Kerf Cuts A Bright Future for Scottish Steel Working Company

Published on MTD CNC by Kerf Developments Ltd on 16 Apr 2017

Evolving from a small blacksmiths to a 1.5 acre site, John Thorburn & Sons Ltd has grown beyond recognition during its 70 year history. The family run business that specialises in the construction, agriculture and commercial steel-working sectors has always invested in the latest technology to underpin its continuous growth. This investment has now seen the Scottish company invest in an UltraSharp plasma cutting machine from Rochdale based Kerf Developments.  Employing over 50 staff that operate a variety of turning and milling centres as well as punching, pressing, fabricating and guillotine equipment, the modern-day business primarily manufactures, fabricates and erects agricultural buildings and structures. To manufacture the numerous components that constitute a complete steel building structure, Duns based John Thorburn & Sons relied upon its guillotine, punching, steel working and fabricating equipment until the arrival of a Kerf RUR2500 plasma cutting machine.

Kerf Keeps Customers Smiling With Service

When Arcon Engineering made the trip from Ballymena to the MACH exhibition eight years ago, the fledgling company was looking for a new CNC plasma cutting machine to replace its aging and unreliable plasma machine. In meeting Kerf Developments at MACH 2008, Arcon found more than a machine supplier; it located a partner that could confidently serve all their sheet and metal plate cutting requirements. Formed in 2003 to cater for the complex cutting and fabricating demands of the mining, transport, utilities and heavy industry sectors, Arcon offers an extremely diverse level of services. With expertise in design, CNC profiling, welding and fabrication, press brake forming, assembly and much more, Arcon Engineering has grown at an exponential rate, now employing over 30 staff.

When Made Profiles first opened its doors for business in March 2014, the first acquisition for the sheet metal company was an RUM3500 profiling machine from Kerf Developments. Just over two years later and the fledgling Wigan subcontractor has grown exponentially, recently taking delivery of its third Kerf profiling machine, an RUR2500 high definition plasma machine. Founded by Managing Director Mr Mark Derbyshire, Made Profiles started with one man's ambition, decades of experience and a book of industry contacts.

Kerf Gets Subcontractor into Top Gear

Published on MTD CNC by Kerf Developments Ltd on 15 Aug 2016

Ten years ago, Hopwood Gear Ltd invested in an Oxy-Propane gas cutting machine from Kerf Developments. Owning a machine that run like a dream with exemplary service support for over a decade was two of the key reasons why the Oldham based subcontractor went back to Kerf for its latest machine, a twin-head waterjet machine. Founded in 1974, Hopwood Gear immediately set its stall out as a subcontract manufacturer with a niche for producing gears, gear sets and all associated components. Now with 40 years of gear manufacturing under its belt, Hopwood Gear is a true specialist, manufacturing gears from 4mm diameter up to 3m - and everything in between.
