It quickly became apparent that the team at HV Wooding were capable of really adding to the performance of the components we were developing. They were not content with just providing what was initially required, they wanted to optimise both price and performance
We are very pleased with the outcome of this new assembly, and the quality of the item you have delivered is excellent. It would seem the effort put into modelling it has really paid off. What I was hoping to achieve was a reduction in component count, weight and cost and we have achieved all of these. Consolidation of 5 main parts and their related fasteners into this one item. Weight reduction from 13kg down to 6kg! The cost reduction is also significant!
Ventilator Challenge UK
British engineering firms were called on to switch to making medical ventilators as concern grew about the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. This follows an appeal by Boris Johnson, who held an emergency conference appealing for an urgent effort to address the national shortage.
Strategic outsourcing partner
A leading international manufacturer of electrical accessories were producing all components in house. In order to focus on core activities and increase profitability, they needed a strategic outsourcing partner that they could trust. After a detailed evaluation, they decided to outsource all presswork components to HV Wooding.
