blog4.jpgDelivery to West Africa

In July 2017 we received an enquiry for tipping skips delivered to Ivory Coast in West Africa.
Ridgeway won the order for 10 off 2.0YD heavy duty tipping skips on the basis of our product quality, our willingness to adapt the design to the customer’s requirement and arrange shipping in a container to the port of destination.
This adds to our export markets having previously supplied Iceland, UAE, Ivory Coast, Spain, Malta, and Germany!

During the last 2 years we have seen constant worldwide increases in the base prices of all steel products. It has covered all products from sheet steel through to laser cut parts, nuts & bolts.
Whilst we can’t ignore this fact Ridgeway is doing all it can to minimise the impact it has on our customers. We are constantly working with our suppliers and the rest of the market to bring you the best deal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

blog4.jpgPremier Bodies relocation

In January of 2018 we relocated the manufacturing facility of Premier Bodies into our recently acquired additional space at Brockmoor.
Ridgeway purchased Premier Bodies in 2013. During 2017 we conducted a strategic review of our operations and could see the advantages of moving Premier Bodies to the same site as Ridgeway.
The move was successfully completed in December of 2017 with all plant and equipment relocated and back in production for January 2018-  It is business as usual!

blog1.jpgRidgeway expand into larger premises

In order to expand our product range we took the decision to double the size of our production facility early in 2017.
This meant we gained an additional 15000 sq ft of production space fitted out with 2 x 5 tonne cranes and 1 x 3 tonne crane.
We have installed 10 new welding stations together with an additional spray facility which can handle fabrications of up to 8-10 metres long x 2.5 metres wide.
This investment has led to us winning a contract for large fabrications used within the construction industry.
