Investment increases capacity at Matlock steel firm

Matlock-based steel firm Twiggs, also known for stocking a wide range of engineering, plumbing and DIY products, has invested in a high performance steel saw to meet the demands of its steelstock and fabrication customers.

The new machine consolidates Twiggs’ already broad spectrum of steel processing capabilities, and since installation two months ago has already proved its worth through accurate and fast cutting of steel sections for a wide range of projects.

Twiggs’ works manager Alan Boden said: “This new machine has increased our capacity and so reduces order times for our customers. We specialise in giving a very quick turnaround on cut steel and we can deliver within two days for most customers. The Behringer saw is extremely operator-friendly and can cut multiple bars at once, fitting well with the capabilities of our existing three saws to provide efficient, high quality processing for our customers”.

Twiggs can produce a wide range of CE marked bespoke steel structures and engineering items, typically supplying builders, engineers, fabricators, quarries, railways, factories and agriculture. The majority of Twiggs’ steel and fabrication clients are in the Derbyshire and East Midlands area, but specialist items have been designed, built and supplied as far afield as Sri Lanka and Antartica.

The family-firm has invested around £100,000 in the new machine, with operator training and the recruitment of an additional steel stock person and a steel sales representative.

Boden added: “Over 110 years, our family-owned business has gained a reputation for high quality steel stock and fabrication and excellent customer service.

“Our continuing investment in new technology and capabilities enables us to continue to offer a superlative service, increase the number and type of fabrication projects we can handle and grow our customer base”.
