Salvador and Elcon success in the North East

When Blyth Northumberland based Transped Ltd decided to replace existing crosscutting and panel sawing machines with new equipment during the latter part of 2012 they approached Daltons Wadkin knowing that they were able to offer arguably two of the best engineered and most highly rated machines available.

Transped Ltd were established in 1997 to create add-on services and marketing for the Port of Blyth. The company’s activities embrace a wide range of import/ export activities including shipping services, distribution and storage, worldwide forwarding, etc, and importantly import/ export packing, hence their requirement for high specification woodworking machinery.

Daltons Wadkin Sales Director Andy Walsh had no hesitation in offering the Salvador S200 Superpush Optimising Crosscutting Saw with which the company have had much success and paired this with an Elcon 135D Vertical Panel Saw of compact and operator friendly specification designed to suit limited operating space and a comparatively low budget. The Salvador Crosscut is designed for fast and accurate cutting, incorporates pc controls and is fully programmable.

Both machines were delivered, commissioned and installed by Daltons Wadkin during the winter and the old machines which Transped had been using were taken away. Subsequently Transped now have two brand new machines in their workshops and as Warehouse Manager Daniel Hooper commented, “We are delighted with this equipment and with the assistance and service provided by Daltons Wadkin who were helpful from start to finish. The machines will improve the efficiency and accuracy of our production as well as being easy to operate and safe to use.” Andy Walsh added, “We have been supplying Elcon Vertical Panel Saws for many years and there are countless numbers of them all over the UK and Ireland but the Salvador is a comparatively recent addition to our portfolio and it is particularly satisfying to be able to place another one in the North East, strengthening as it does a network of installations which is fast growing throughout the UK.”
