The Northampton based motion plastics company, igus, recently celebrated their 500,000th order by hand delivering an e-chain to Performance Enclosures Ltd (TeamMate) in Oxfordshire, who have been loyal igus customers for over 10 years.
Team Mate have designed and manufactured a diverse, practical and innovative range of furniture solutions since 1997, specifically tailored to the corporate and educational environments. Their concept of designing industry solutions, after finding out the users needs, has resulted in them becoming a world wide market leader in their field of Audio Visual & IT solutions.
Their product range includes teaching lecterns that go into the majority of UK Universities and also exported to Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and many other countries. The need for height adjustability not only within static teaching lecterns and? products in general, is increasing as technology advances. Team Mate have addressed this need, incorporating their VariHite feature into the designs; a lift and lower mechanism. For this feature to be possible and safe, sophisticated cable management is required. This is where the igus e-chain has proven to be the best solution. The e-chain provides a safe cable-management system, protecting the cables so that they not only look neat yet are also tamper-resistant. Servicing is also made easy; the energy chain allows cables to easily be connected and inserted so the workstation can be altered to meet the need of the user, and cables can be checked.
With 80% of Team Mate's market being educational, they like their products to stay with the brand scope as the Universities associate Team Mate with high quality. Energy chain from igus lives up to this high quality standard, confidently being included in the 10 year product warranty that Team Mate offers.
Matthew Aldridge, Managing Director from igus, visited their factory and office with other team members to say thank you for their consistent loyalty and to deliver Team Mate's e-chain order in person. Matthew was also able to see exactly what applications the igus products are used in and the features which make igus ideal for this application.
"We have enjoyed working with igus for the past 10 years" says David Botting, Managing Director, Performance Enclosures Ltd, "igus has helped contribute to the quality of our products. The back-up and support that we have received from the company has been outstanding and we look forward to receiving the one millionth order."
