Profab Engineering, based in Portglenone, County Antrim is one of Northern Ireland’s leading manufacturers of tractor exhausts.
Founded in 2010 by David Law, Profab provide a wide variety of fabrication services in addition to tractor exhausts. Their purchase of a Swift-Cut Pro 3000 machine has had enormous benefits – bringing cutting in-house has saved them weeks in process time.
“The amount of time the Swift-Cut machine has saved the company is immeasurable.”
The quality of the cut has impressed David immensely. They recently acquired a new customer who found the quality of cut from Profab Engineering infinitely better than their previous supplier using a considerably more expensive CNC plasma cutting machine.
“We have been totally blown away with the machine and it has exceeded all our expectations”
David calculated a 13 month repayment period. However, he underestimated the speed at which they would work, which generated a bigger financial gain. They also discovered they could provide a subcontracted metal cutting service – something they hadn’t considered before the full scope of their service offering was realised through Swift-Cut. Combined – this has meant that the machine will have paid for itself well within a year and far quicker than their initial prediction.
Enabling customers to grow their business by offering affordable, smart cutting solutions is the backbone of Swift-Cuts ethos and stories like Profab Engineering are the driving force behind everything we do.
