Having experienced great success at their first Gloucester site Vapormatt are set to increase the availability of its sub contract surface finishing as their Contract Process Centres continue to change the market dynamic.
The new Contract Process Centre will be owned and managed by Glenn George and Larry Clarke who are based outside of Plymouth with a catchment area of: Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. The move was part of an overall strategy to make the Vapormatt wet blasting expertise more readily available across the UK.
The service offering will enable those customers to outsource all aspects of their surface processing or, expand their existing capacity with minimal extra costs.
“We officially opened the doors in April and it is hoped that the success of the Gloucester centre can be replicated over the coming months.” Comments Vapormatt’s Sub Contract Coordinator, Ryan Ashworth. “As originators of the wet blasting process Vapormatt pride itself on leading the way for its competitors.” This is clearly demonstrated by a long list of world firsts in their chosen niches.
The new centre will be able to offer a range of surface processing services from degreasing to deburring and polishing to preparation for coatings and bonding. The centre is also linked into a logistical network so that any specialist contracts, such as: edge honing of tools, chemical blacking and phosphating, can be easily carried out at the company’s larger site.
This is something that Ryan believes will change the dynamic of the UK market by bringing quality at a price that is much more competitive and affordable for small to medium sizes companies. “With our Contract Process Centres, companies are not only able to achieve the high quality surface finishes, that are attributed to the Vapormatt name, but also at a price that is comparable, if not cheaper, than doing it in house.” He comments.
For Vapormatt the growth of its Contract Process Services is looking strong and with revenues set to double over the next 12 months there is potential for more centres to open up over the coming years.
