International view to sourcing and purchasing

Darian preview edit_tmbMany companies are now faced with constant pressures to reduce manufacturing costs in a climate of ever increasing costs and lower margins. This has led to a growing realisation within the manufacturing sector that in order to survive and succeed they have to look to outsourcing production. Darian was established in 1986, and claims it has been at the forefront of international global sourcing ever since. Exhibiting at this year’s Northern Manufacturing show, it supplies a wide range of custom manufactured components to leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the UK and Germany.

The company specialises in the supply of castings, CNC machining, pressings, stampings and fabrications as component parts or sub-assemblies.

There are various locations across Europe, India and the Far East, and locally employed staff to support the activities of the UK-based head office.

Outsourcing purchasing provides benefits such as consistent high quality, reliable supply at significantly reduced cost, while at the same time avoiding quality issues, language barriers, unreliable supply, differences in business culture and multi-currency handling, say the company.

A strategic supply partner has made recent investments of three million euros in new pressing lines to increase capacity: 10 hydraulic and mechanical presses with pressing strengths between 63 and 1000 tonnes with automatic feed.

There are also bending, rolling and flanging, modern welding facilities and electrostatic painting booths with an annual capacity of 190,000m2. CNC machining facilities mean that fully finished fabrications can be supplied. Fabrications in steel, stainless steel and aluminium can be supplied and the company has recently been awarded ISO TS 16949.
