Broder moves into “special processing”
Mark Burton: “Our new department will be a major benefit to machinists and sub-contractors as they will be able to rely on our comprehensive knowledge of materials"
Leading metals stockist, Broder Metals Group, has established a special processing department which it says will ensure that it is capable of meeting ever more demanding specifications.
The SPD brings together staff from all Broder Metals Group departments to share their expertise and ensures enquiries received which may require additional processing or testing prior to delivery are dealt with speedily and professionally.
Mark Burton, managing director, Broder Metals Group, said: “Our new department will be a major benefit to machinists and sub-contractors as they will be able to rely on our comprehensive knowledge of materials, testing or grade development when looking at component manufacture and supply.
A further benefit to hard-pressed manufacturers will be the department’s ability to convert material grades or sizes for customers to be able to meet these ever more demanding specifications, as well as help them bring on new products or grades – an example here being the recent introduction of MP35N stock.
The expertise held within the processing unit will be further enhanced by a 20 week metallurgy course that Broder Metals group director, Mike Andrews is running at the company.
By December 2014 every member of the Broder team will have graduated from the course and the company said that the industry knowledge and expertise passed on should make it a leading source of information on metals and alloys for the fastener industry.
The Sheffield based Broder Metals Group is a leading supplier of nickel alloys, high tensile stainless steel, duplex, super duplex, flanges and fittings to fastener manufacturers.
