how we delivered for this project

Far East Partner Foundries

The customer utilised one of our partner foundries in the Far East to produce the Grey Iron counterweight. This was fully managed by the Blackwood team on the ground.

Customised Finishing

Gloss Finishing was required for this product alongside strict testing due to the nature of its use. The product was finished to the customers required finish and quality specification.

Bespoke Packaging

To ensure safe movement of the counterweights and reduce costs on shipping and delivery bespoke packaging was produced for these counterweights.

Road, Sea and Air Delivery

Shipped from the Far East the counterweights were delivered to sites across Europe via road while other stock was delivered direct to North America via air. Blackwood managed the transport logistics for the customers and tailored it to their specific requirements.

Inventory Management

Blackwood mitigated the risk by storing stock at our sites to deliver to the customer on a JIT basis ensuring machine build schedules continue smoothly.
