New machinery strengthens Devoran Metals

A Devoran based steel reinforcement business is stronger than ever with the introduction of innovative new machinery to its workshop.

Devoran Metals, one of the largest metal works companies in the South West, has invested in automated technology by purchasing a MEP Mini Syntax 16, the only machine of its kind in the South West.

This machine allows the team to cut and bend standard and bespoke steel reinforcement bars for the construction industry in an extremely quick and accurate production process.

With reduced intervention of machine operators the investment has increased productivity within the 14-strong workforce by 30%. As a result of faster production and a wider range of bending capability, customer satisfaction has skyrocketed – orders have already increased by 30% across the UK compared to last year.

Richard Orsman, Managing Director at Devoran Metals said:

“With a commitment to providing the latest and most innovative products, investment in this machine has been an obvious choice for our company. It will enable us to deliver the highest quality steel reinforcement bars cut and bent to any custom shape and most importantly, we are able to quickly respond to the needs of our customers.”

Richard also sees the investment as good news for Cornwall, saying:

“The ultimate aim of investing in this new technology is to grow and future-proof our business. We hope to create more jobs in Cornwall and continue to make our mark as a key player in the UK’s steel reinforcement industry.”

Devoran Metals is the only Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels (CARES) approved steel reinforcement company in Cornwall dedicated to producing high quality products with a focus on safety and reliability.

As one of the South West’s leading specialist suppliers of steel reinforcement and associated products for concrete reinforcement, Devoran Metals provide a complete package of products required for reinforced concrete.
