SSAB appoint Pegasus Profiles (Southern) Ltd in Andover as their latest Hardox Wearparts® Centre
Comprising of three established factory sites, the Pegasus Profiles group covers the whole of the south of England and celebrated its 40th birthday in 2015. The Andover operation has been running since 1982, has a turnover of nearly £1m and employs 9 dedicated staff. With in-house CAD facilities they offer a complete design service and can process drawings in all forms, from DXF and NC files by email, through to hand-drawn sketches and templates. They have built up many long-standing clients across varying industries and are well respected in their field. They have been buying Hardox® Wear Plate for some time now and have built up a reputation for producing high quality products with it.
We spoke with Phil Scott, Branch Manager of the Andover operation: “We are delighted to have been appointed as a Hardox Wearparts® Centre. This will allow us to grow our business into the quarrying and recycling industries where we see huge potential for Hardox® Wear Parts. We have recently worked on an exciting recycling application in Southampton where we have worked to develop a whole new range of bespoke wear parts for some MRF glass recovery equipment including Hardox®500, Hardox®600 and our overlay product Duroxite™100, so we know the potential is huge within this industry. We also work with other high profile wash plant and quarry manufacturing companies supplying Hardox wear parts on a bespoke basis for their installations.”
“Over the last 12mth period we have substantially increased our usage of Hardox® Wear Plate, and our goal now for the next 12mths is to build on this even further. At this facility, we have a high def plasma machine, and two flame cutters allowing us to cut a wide range of grades and thicknesses. Our sister company in Thetford, who are also a Hardox Wearparts® Centre, give us access to laser and abrasive Water Jet cutting opportunities to provide the best solution for our clients. We also have a Lumsden power grinder here, capable of grinding Hardox® Wear Plate, if required, and we offer on-site services, such as technical support and suggested material upgrading for certain applications where an increase in life span could severely save on costs.
Brendan Perry, Wear Services Manager for Hardox Wearparts® in the UK and Ireland, was on hand to tell us a little more about the network: “The appointment of Pegasus’s Andover operation strengthens the Hardox Wearparts® Network even more. It offers our end users a complete range of services to best suit their requirements and brings a localised centre for the network to the South of England. The networks goal is to provide the widest range of wear parts products, together with the best technical support, to the end user. Through this, we hope to enable all our clients to keep working with absolute minimum downtime. We have a whole range of high quality products available and this allows us to offer the best wear part for their particular application, again making sure that uptime is optimised.”
Brendan finished by saying “We have the highest quality wear parts on the market, together with the widest range of options available, meaning that the end user benefits from more uptime, higher profit margins and better return on investment. Our dedicated Hardox Wearparts® centres will provide everything that you need and more.”
