CB Frost Invests in New Beam Cutting Press

To maintain our reputation for excellence in a wide range of industrial sectors, CB Frost is committed to continuous improvement in order to ensure that we provide the highest quality products and services to our customers. Working to the same company ethos of ‘quality without compromise’ for over a century, investing in new equipment is key to improving our production capabilities and providing speedy lead times. We recently added a new cutting press to our gasket manufacturing facilities.

Following investments in high speed cutting equipment and the move to our larger premises in recent years, at the end of April, we took delivery of a new Samco 70 Series Beam Press.

Business Development Manager Daniel Brock commented on how the introduction of our new press will benefit our customers:

“CB Frost last month took delivery of a new Samco 70 Series Beam Press. The continued investment shown from senior management further showcases our commitment to ensuring our customers not only receive parts of the highest quality but at reasonable prices.

“The new machine will allow CB Frost to produce larger gaskets in a shorter time period, which will allow savings to be passed onto our customer base.”

Introducing the new machine to our facilities will allow us to further increase our production capacity at any one time, offering excellent speed and precision for cutting our high performance materials into sheets, strips, and bespoke gaskets. Expanding our equipment range provides us with more choice over which press will be used for each production run. For example, for high volume production runs, our high speed kiss cutting machine will provide the most efficient choice, whereas for smaller production volumes of larger sized gaskets, our Samco 70 Series cutting press offers high quality, extremely precise results to meet lead times and exceed quality expectations.

Reflecting on a successful period of growth for CB Frost, despite the challenges of the last few years, Daniel Brock said:

“Since 2018, the investment from management has been extraordinary. From moving into new premises, purchasing new machinery and expanding both the production and sales team, this will only strengthen our ethos… Quality without Compromise.”
