The Midlands based steel stockholder, established in 2001, is currently enjoying a boost to business, truly putting their production machinery to the test. The growing business is now preparing to launch a new online ordering service with a view to increasing order process efficiency for their national customer base.
Mark Nicholls, Managing Director for Steel Express contributes their success in part to their choice of sawing machinery and their fast turn-around times, “We started dealing with scrap metal from factories and have now grown into a trusted steel stockholder operating on a national basis and this is, in part, down to the Everising bandsaws we use for producing our products. They have helped us grow into what we are today, and Addison Saws have been there to provide a guiding hand and help us keep our costs down. We really do work all our machines incredibly hard, which is a testament to their robustness” and added “If they can keep up with our production schedule, they are definitely good enough for anyone”.
Mr Nicholls currently runs 5 Everising bandsaws in his Wolverhampton based factory, 4 of which are H460 HA-NC Twin Pillar automatic bandsaws with a cutting capacity of 460mm and the other, a H560 HA-NC Twin Pillar automatic bandsaw with a larger capacity of 560mm for larger steel pieces with all machines being run all day every day. Their original Everising saw, bought 8 years ago, is still going strong with Mark commenting, “We never have major problems with these machines which results in much less downtime in general, we’d go back to Addison’s to buy Everising every time, they’ll cut the toughest of materials which is just what we need”.
The new online service from Steel Express is projected to stimulate their growth by 15% over the first year and (Steel Express) are already settling on adding a sixth Everising H460 HA-NC to their production line to accommodate a further increase in demand once new products are offered through their website.
