McDonald Engineers has demonstrated its unrivalled ability to manufacture bespoke hot water cylinders with a record month in which 62% of the cylinders shipped were custom built to meet the specific needs of their clients.
The surge in orders for bespoke hot water cylinders is being driven partly through the diverse range of projects McDonald Engineers are being asked to get involved in, as well as through market demands for the most energy efficient cylinders and value engineering by installation contractors.
So, in addition to manufacturing its extensive range of standard hot water cylinders ready for immediate despatch, McDonald Engineers has produced hot water cylinders for railway carriages, bespoke back boilers, small 30 litre Powerflow unvented cylinders, calorifiers for various schools and hotels and bespoke rectangular tanks.
However, the biggest rise in demand for its bespoke solutions has been from plumbing contractors who are working closely with McDonald Engineers to ensure their cylinders are optimised in design and specification to minimise installation times and costs.
The company’s flexible manufacturing technology enables simple changes such as the location and size of connections to be incorporated quickly and cost effectively to correspond with existing pipework or optimised to simplify pipework requirements.
McDonald Engineers’ Sales Director, Jamie Stewart, explained “Our bespoke hot water cylinder service has grown from the one-off specials to become a core part of our business where we can help clients to save significant sums of money through careful design, particularly on large volume projects.”
He continued, “Refurbishment projects are one area where we can help contractors to dramatically reduce installation times and costs. By taking the time at the front end to survey the cylinders coming out, we can design and manufacture the cylinders to ensure the connections fit seamlessly on to the existing pipework.”
