More than just machines

Emmegi has seen sales of trollies and handling equipment grow dramatically this year as customers recognise that there is more to the company than just its range of cutting and machining centres and saws.

Trolley sales are up by 90% against the same period in 2017 and sales of its most popular Acca XL assembly benches are up by more than 35%.

Managing director Ian Latimer thinks that customers are choosing the Emmegi solutions because they want a one stop shop service from a supplier they know and trust.

Ian said: “We have always had a wide range of trollies, benches and support equipment in our range and there’s probably at least one piece of our handling equipment in most of our customers’ factories. Recently though, we’ve seen demand really spike from customers who are ordering them in bulk from us and standardising on our kit.

“I think this is largely because we have such a big choice available, on very short lead times and at competitive prices. Customers obviously like the product quality and service they get from us on machines and we make it easy for them to deal with one supplier for all of the associated ancillary equipment as well.”

The Emmegi ancillary range includes assembly and work benches for windows, doors and curtain walling frames and for hardware and gaskets. It also features stacking, racking and transportation trolleys and specialist equipment for gasket rolling and unwinding.
