Fast response by Albany’s Bradford subsidiary helped a Bradford firm restart production quickly after a serious fire. Disaster struck the customer, a manufacturer of metallic fastenings for the motor industry, when an oil heat treatment line was gutted by fire.
The company quickly redesigned the process to prevent a recurrence, but urgently needed nine large gear pumps to get the factory working again. Albany was asked to build a batch of Stanhope GJ/GX pumps as quickly as possible. The finished pumps were delivered in less than a week from order.
