rebonds

 

With Christmas fast approaching we have supplied some major blue-chip companies with products required for their festive operational ramp up. Demand for garment rails meant our client required 10,000 castors within a week. We were happy to help and successfully supplied all products from our UK stock. Our Automotive client needed to ensure his Automated Guided Vehicles would be happy working over the festive
period. In preparation we fitted a number of new tyres through our rebond service. We collected vehicles from site, completed the rebond and delivered them back all within 7 days resulting in a very happy customer.
