Design & Manufacture
VWG develops products and technologies and manufactures these together with strategic partners in electrical fabrication and assembly, steel fabrication and OEM’s. This is a new and growing area of our business and includes:
- Electrical equipment aimed at increasing energy efficiency for heated systems
- Fossil fuel saving devices e.g. for ovens and furnaces
- Heat exchangers
Our philosophy in delivering these solutions is focused on delivering short paybacks to our client base. We guarantee a payback at the outset of each project, ensuring financial viability. We also offer free installation through shared savings agreements customised to each implementation. Through an ongoing process of innovation we expect to expand our portfolio of solutions significantly going forward.
Efficiency is about far more than technology, and includes operator work practices, maintenance, raw material quality and various other factors. There is however an important role for technology to play in getting manufacturing plants to operate at optimal levels.
VWG actively seeks partnerships with providers of equipment and technology, specifically where these relationships can deliver material benefits for our clients. The idea is to deliver appropriate technology as cost effectively as possible.
Does your business supply technology that can reduce energy and/or water consumption or add value to waste streams? If so, we would like to hear from you.
