How to Choose the Right UK Conveyor Manufacturer for Your Project

Updated: Apr 19, 2023

You have found the finances, the need has been there for while, and the business thinks its the right decision. Sounds like you're in the market for a conveyor belt system, and as such one of the first key decisions you'll need to make is choosing the right manufacturer. With so many UK conveyor manufacturers to choose from, it can no doubt be an interesting endeavour to determine which one is the best fit, for your needs. In this weeks blog we go over some of the key things our customers have told us they looked for, when choosing their conveyor system, manufacturing partner.

1. Experience: Look for a manufacturer that has a proven track record of designing and installing conveyor systems in your industry. An experienced manufacturer will have a better understanding of your unique needs and challenges, and can offer more tailored solutions. Additionally, they will be better equipped to handle any unexpected issues that may arise during the design or installation process. In short, ensure that the industry that you work within, has been served by your supplier before. That is a key thing to look out for.

2. Quality: Your conveyor system is a significant investment, so it's essential to work with a manufacturer that delivers high-quality products. Look for a manufacturer that uses the best materials and components, and has a robust quality control process to ensure that each system is built to last. We test all of our systems, assembled in our facility thoroughly before installation on site.

3. Customisation: No two conveyor systems are exactly the same, so it's crucial to work with a manufacturer that can customise your system to meet your specific requirements. Look for a manufacturer that offers a range of customisation options, from conveyor length and width to the types of belts and rollers used. This is where a wide range of experience is also of benefit.

4. Getting the Requirements Right: Before any design work can begin, it's crucial to get the requirements for your conveyor system right. This requires careful consideration of your specific needs, including production volume, product size and weight, and any other unique requirements you may have in relation to the industry that you work in ie food/drink/chemical etc.

At CCL, we understand the importance of getting the requirements right. We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs and offer our knowledge and expertise to ensure that we get the requirements spot on. We believe in friendly challenge, which means that we will ask questions and suggest alternatives to ensure that your conveyor system meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

5. Customer Service: Consider the level of customer service offered by each manufacturer. Look for a manufacturer that is responsive to your needs and is willing to work with you throughout the entire process, from design to installation and beyond.

6. It is also worth mentioning cost, which is massively important, especially in light of other rising prices. Cost is always a factor mentioned by our customers, but actually it is usually cited as just ONE of the factors that needs to be considered in the round. Cost, however important it is, is not the entire picture.

By considering these factors, our experience tells us you can choose the right UK conveyor manufacturer for your project and ensure that you get a system that meets your needs and hopefully exceeds your expectations.
