Head of the line: Steadmans upgrade Carlisle HQ


Leading building products manufacturer Steadmans has invested £500,000 in a state-of-the-art slitting line at its HQ in Warnell, Carlisle.

The new line, for cutting narrow coils from main coils, is the only one of its kind in the UK. The machine has a wider range of capabilities than Steadmans’ previous equipment, including the ability to split pre-painted coil both width and length wise, as well as re-coil sheets. The new machine can also make flat sheets and split and rewind heavier metals, such as zinc.
