LL Fluid Power's stock speeds production at Petford Tools

Monday 14th January 2013

LL Fluid Power, the West Midlands Sales and Service Centre of Thorite, is providing a consignment stock supply service for Dudley-based automotive mouldings specialist Petford Tools Ltd.

The bulk of the consignment stock comprises hydraulic components to enable Petford Tools to manufacture hydraulic hoses on site, to ensure that production runs are not subject to costly machine downtime problems. An LL Fluid Power-supplied back up hydraulic hose manufacturing machine is also part of the consignment stock package.

Established in 1969, Petford Tools has developed to become one of the country's leading tool making companies, excelling in data transmission, modelling, digitised information and reverse engineering for famous-name car producers including Jaguar, Land Rover and Ford.

Speaking of the benefits of the consignment stock agreement, Petford Tools' Managing Director, Melvin Sinar said: "These days manufacturing companies live or die on their ability to meet deadlines, so the last things we need are production delays. It's reassuring to work with an extremely locally-based supplier of hydraulic components, which not only monitors our usage of stocked items, but also provides a flexible service tailored to our requirements, with full technical support when required."

LL Fluid Power is based in Brierley Hill near Dudley and has enjoyed steady growth since it opened as a wholly owned division of Thorite in January of last year. Although Thorite's core business focuses on pneumatic product supply and process system design, LL Fluid Power also carries extensive stocks of hydraulic hoses and fittings to provide a fast, competitively priced service for applications in a wide variety of industries in the West Midlands, including engineering, construction, foundries, injection moulding and CNC machining.

The company also supplier hydraulic hoses to each of Thorite's other nine regional Sales and Service Centres located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire and the North East.
