Chain-maker enters production in the UK
Published:  09 June, 2015

A Wolverhampton-based supplier of industrial chain has started to manufacture chain in the UK. Donghua, the UK arm of the Chinese Hangzhou Donghua Chain group, has invested in equipment to produce bespoke attachment chain, thus offering its customers more choice and shorter delivery times. It has also expanded its technical workshop.

The business, which was set up in 2009, has been doubling its turnover year-on-year, and now looking for larger premises to cope with demand. The company sells only to OEMs and distributors.

Donghua’s managing director, Bob Wellsbury, says that “designing products specifically for distribution – such as our universal attachment chain which we are now building in the UK – means that dealers are able to offer their own customers greater choice and enhanced availability.”
