Steel Supply from Factory to Panama
The client required a large quantity of specialized steel that could only be sourced from China. Through our extensive supply network, we managed to source the required material as per the specification. We used our resources in South Korea and China to identify the correct factories.
We provided our own inspectors, based in China, to:
• conduct quality control inspections
• arrange the logistics from factory to port and
• inspect the vessel loading.
In conjunction with the client, we facilitated the logistics process from China to the site in Panama, South America. We successfully completed this project with the resources we have across the globe.
In 2021 Tooltech was awarded a supply contract by a large engineering company, tasked will planning and construction on a new mine in Zambia.
We successfully won the contract to supply:
• tooling equipment
• welding products
• lifting equipment
• scaffolding and safety products.
This was the largest single order we have received. Once awarded, we were given seven days to complete 100% of this order.
Within the week we were able to
• Procure and consolidate all goods and materials
• Pack all goods in accordance with the client’s numerous bills of material
• Complete the client’s quality and conformity inspections
• Package and crate all goods for road freight,
• Load and dispatch five 40ft containers
We managed to load all five containers in under 8 hours. Once completed, the cargo moved directly from our warehouse to the site in Zambia.
The execution of this order remains an achievement that we are proud of because of the limited timeline. It was a testament to our dedicated team and strong network of suppliers.
Tooltech is a company that endeavors to assist clients with solving problems within their business.
In 2021, a leading international diamond mining company, who are a client of ours, contacted Tooltech with a specific requirement for underground mining bags. Until that point, they were using bags that were of inferior quality and were unable to protect their tools from moisture found underground. Each underground miner uses a bag to carry their equipment, personal items & medical emergency and rescue gear.
Tooltech worked in conjunction with the mine and a leading manufacturer of safety equipment to design and manufacture a underground bag that would best suit the harsh & humid environment of underground mining.
These bags have now become standard on the mine and many other mining companies in the gold and coal mining industries, as well as petrochemical companies are currently approving the product.
Tooltech does not only sell “off the shelf” items, but assists in design and manufacturer of specific products for specific needs.
