Vesconite Bearings has further improved its impressive production times on extra large bearings. The company recently received an emergency repair enquiry for two extra large marine bearings of 295kg and 335kg, respectively. To meet the customer’s need, the standard lead time of four days had to be significantly reduced.
Production turnaround of the two bearings was two days.
Vesconite Bearings is aiming to reduce production times of large bearings even further over the coming year, down to 24 hours.
Given the significant costs associated with dry docking, turnaround and delivery is a critical deciding factor in this segment of the marine market.
With these ongoing developments Vesconite is positioned to compete with any global producer of marine bearings, and is fast becoming the supplier of choice among international clients relying on quick turnaround and delivery.
The shipping client urgently required two large replacement rudder bearings.
Vesconite Bearings produced and dispatched the order within two days.
