Eurospray Make The Headlines
Eurospray were delighted to be the cover story for the latest edition of Fife Business Matters. Check out the story below:
Eurospray is Scotland’s largest sub-contract paint finishing facility. Established in 1998, the business is undergoing exceptional growth, and over the last five years, has almost doubled its turnover to circa £2 million and increased its workforce from the mid-thirties to around 60 employees at present.
Quality is at the forefront of the business having gained ISO9001 accreditation within three months of starting up. More recently, it was re-certified to the new ISO9001-2015 standard, being the first paint company to achieve the new standard.
Eurospray’s exceptional quality secured the contract to take Virgin Media’s consumer products that were destined for landfill and remanufacture them to be ‘As New’ again.
This continues to be a key component of Eurospray’s business, working on thousands of units daily, over a range of 20 different product types, including high-speed broadband modems.
In addition, it operates in a wide range of sectors including automotive, electronics, retail, military and aerospace.
Working closely and in partnership with its clients, including Aston Martin, Jaguar, Ford, Ingenico, BAE Systems and Raytheon, has enabled Eurospray to develop finishes that often its customers had not considered, providing an advantage over competitors.
More recently, it has diversified into new markets and since December 2015, Eurospray has been refurbishing the interiors of the Virgin Trains East Coast 125 Fleet and is about to embark on the 225 Fleet.
Mike Strange, Chairman of Eurospray, said: “We are building on the success of our primary business of refurbishing set-top boxes and are now diversifying into new markets. Over the last twelve months, we have been refurbishing the interiors of Virgin Train’s East Coast 125 Fleet and will be starting work on the 225 Fleet shortly. This is an exciting phase for Eurospray and a major area, we aim to develop further.”
Eurospray has supported Virgin Train’s £21 million refurbishment programme, which initially consisted of 17 full trains each comprising of nine carriages in two weekly steady state intervals, something that is unique within the industry and, which attracted a lot of attention from other franchise operators.
Mike added: “We are exceptionally proud of our work on the Virgin Train’s refurbishment programme and to be highlighted as a star supplier on the project was a superb endorsement of the quality of our work. We’re also about to start painting its 225 Fleet, of which the majority is being diverted to Edinburgh for us to undertake.”
The success of its work for Virgin Trains has resulted in follow-up discussions with other train operators to undertake similar refurbishment projects.
Mike concluded: “We’ve a number of significant projects in the pipeline, but we remain committed to continuing to grow over all sectors of industry, through product introductions or refurbishment programmes that are committed to reducing waste.”
