OLD BRODLEIANS – Local Rugby Sponsorship

We are pleased to be supporting the Old Brodleians RUFC, a long established sports club based in Hipperholme, near Halifax.
Andy Foulds, Managing Director of Bradford Engineering, who played rugby for 20 years himself, was keen to support a local club.

“It’s a great example of a local rugby club that actively promotes playing members from the age of 6 to full senior teams. It has a successful number of girls playing the sport too, starting with the U13 squad, aptly named the Brodettes.” Said Andy.
“We wish this local sports club all the best for the season, they do a great job in promoting sports to the youth, actively promoting home grown players and offer a great social environment too.”

We are in our NEW Premises

After weeks of building work we finally moved into our new extended and improved premises at the end of September. So the team here at Bradford Engineering Services now reside in offices alongside our sister business, The Electric Actuator Company, but with brand new and separate warehousing facilities within the same location, just under a mile from our original site.

We are delighted to be settling in. The new premises give us increased production and warehousing for the business to accommodate our growing customer base and to house even more stock for the quick supply of bearings, seals and Power Transmission belts to our UK customers.

Cementing Relations….

Bradford Engineering staff were recently asked to help with a tricky problem when their customer was struggling to find specialist bearings. They were for the Lafarge cement works in Derbyshire, who had failing bearings in a large gearbox controlling an important process within the site.
Using BES’s World-wide network of bearing suppliers we were able to supply to their urgent timescale allowing the engineers to re fit the problem bearings on site with little down time for their customer.

Seven different bearings weighing 2.25 tons in total were shipped from Germany, France and Singapore. BES used freight partners TNT to make sure the goods arrived in first class condition and on time.
Another good job done by our experienced technical team at BES.

Growing Wind Turbine Market

Bradford Engineering Supplies has once again secured an order for the Wind Turbine industry, a relatively new but growing market as replacement bearings become required.

Our most recent order, despatched in February was to replace 2 main bearings and sealing arrangements in a VAGAS 44 wind turbine. The unit weighed in excess of 3 tons and required very careful handling, but the BES workshops are set up for such work and are becoming known in the Wind Turbine industry as a good reliable engineering resource to the industry.

With the growth of the Wind Turbine industry in the UK, Bradford Engineering Supplies offer a credible alternative to sending the units back to Europe for refurbishment and our experienced team are becoming more experienced in this market with each order we despatch.
