One of the biggest issues facing fabricators is waste. In many cases, project specifications demand extrusions in non-standard lengths and dimensions and as a result, excess materials become waste.
It’s also important to consider that slow turnaround time from plastic extrusion suppliers can also lead to delays, wasting time and money to reduce efficiency.
At Euroseal, not only do we offer rapid turnaround and flexible capacity, but everything we do is completely bespoke and made to project requirements, so there is no need for fabricators to order more than they need to.
As a result, our clients benefit from noticeably reduced overheads as they are able to call the shots and specify what they need, rather than being told by their supplier.
Chris Duff, Business Development Manager explains: “We operate without any real limitations because everything we do is bespoke. It means we aren’t constrained by standard lengths or dimensions. If you want something that’s normally available at a 3m length at a 2m length, then we’ll cut it for you.
“This means you reduce waste and either increase margin, or the competitiveness of your quote, because you don’t have to factor it into your cost model.
“In the same way, if you want a particular colour for a specific project, we have the flexibility to do it.”
With one of the UK’s most technically advanced extrusion facilities at our fingertips, we have extensive experience in the manufacture of a diverse range of thermoplastic extrusions. Using our in-house systems, we can extrude rigid profiles and co-extrusions in PVC, wood composite, HDPE, Polystyrene, Polypropylene and ABS.
We have the capacity to extrude profiles from 40g to 6kg per metre and 0.7mm to 10mm thick, even for construction products such as curtain walling pressure plates or conservatory and window profiles and cladding.
We also regularly manufacture electrical extrusions, automotive profiles, hygienic wall and ceiling profiles and even garden decking. No matter what fabricators specify, there’s a very good chance that we can deliver exactly what they require.
As a market leader in our field, we are always working to refine our products and far exceed an off the shelf solution. By making small changes, in many cases, we can make a big difference:
“One of the other things that we can do is work with fabricators, plastics suppliers or even installers to refine products. We have so many conversations with people commenting on the off-the-shelf profile that they buy where they say, ‘if only it was slightly different it would be much better’ – the point is it can be!”
What we provide at Euroseal is a complete extrusion service, all the way from initial concept to delivery. We work closely with the customer throughout design and CAD creation, the development and manufacture of tooling, extrusion, quality control, final personalisation and packaging. We also ship to fabricators for their own distribution, or direct to customers.
By offering customers the chance to invest in tooling on larger volume runs, we also provide financial support:
“Extruding your own profiles and putting down your own tooling takes away the limitations. It can also deliver significant savings on larger projects and in-house efficiencies. The volumes don’t have to be that big for the financial savings or return to stack-up.”
