We worked with one of the world’s leading manufacturers of remote intervention equipment, Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd (SMD) to help them scale up their business and meet increased production demand.
As the number one designer and manufacturer of work class and specialist subsea remotely operated vehicles (ROV) worldwide, SMD’s products serve a diverse range of industry sectors, including oil and gas, defence, telecoms and renewables.
Our relationship with SMD began with supplying a large number of loose, ancillary components for their ROV chassis. Due to our agile fabrication services, we were able to supply a fast turnaround of parts, which enabled us to meet both SMD’s production schedule and any additional demands.
When SMD’s business experienced rapid growth, volumes scaled up and the team began to explore the option of outsourcing longer-term production. Due to our strong relationship built on a foundation of trust, we were nominated as one of two key suppliers to produce SMD’s aluminium fabricated chassis.
