Wolverhampton, UK – MacLellan Rubber is to supply natural rubber (NR) material to a UK gasket cutting company for the second phase of a pipeline-bearing-pad contract, MacLellan announced 27 April.
The NR material is to be converted to individual bearing pads, which act as a buffer between pipe sections and concrete supports. The units are designed to be in-situ for the lifespan of the installed infrastructure.
“This second phase of material supply, worth in excess of £60k, is due to arrive with the customer in under 10 weeks,” said the materials supplier.
MacLellan met all the required standards for the NR material and was able to manufacture bespoke width and high tolerance rolls on time and under contract budget, said Chris Hickson, the company's sheeting sales manager.
"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,” said Hickson.
This, he said, gave “us the ability to accommodate the weekly delivery schedule demanded by the contract, without compromising our existing material or our customer commitments."
