Springing into action

Published:  17 August, 2020

WILLIAM HUGHES says it has come to the aid of a leading automotive tier-one seat manufacturer; a rescue mission that was only made possible by the company’s broad set of skills and advanced capabilities in the world of complex wire forms.

“Although we had won the order a few months previously, and had turned round the prototype parts in just four weeks” explains George Cairns at William Hughes, “the customer hit a scheduling snag, which ended up with us having a very short time period in which to produce the first thousand pieces. These had to be delivered on time to ensure the product milestones were achieved”.

“Our customer is delighted!” Cairns elaborates. “We were able to deliver 80% of the order a week ahead of schedule, which gave it enough capacity to meet the OEM’s just-in-time delivery timescales.”
