    Extrusions-Forming of Extrusions

    This balustrade and walkway manufacturer, who outsources approximately £1million worth of fabrication per year, is looking to hear from suppliers who can assist with a likely order they are about to receive, but cannot manage completely in-house within the required time-frame. Extrusions are to be free-issued to the chosen supplier, which will then need to undergo various fabrication processes, including welding, drilling, crimping, and more. Although the order is yet to be confirmed, the client is working on the final schedule and order delivery forms, so this is likely to be an imminent requirement. This is the first phase of a four-phase project and therefore, this may lead to additional enquiries for the chosen supplier between now and the end of 2019.
