Automotive stillages Photo

A large automotive pressing company approached Ridgeway Steel to design and manufacture a stillage with the capacity to transport from between 28-32 sunroof assemblies from the UK to Eastern Europe. It was vital that the assemblies were kept apart so as to prevent them getting damaged during transport. Furthermore they needed to be sufficiently robust to allow for handling by Fork Lift Truck.
Following a site meeting Ridgeway came up with an innovative design (see photo) which met all the customers requirements. Samples were supplied and trialed prior to going into full production.

Result; a cost effective solution designed and manufactured within a short time frame.
