Family-run business E.B. Hayward, based in Gloucestershire, decided to buy a Techserv Blue Marlin plasma cutter after acquiring a neighbouring unit which enabled them to expand their business.
The company is eight-strong and has a large client base covering a range of industries including concrete products, agriculture and hydraulic presses. Before acquiring the Blue Marlin, E.B.Hayward was spending up to £2,000 a month on outsourcing the laser cutting of parts for customers. The decision to invest in a Blue Marlin quite simply made financial good sense.
Simon Hayward of E.B. Hayward comments;
What I like about the Blue Marlin is that it is a high quality plasma cutter which produces almost laser quality and enables us to serve a diverse range of customers.
All items are manufactured to our customers’ drawings which we are able to cut immediately. If a slight modification is needed, then we can make the change and cut a new unit.
The flexibility of being able to produce one-offs has opened up a whole new market for us.
