  • New compressor opens the door to savings at Shlegel

    New compressor opens the door to savings at Shlegel

    Tuesday 31st March 2015

    An unreliable air compressor was causing major production problems for Shlegel Building Products, a leader in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of door and window components, located in Newton Aycliffe. The compressor often broke down, creating a situation where there was not enough compressed air to power the weatherseal- making machinery on site.

    David Golightly, Shlegel's Engineering Manager, contacted Thorite's local North Shields Sales and Service Centre for assistance and a sales engineer arranged to visit the site. It was decided that as the compressor was not getting any younger it made sense to opt for a new replacement rather continuing to spend more on repairs.
