Fixmart Invests In New Pre-Fab Cutting Machine

Fixmart, a leading supplier to the construction, M&E and HVAC sectors, has invested in a new BIANCO band saw machine that will enable its customers to order specific lengths of channel, tray and studding, and receive it on site within 48 hours, helping them to save vital time and money.

Whilst the Fixmart warehouse holds a wide range of pre-cut channel and studding, if a customer requested a specific size or large quantity, it could take several weeks for the manufacturer to cut and deliver the required products. Fixmart’s new BIANCO band saw machine takes the process in house and as a result, has significantly reduced this waiting period to 48 hours from the initial order. This enables its customers to quickly respond to changes on site without incurring any additional labour costs or time penalties.
The company invested in the machine as part of its warehouse expansion programme. The Fixmart warehouse currently holds up to £1million worth of stock, including large stocks of regular lengths of channel, studding and tray which can now be cut to specified sizes. More space is also being created to hold the company’s expanding range and fulfil its customers increasing demand for prefabricated products.
Carl Ghinn, Managing Director at Fixmart, said: “We are seeing an increasing number of customers request bespoke products. In fact, in the last six months we have received orders for specific lengths of channel every day. This new machine enables us to fulfil this and crucially help our customers save money and time on site.”
