Union Industries is on a roll
with NSK Bearings Europe
U
nion Industries, the leading
manufacturer of Rapid Roll
Industrial doors, has returned
to NSK Bearings Europe to install
another
of
its
heavy-duty
Ramdoors,which can handle extreme
weather conditions all year round.
NSK Bearings Europe specialises in
manufacturing bearing products used in
automobiles from its Peterlee plant. The
company needed new doors, the first of
which was installed several months ago,
to replace two of Union’s competitor
solutions as the installations were
unreliable, incurred high on-going
maintenance
costs
and
more
importantly,
were
incapable
of
withstanding external wind loadings.
As a repeat customer of Union’s with six
doors now on its site, NSK Bearings
Europe chose the company’s Ramdoor
High Speed Doors to replace the existing
doors from the previous supplier. The
Ramdoor is commonly known as the ‘Big
Daddy’ of Union Industries’ range due to
its extremely robust nature, with the
frame being manufactured from 6mm
thick steel and extra-thick, specially
engineered industrial-grade fabric being
used for the door blade/curtain.
Among other features, NSK’s Ramdoors
have been fitted with heavy-duty, double
travelling ‘windbar’ systems, on both
internal and external sides of one of the
new doors, which assisted with the Class
5 rating the Ramdoor has achieved for
wind resistance.
Due to the high quality components used
and sturdy nature of the doors, they also
come with free entry into Union’s
Lifetime Warranty Scheme. The scheme
provides
peace-of-mind
for
its
customers, as the doors can be fully
maintained and warranted for up to 25
years.
NSK is a leading, global manufacturer of
bearings, linear technology and steering
systems. The company has a global
network spanning the Americas, Europe,
Asia and Japan.
Alan Hirst, Sales Director at Union
Industries said, “A huge proportion of our
business
comes
from
existing
customers, such as NSK Bearings
Europe. We installed some Bulldoors
from our range for the company back in
November 2000 which, I’d like to add,
are still in great condition, and so it’s very
pleasing for us to be dealing with this
Blue Chip customer again 17 years
down the line.”
“Securing loyalty from our customers is
a great testament to not only the quality
of our products, but for the level of
service that we’re known to provide.”
Steven Walker, Plant Maintenance
Technician at NSK Bearings Europe
added, “We’ve had bad experiences with
industrial doors we’ve used from other
suppliers, so we’ve learned that by
investing in a quality product, the
payback is realised over the life of the
Union doors due to the very low throughlife-costs.
“Union Industries is an excellent
company to work with as its
knowledgeable Sales people work
alongside us in every step of the
process. The customer service it
provides is second to none and the
after-sales service is nothing less than
outstanding.”
