Industry Leading Product
We Believe Innovation Is Key to Growth
Through our continued investment in modern machinery, training of skilled operatives and the adoption of LEAN manufacturing practices, Chapmans remains Europe’s foremost manufacturing facility for extended wear life components.
Our growth over the last 30 years has been driven by the sustained investment in all areas of the business, and in particular in our production facilities. This is evident in the industry leading final product.
An example of the successes of these partnerships is our unique carbide coating Armatech which was developed in collaboration with the University of Sheffield. This coating can extend wear life by up to 3 times, providing the farmer with real time cost savings. For more information, please go to the Armatech Coating page under Capabilities.
Our close working relationships with our diverse OEM customer base allow us to advise our customers on best practice for manufacturing techniques. These relationships also help ensure that Chapmans identify and capitalise on changes in the market at the earliest opportunity.
As part of Chapmans drive to LEAN manufacturing, we have invested in an overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) system that autonomously monitors the production through flow. By careful analysis of the data the system produces, we anticipate continued improvement in On Time In Full (OTIF) delivery performance. This is just one of the areas that Chapmans has recognised as a key performance indicator for our customers.
