Over the past 12 months the steel industry has gone through a great deal of turmoil. With a number of British Steel Businesses going into administration we felt the need to revaluate our steel stockholding and fabrication processes to ensure that we could continue to offer the very best quality, pricing and services to our customers.
In recent years our steel business has gone from strength to strength, this year has been a record year for Hawkins Steel Ltd and we have lots of exciting new upcoming projects already on our books for next year.
Last year alone we processed the best part of 900 tonnes of Steel. With that in mind we decided to look into resourcing new specialist equipment for our Steel workshop that would enable us to complete the full process in house. After reviewing all of the options available on the market we decided to purchase the Excalibur 12 drilling line, this machine not only allows us to process much larger pieces of steel but also works together with the Tekla software system that we use in our design office
This is the largest single investment made within the Hawkins Group to date, we are continuously reviewing our systems, software and processes to ensure that the services and quality that we offer are the best in our industry
