Tomrods make an outstanding impression, saving us time and money and proving that innovation really does pay

Tomrods are a welcomed and valued part of our supply chain. We have been working with them for years and have strategically focused on developing our relationship with them. We are pleased to say they have played an integral role in our effective growth strategy, and are an invaluable driving force in the development of our just-in-time manufacturing.

Ashley Robinson, Operations Director at Robinsons is very impressed with Tomrods offerings so far:

“The quality service and additional processing service Tomrods offer, increases efficiency
from offloading the material through to welding. In these busy periods, the increased efficiency allows Robinsons to increase our throughput of steel fabrication.

“Workshop hours are very valuable and Tomrods processing capabilities allow us to reduce hours significantly.”

Leigh Hardy, Procurement Manager at Robinsons is also very impressed with our strong and growing relationship, and the vast benefits it has already bought us:

“We feel that Tomrods are in the Champions League of Steel Stockist and Processors.
Quality doesn’t come cheap, and it’s not always about going with the cheapest supplier. We don’t feel that the service they supply Robinsons can be beaten; they deliver when we want, they deliver in full, and if they don’t or can’t they always communicate this to the Operations team in good time.”

Our expectations from Tomrods are high. Leigh continues to state his high expectations from his favoured supply chain:
• Communication – Both commercially & operationally
• Added Value – how can they add value to our business
• Delivery – deliver when you say
• Cost – this always is a huge factor in any procurement decision.

We have now worked with Tomrods on numerous and various projects and are constantly happy with the quality of the product they have supplied, and are very happy to report they have also eased our production overload (which we currently have). On low margin projects, this type of service is invaluable and is always greatly received.
