About the CompanySpecDrum Engineering is one of the world's largest suppliers of conveyor pulleys, supplying world leading brands in the crushing, screening and mining industry. In order to meet current capacity 60% of the conveyor pulleys are outsourced to and made in China. While this has serviced demand, it hasn’t allowed the company to build its own expertise as it would wish and has at times compromised quality, reduced control and increased delivery and lead times. This will be an import substitution project enabling the company to redefine and redesign their current product range and to introduce a significant change in the production process by significantly boosting CNC capacity and introducing automation and robotics into the manufacturing process.
