Welcome to the first of our blog articles.
There is always a problem with beginnings. What to write about is a constant issue. So let’s start at the beginning.
The chances are that if you are reading this you are probably familiar with what we do and who we are but, just in case you have come to us from another source, let me just recap.
Alltube is based in Daventry (which is roughly in the centre of England) and amongst other things we are tube and pipe manipulators fabricators. We also produce hydraulic and pneumatic hose assemblies and a range of other services.
In fairness, we are pretty good at doing what we do. That’s not a surprise though because there is a wealth of experience here and we have been supplying clients large and small for over 20 years. Just to blow our own trumpet, I think it’s our knowledge and attention to our customers that keep us so busy. Looking back, I can think of numerous times when we have been presented with seemingly impossible requirements and managed to find a way to fulfill them. We are reliable, knowledgeable, and we see all our customers large or small as important. So, perhaps we are allowed the occasional moment of self-congratulation. As I said, we are good at what we do.
From where I am sitting I can hear the bending machine working amongst the general noise of the floor. If you have looked at our video you will see it in action. I am always impressed to see it producing piece after piece of perfectly formed pipe. Surrounding that machine are people handcrafting, finishing and dispatching all sorts of bespoke small and high volume jobs. The mix of human craft and machine precision is needed to produce the high specification requirements of our clients.
So back to this article then – what is it that we can tell you about the work we do here and the wider context of our business area? Well, clearly any news and interesting bits of information from inside our business would probably be of interest. So if anyone decides to climb Kilimanjaro dressed as a panda we will let you know.
We would also like these articles to be interesting and informative about other issues. So we will be scanning the news and writing about anything we feel of interest relating to the local, national and international engineering and fabrication business.
Beyond that we would like to throw it open to you. Is there an aspect of our industry you would like to know more about or some related subject you would like us cover? If so drop us an email, and we will see what we can do.
For the moment I will wrap this article up because we all play our part here and I can hear from the floor that one job has finished and another is being set up. I know this is a big roll out, so I am off to make myself useful.
