A decade ago, JHL purchased a Toolmaking supplier of 35 years, Abbey Die & Tool. We relocated the facility from Walsall in the beginning of 2018 onto our West Bromwich site enabling numerous benefits for JHL and our customers.
We are now able to co-ordinate new tooling manufacturing activities from our HQ and this has already led to an increase in the numbers of die cast tools being manufactured “in-house”. In some instances, this has also led to a reduction in costs which we have been able to share with some of our key customers.
Our ambition is that we will continue to grow this area of the business for mutual benefit. We currently manufacture approximately a quarter of all new tooling on-site. Our ambition is to manufacture larger numbers of tools internally which will lead to us being able to offer our customer base improved and reduced project costs and where possible, reduced lead-times too.
Customer models can be received from all major CAD / CAM software systems, enabling a rapid quotation turnaround. Our assisted design services (provided using our extensive in-house engineering experience) mean we are able to ensure a complete customer focussed experience during the co-ordination of projects. It is clear to see why JH Lavender should become your preferred choice for your next die cast project.
