SmarterStrongerTogether
is how we run our business

….it’s a crystal-clear understanding of what we do best, what drives our economic engine and what we are passionate about.

STRONGER Our desire to create an enduring business. TOGETHER Our passion to impress everybody we meet. SMARTER Our mission to become the world leaders in making metal components Our community expects us to have zero impact on our environment Our team expect zero accidents We continually drive towards Target Zero by thinking SMARTER to develop new approaches, leading us to become a STRONGER business with improved results, whilst all pulling TOGETHER as a team to make it happen. We recognise that our achievements as a business come when we can simultaneously influence all three of these areas and we strive to achieve it in everything we do. Our customers expect zero defects

Watch how we do it

SmarterStrongerTogether is a philosophy underpinning everything we do.

Smarter

Smarter

Our pursuit for excellence in manufacturing “challenging” fabricated and machined, metal components and delivering related services, drives our desire to continuously pursue an improvement focused culture, where we constantly innovate SMARTER ways of doing things.

Additionally, the application of our expert knowledge and experience of manufacturing metal components, means we can reduce the cost and improve the flow of our Customers products at the earliest opportunity.

improvement opportunities generated

Last year our Team generated 257 opportunities to improve across all areas of the business, via our online OTI (Opportunities to Improve) System. These improvements were driven from all levels of the team, and resulted in significant improvements to our business operations and results – that’s SmarterStrongerTogether.

By constantly striving to embrace digital technology over 50% of our business transactions are now paperless (saving over 2000 hours of Administration effort per year) and we are targeting to increase to 90% in the next year – that’s SmarterStrongerTogether.

Stronger

We vigorously drive the “economic engine” of our business by improving our productivity, whilst simultaneously reducing the costs associated with our activities to become STRONGER.

We encourage all employees to become directly engaged in the financial performance and outcomes of the business. We believe a STRONGER business, where we generate sustained and robust cash flow and profitability, is a safe and secure one, which enables us to sustain, invest and endure long into the future.

single source supplier

Our capability to deliver our Customers needs from a single source makes us STRONGER. By providing a complete service for fabricated, machined, painted and assembled metal components our Customer’s avoid the need to manage multiple suppliers, and benefit from products with a lower total cost of ownership – that’s SmarterStrongerTogether.
