1 min read

TM Specialist Engineers, a subcontractor offering heavy steel fabrication and large-part precision machining services, is working with MSC Industrial Supply Co (MSC), a national supplier of metalworking and MRO products and services, to help reduce its consumable spend.

Having previously known MSC as a tooling supplier, TM Engineers is now benefitting from the expertise of MSC’s applications engineering team, which is helping it become more efficient and profitable. The project includes analysing the company’s processes to implement optimum production strategies and provide CNC programming support to help convert engineering drawings into CNC code.

Andrew Garton, operations director at TM Engineers, says: “The MSC team is opening our eyes to a better way of working by providing strategic production advice and helping us drive down our consumables spend. We are discovering MSC to be far more than a catalogue supplier and look forward to seeing how much more efficient we will become over the coming months.”

Dave Darby, managing director at MSC, adds: “This is another great example of MSC being a true partner to its customers, transforming the way they operate and helping them realise cost savings and generate more capacity.”

MSC works with a number of high-profile businesses from the aerospace, automotive and precision engineering sectors, including Gardner Aerospace, JW Kane, Arrowsmith and Bromford Industries.
