By fully automating the manufacturing process, it has reduced panel production time by almost 70%, improved production margins, and enabled its UK-sourced and manufactured products to compete with imports.
Automation has also delivered a more uniform, quality product and increased the business’s ability to meet storm-driven surges in fencing demand.
