Construction division for Expamet
Published: 14 July, 2009
HARTLEPOOL: Expamet Building Products, supplier of plasterers' accessories and builders' metalwork, has invested £500 000 in the launch of a dedicated construction division.
It will consolidate some of the company's most popular brands such as Hy-Rib, BAT masonry supports and the Power-Tie range of wall ties.
New and upgraded machinery will enable the company to launch a range of new products including windposts, and heavy duty, Type 1 wall ties.
After speaking to hundreds of end-users, the company has also introduced an 'easy on-site' initiative.
Component parts are now being etched with a part number, allowing for full inventory control and traceability. This number can also be cross-referenced with an on-site grid layout, and products are packed using the site layout for easy and accurate on-site distribution.
Investment in laser cutter tooling has also enabled the company to produce a wide range of new products, such as wind posts, with smoother metal edges and safer, rounded corners. Even the installation of masonry supports has been made easier by the addition of an integral soft joint piece of foam at the manufacturing stage.
Support will also be available both on and off-site from a project management team. They will handle projects from conception and it will be their responsibility to ensure a trouble-free installation, with products supplied on- site, on time and within budget.
To support this launch, Expamet has produced a brochure listing product information alongside in-depth advice on procedure and manufacture.
Every product section offers an overview of individual ranges, including clear illustrations of products and their correct usage.
