McDonald Engineers, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of copper hot water cylinders, has announced it is to launch its own range of stainless steel cylinders after 2 years of research and product development in conjunction with Strathclyde University. The company has already successfully produced and tested several prototypes as well as investing heavily in new equipment and technology to assist with the manufacturing process required to meet the expected demand. The STEELflow range of stainless steel cylinders will enable McDonald Engineers to offer its clients a highly cost effective solution in the increasingly price sensitive unvented cylinder market. The range will feature a number of standard cylinders together with a solar option all backed with McDonald Engineers 25 Year Guarantee and manufactured to the company’s exemplary quality standards. McDonald Engineers’ Sales Director, Jamie Stewart, explained “We are fortunate to have established a loyal base of clients who have been asking us to look at a stainless steel option for years. And whilst McDonald Engineers will always be synonymous with high performance copper hot water cylinders which we believe offer superior performance, we felt the time was right to enter the stainless steel market.” He continued “The STEELflow range draws upon all of our technical expertise and manufacturing quality to deliver a high quality product that is more than capable of competing on price and performance with any stainless steel products on the market.” The announcement follows the successful launch of McDonald Engineers’ CUBEflow range of rectangular cylinders following the Elson’s decision to stop production of its rectangular copper combination tanks.
