In January 2004 Solex Manufacturing Ltd purchased an independent security shutter company which allowed them to move into a 5000 sq ft premises and further expand their business stratergies into the market place manufacturing and supplying security products and fire screens.

In October 2007 a further expansion programme was brought to fruition which saw Solex move in to a 11000 sq ft manufacturing base located in Washington Tyne & Wear equipped to aid them to move forward to meet their future goals and turnover to reach 3.5 – 5 million.

Geographically Solex Manufacturing Ltd’s current client base covers the whole of the UK including Ireland at the present time contracts vary from £1000 up to £850,000.

As outlined earlier the expansion into the 11000 sq ft premises gave Solex the opportunity in late 2008 to expand their technical ability by installing the latest up to date Cutting and CNC machinery. Having recently installed a new range of computer software which enabled us to speed up our design and manufacturing capability and at the same time enhance our product quality. All phases where completed in the September of 2008 bring the total investment close to half a million pounds.

In all industries and particularly in ours the quality of our design capability gives the quality of service we feel all our clients require and deserve.

As a company we always have our eye on the market place. Solex has always encouraged team work from all its staff and this generates a family environment and staff commitment to the Company, Directors and each other.

All the contracts and the corresponding manufacturing processes are monitored on a daily basis, all aspects of production, quality, etc are discussed in the daily production meetings, this allows for any problems to be remedied immediately. All contractual aspects including installation, design and health and safety, delivery are reviewed twice weekly again allowing for action if required. Actual site where installation is taking place are visited regularly by the assigned contract manager, and directors thus ensuring clients interests are at all times being catered for.

Another aspect of the company’s commitment to the client is in its approach towards maintaining a very high standard of quality through out the operation. Every defect is treated and investigated individually using such control criteria as cause, origination (in house /outside source) when cause determined steps are taken to ensure remedial action is taken and procedures put in place to prevent reoccurrence taking place. Defects found on site are where possible isolated and the above process engaged, whilst the clients representative is kept abreast of the situation at all times.
