MacLellan Rubber has been selected by one of the UK's premier gasket cutters to supply Natural Rubber material for the second phase of a pipeline Bearing Pad contract; the first phrase was awarded mid-2017.
Converting Natural Rubber Material into Bearing Pads
MacLellan's part of the multi-million pound project involves material supply to be converted to individual Natural Rubber
Bearing Pads which act as a buffer between pipe sections and concrete supports. Designed to be in-situ for the lifespan of the installed infrastructure, the contract award is a reflection of the customer's confidence in the quality and performance of our materials.
This second phase of material supply, worth in excess of 60k, is due to arrive with the customer in under 10 weeks which is quite an achievement for bespoke manufacture.
Natural Rubber Material Conforms to Standards
Chris Hickson, MacLellan's sheeting sales manager, says: "Our Natural Rubber material was selected by the customer not only because it fully conformed to the required standards, but also because we were able to manufacture bespoke width and high tolerance rolls on time and under contract budget."
He continues: "In part, we were able to handle such a large and prestigious contract due to the further expansion of our warehouse and distribution centre at the end of 2017 by an additional 6,000 square feet, giving us the ability to accommodate the weekly delivery schedule demanded by the contract, without compromising our existing material or our customer commitments."
