Blackwood worked alongside a North American brand to deliver a counterweight for agricultural machinery
Blackwood continues to diversify its offering working alongside agricultural partners to deliver high-quality complex counterweights for agricultural machinery.
We worked alongside a prominent North American brand to deliver a 0.7T Grey Iron Counterweight to be used on a motor grader.
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.
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.
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.
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.
