This will be an exciting year for AB Pneumatics Ltd.
One of our main customers sent their senior technical team over to visit the factory in January. The purpose was to discuss the number of projects that we are currently working on but also to look at the capabilities going forward. The Shock-absorber sleeves we produce for them are ever increasing and by working closely we have been able to develop some very technical products. During the next few months we will be implementing new tooling which will produce 4 new sleeves with a further 3 in development.
Our seat airspring business has started well with increased orders and sales up on the same time last year. The assembly lines for these products have had an upgrade which will improve effiecency as well as making it easier to move**
Donut Springs are continuing to grow with new orders to our customer in Italy as well as a shipment going out to Russia. AB Americas is working hard on becoming the name of our springs in the US and with potential O.E business being worked on the orders should be increasing to substantial levels very soon.
**MOVE** A decision has been made to move to a larger facility which is currently under construction and our planned moving date is estimated around the end of April start of May this year. The purpose built factory will make our process more efficient as well as allowing for the forecast growth. Over the next few weeks we will update this inforamtion on this and we will be advising our customers of the measures we are putting in place to ensure continuity of supply.
