DON-BUR Invest ?2M In New Chassis & Component Manufacturing Facilities PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 June 2007

DON-BUR are already known for their “One-Stop” shop approach, encompassing trailer and rigid bodywork manufacturing with vehicle curtain and load restraint manufacture, graphics, aerodynamic processes to reduce the co-efficient of drag & optimise fuel consumption, and the full complement of after sales services (repair, refurbishment, re-livery, servicing & parts).  To truly complete the “cradle to grave” ideology, they have recently invested £2 million on new chassis and component manufacture workshops, including press brake, plasma cutting and beam welding equipment.

DON-BUR had already invested £500,000 in the latest 3D engineering software (Solidworks®) with data warehousing systems (Driveworks®) and this latest development allows them to seamlessly transfer 3D engineered model drawings into the semi-automated manufacturing software.  They now have the facilities to produce an impressive 48 chassis per week with the flexibility to meet bespoke customer requirements.

As the recognised UK market leaders for tailored trailers and rigid bodywork, including fixed and moving double deck systems, this puts DON-BUR is an ideal position to maximise efficiency and improve the already high standard of end product.  Despite the high initial outlay, in the current tight-margin marketplace the resultant reduction in running costs provides the leverage to maintain competitive prices and keep customer satisfaction and loyalty.

EC Whole vehicle type approval is looming and, although DON-BUR currently follow expected standards, they feel that they are now well prepared.  Don Burton, Chairman says “DON-BUR is now fully accountable for every single stage of the design and build process and our quality management program has to be well structured because there’s no-one we can turn to but ourselves.  The company is in a stronger position to fully maintain a consistent and high quality standard of build.”

DON-BUR welcomes any potential customer who wishes to inspect the new premises and are happy to arrange a convenient time.
