Winchester manufacturer Bespoke Aluminium Manufacturing (BAM) have kept up their customer promise to hit the ground running on orders with an extensive purchase of machinery from Bedfordshire supplier Kombimatec.
Having made the decision to expand the company’s direction and start cutting frames in house, managing director Ben Turner and business partner Matt Goss invested in the range to ensure maximum, 24-hour output from BAM’s new factory, established in January 2022. Along with windows and facades, the collection will also support the production of aluminium bi-folds to the south and south west.
With years of combined expertise in sales, plus a mutual frustration with the quality and service from competitors, the pair chose to take on new premises and fill it with five Kombimatec pieces. Ben explained the difference they hope BAM will make to the industry landscape: “Matt and I have always liked to get our hands dirty and share a determination to offer the very best to our customers. When we talked about expanding into cutting the products on site, we immediately had Kombimatec recommended to us due to their reputation for simple, straight forward transactions and great customer service.” Ben continued: “We knew our spend would be big, and we were keen to move quickly, so it was vital that whoever we went with could support us in what we wanted to achieve.”
The list includes the CC124 Pneumatic Corner Crimper, the DGS530 Electronic Double Mitre Saw, which boasts a series of automated features and routines, an AMC308 Axis Machining Centre with automatic tool change cabinet and touch screen control, an AFV362 Variable Angle End Miller with quick change arbour and the MGS460 Variable Angle Upstroke Mitre Saw with 400mm blade.
From order to delivery was just two weeks, something which Matt and Ben were highly impressed with: “Kombimatec’s David Parsons has been superb to work with. Aside from the recommendation, we searched online for potential suppliers, and it was an easy choice once we saw the vast range of equipment Kombimatec offered. One conversation with David and we knew we were in safe hands. We’re very pleased to be working with such a progressive and forward-thinking company and look forward to seeing both businesses grow.”
