Flexibility has been key
Flexibility has been key, with Hutchinson Engineering quickly able to flex up or down depending on the customer’s requirements at any point in time. This has included the addition of night shifts and weekend shifts as required by the customer.
We are well aware of the financial pressures of the road transport and automotive industries, and have been able to utilise unique in house design capability which has been central to suggesting methods of alternative manufacture to help reduce costs.
Many orders are kitted by our highly experienced kitting team, who can collate orders specifically to our customer requirements, whether that’s as part of a sub assembly for ease of manufacture, or boxing and barcoding each item individually
All parts can be etched with a part number and supplied with a barcode for ease of identification by the customer.
