Quality Metal Solutions (QMS) started from humble beginnings. A company that was created by two people has now well and truly doubled in size.
For the last seven years, Nigel Pendlebury has seen QMS grow. He has seen a constant evolution of technology that not only allows the business to run smoothly, but also guarantees customers will receive a quality product.
QMS manufacture parts for a number of industries all of which are diverse in size.
“We service the pharmaceutical and food industries as well as the agriculture and trucking industries,” Nigel says
“Our customers are diverse from small fabricators to large enterprises so it’s a broad spectrum,”he says.
As technology is advancing, Nigel says the best way to stay ahead of the competition is to constantly invest in the best machines around.
“We are constantly investing in new technology,” he says.
“Keeping up to date with new machines as well as the latest software to keep ahead, is essential in a competitive industry like this,
“We are always on the look out for diverse equipment, which means we can do different things, satisfying the needs of our customers,” Nigel says.
What makes QMS stand out and makes them unique from other businesses, is the fact that they perform everything under the one roof.
“What sets us apart from other businesses in the area, is the fact that we design and develop the 3D designs and make sure our customers can get a feel of their products before we process them,” Nigel says.
“Not too many companies can do that under one roof,
“Most places require you to go elsewhere to get designs draw up, but at QMS we do it all for you,” he says.
Their newest machine is the TRUMPF TruLaser 3030 L20, which combines innovative technology and high powered laser power.
The TruLaser 3030 L20s new design enables reliable processing, a single cutting head strategy resulting in minimal unproductive time, as well as an automatic nozzle change which also reduces unproductive time.
“Our machines have definitely increased efficiency,” Nigel says.
“What has shocked me the most is how much faster the piercing times are,
“It certainly speeds up the process,” he says.
As a customer of Headland Machinery, Nigel says he has always been happy with the service and efficiency he has received from the service teams.
“I am very happy with the service provided by Headland Machinery,” he says.
“ Their response time is extremely quick which has helped us out when we have needed it,
“It makes the process easy knowing you can rely on them,” Nigel says.
