Through our commitment to quality, continuous improvement and superior customer service the company has experienced substantial growth enabling us to become market leaders within the industry. This growth has assisted SDL to diversify into new industries and capabilities including mild steel fabrication.

our competitive advantage

Our niche is our ability to provide superior design and manufacturing services through our design engineers and our investment in the latest technology. We are able to deliver products of ‘world class’ standard to just about any industry in any market place.  We are directly involved in the supply of new or re-designed existing products, to both new and established markets and offer a complete service from concept to finished product.

An increasing movement for SDL is that we are helping our customers to focus on their core competencies by allowing us to satisfy the manufacturing and fabrication stages of their value chain.  Often companies have persisted with running small internal fabrication teams that can often be the bottleneck for sales growth and a distraction for management.  We have successfully demonstrated in an increasing number of cases that, what may at first look like a higher cost solution, actually removes a bottleneck which in turn allows for greater growth of top line sales and thereby delivering a better bottom line result.

SDL’s primary focus is to consistently deliver ‘in full on time and on spec’ to our customers.  We are constantly aiming to streamline our processes, reduce lead-times and maximise our productivity through the guidance of Lean Manufacturing and Kaizen principles such as 5S, Total Flow Management and Total Productive Maintenance and knowing there is always a better way to do things. We sustain our continuous improvement initiatives through regular activities such as internal auditing and reporting. 

SDL continually invests in new technology, specialist personnel, R&D capabilities and the development of smart information management systems and processes to enable us to improve our productivity and in turn result in a better quality service for our customers.
