Major Investment in Calorifier Division to Increase Capacity

Wednesday, 04 October 2017

McDonald Engineers UK has completed a major investment programme in its Calorifier division to increase its manufacturing capacity by over 30%.

The investment follows a steady growth in our calorifier business as more clients recognise the superior quality of product coupled with the market leading lead times.

However, the company is now setting new standards in the industry by offering 98% of its calorifiers in under 1 week as well as enhancing the level of quality we are able to offer.

The investment saw the creation of an additional production bay which will prepare the ends for the Calorifiers. Each of the bays, including the existing calorifier bays, received new welding equipment, tool benches and curtain screens to optimise the production process.

The upgrades to the calorifier division follow on from recent investments in a new insulation production line and an additional delivery vehicle, as well as a new testing facility which enables the company to look at more hot water storage innovations. 

McDonald Engineers UK’s Production Manager, Brian Patrick, explained “Whilst many other companies in the industry are scaling back or looking at cost cutting measures, we are continuing to invest in virtually every aspect of our production.”

He continued, “The transformation to the Calorifier production process will enable us to enhance the fantastic level of service we already offer clients by being able to turn around cylinders even faster without compromising on the outstanding quality standards we are renowned for.”
