount and pricing is also key. This could also lead to other work in addition to this ongoing enquiry.

    Machining-CNC Machining, High Volume

    This client is looking for a new supplier to machine batches of 10,000 off brass ferrules to be used as part of door handles.
