By virtue of its flexible working practices and ability to respond quickly to customer demands, Trans-web Limited recently won a contract for (and has already delivered) the biggest net it has ever produced. The order came from a company whose existing supplier was unable to fulfil this important contract.
Based in Oldham, Lancashire, Trans-Web is an established UK supplier of specialist lifting products, safety harnesses and fall arrest equipment with a reputation for manufacturing excellence and superb customer service. As a recognised leader in the design and manufacture of textile lifting slings including round and webbing slings, lashing systems and load restraints, it was well placed to step into the breach and supply the required product to its customer.
The product in question was a cargo net for use on a grain-carrying boat. The net is stretched over a tarpaulin to hold it down; the tarpaulin in turn covers and protects the cargo. Trans-Web manufactures nets to its own specification, used mainly for lifting lorries or cars. However, producing this very large net involved working closely with the customer on the technical specification.
"Knowing that the customer had already been kept waiting for several weeks by its former supplier, we pulled out all the stops to turn the order round quickly," says Lee Wrigley from Trans-Web. "We were able to deal with it straight away, and managed to complete the job within three days.
"On the back of our success, we have already fulfilled an order from the same company for a number of harnesses, and we are well-placed to become the customer’s future preferred supplier of nets and other safety products."
Trans-Web products are used widely in a range of industries throughout the UK and abroad including transport, construction, marine and offshore engineering, offering quality products at competitive prices. It is a member of the Resolute Corporate Holdings Limited, a family-owned holding company that includes Structure-flex Limited of Melton Constable, one of the UK’s most successful manufacturers and suppliers of bulk packaging solutions and vehicle curtains.
