Fresh Metal raises the bar with parts for award-winning ambulance ramp

April 3, 2017

Full service sheet metalwork manufacturer, Fresh Metal, has provided a series of specially laser cut components to SG Technical Systems for an ambulance access ramp that’s been awarded a prestigious Queens Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

SG Technical Systems, door and access equipment specialists, selected Fresh Metal as the main supplier to produce the laser cut parts for the company’s revolutionary EasyLoad wheelchair and stretcher ramp, which is used in ambulances across the UK. 

The award-winning ramp has a proven track record of being both highly-robust and reliable. These attributes have led to substantial cost savings for operators, as well as ensuring ambulances can be kept in service thanks to the virtual elimination of ramp faults.

Simon Chacksfield, Managing Director of SG Technical Systems, said: “We have a great working relationship with the Fresh Metal team – the expert engineers always deliver a high-quality, reliable service and end product at the right price, which is why 80% of our laser cutting requirements, as well as our fabrication, powder coating and welding needs, are serviced by the specialists.

“Some of the components required for our products, including the SG EasyLoad, are often required at short notice, but Fresh Metal always go above and beyond to service our requirements to an unrivalled standard.

“The Fresh Metal team played a big part in us winning the Queens Award for Enterprise in Innovation and we look forward to working with the team as we move forward to bring further new, innovative products to the sector.”

SG Technical Systems Ltd was set up seven years ago and has been working with Fresh Metal ever since. The company supplies high-quality, reliable doors, access equipment and engineering systems to various automotive markets. 

Charles Corner, Managing Director of Fresh Metal, said: “We’re really proud to have worked on a project that has been recognised with a Queens Award – one of the most prestigious awards a business can receive”.

“With more than 16 years’ experience offering a host of sheet metalwork services, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide innovative metal cutting, pressing and fabricating services under one roof. We look forward to continuing to work with the SG Technical Systems team on other new, revolutionary projects in the future.”
