Why Choose Airedale Springs as Your Spring Manufacturer?
As a family-run, award-winning company with over 70 years of experience in the manufacturing world, Airedale Springs is a leading spring manufacturer in the UK with a fantastic global reputation. We’ve been assisting in designing and creating springs for a variety of customers across a wide array of sectors, such as engineering, high end automotive, leisure and aerospace.
Our focus on delivering quality products has allowed us to work with a number of high-profile manufacturers and inventors, including the masterminds behind the Brompton Bicycle.
So, what exactly sets Airedale Springs apart from our competitors?
We Invest in Our Employees
At Airedale Springs, we have a unique position and relationship with the people we work with, so you’ll find a good mixture of young and experienced team members. In fact, half of our employees have been with us for well over 25 years.
The average age of our employees is 45 years, which is lower than the engineering industry average; this is because we invest heavily in apprenticeships and in training people. The benefits this offers, besides creating a well-trained and loyal workforce, is that we are helping to bridge the current skills gap in the manufacturing industry as well.
Of course, we also employ great people who love what they do! Without them, Airedale Springs wouldn’t be what it is today.
We Offer a Service Tailored to Your Project
When you contact us to discuss the products you require from Airedale Springs, we are always more than happy to give you advice on the best type of springs, wire forms or pressings for your project. After all, our many years of experience as a spring manufacturer, as well as the multitude of sectors and clients we’ve work with, give us invaluable insight into the specifications and features required for your project.
Our manufacturing process has been streamlined to produce bespoke work that meets the most demanding of requirements. The first thing we do after discussing your project with you is to design and prototype your product; we work alongside you to ensure that the spring or wire form matches your exact specifications. Then, when it’s time to mass produce your product, you can rest assured that we have the ability to manufacture the necessary volume of pieces you need, from one to one million – all without compromising on quality.
After undergoing the most rigorous quality control (Airedale Springs are accredited to the ISO 9001-2015 standard), your products will be delivered on time and if required protected from tangling during transportation, which will facilitate auto-assembly. We’re passionate about offering a reliable delivery service at all times, so we embrace direct line delivery, Kanban replenishment and consignment stock control.
We Only Use Superior Materials
Another reason why it’s so easy for us to manufacture high-quality products is that we only use the best spring materials. Because we’ve been in business for over seven decades, we have developed a great network of exceptional suppliers. From carbon and stainless steels, titanium, aluminium, to nickel and copper-based alloys and special high carbon steels, we always choose superior quality. Airedale Springs also has a range of decorative and protective finishes available.
