MacLellan secures rubber contract for pipeline

May 4, 2018

Natural-Rubber-MaterialUK’s MacLellan Rubber has been selected by one of the country’s premier gasket cutters to supply Natural Rubber material for the second phase of a pipeline Bearing Pad contract; the first phrase was awarded mid-2017.

MacLellan’s part of the multi-million pound project involves material supply to be converted to individual Natural Rubber Bearing Pads that act as a buffer between pipe sections and concrete supports. Designed to be in-situ for the lifespan of the installed infrastructure, the contract award is a reflection of the customer’s confidence in the quality and performance of our materials.

This second phase of material supply, worth in excess of £60,000, is due to arrive with the customer in under ten weeks, which is said to be “quite an achievement for bespoke manufacture”.

Chris Hickson, MacLellan’s sheeting sales manager, says: “Our Natural Rubber material was selected by the customer not only because it fully conformed to the required standards, but also because we were able to manufacture bespoke width and high tolerance rolls on time and under contract budget.”

He continues: “In part, we were able to handle such a large and prestigious contract due to the further expansion of our warehouse and distribution centre at the end of 2017 by an additional 6,000 sq ft, giving us the ability to accommodate the weekly delivery schedule demanded by the contract, without compromising our existing material or our customer commitments.”

MacLellan has 146 years of trading and manufacturing history in polymer-based products, with its headquarters and distribution centre located in the West Midlands.
