Metal profiles made in Kent, exported to China

We’ve recently used our roll forming expertise as part of a project for the Chinese Tram system. This included conductive contact profiles manufactured from 2mm thickness stainless steel, 3mm thickness brass busbar and 0.5mm thick brass indicator profile. These were manufactured as rolled profiles, complete with press operations, and in lengths ranging from 5 to 10 metres.

The last quarter has also seen increased ordering of stainless steel sections, notably cappings and covers, in the refrigeration sector for supermarkets.
