Applied Weighing provides solid solution for Concrete Canvas
26 April 2012, News release from Applied Weighing International Ltd
As the UK's leading manufacturer and supplier of process weighing equipment and load cells, Applied Weighing was recently tasked with providing a suitable, on-site solution for Concrete Canvas Ltd.
Concrete Canvas has grown rapidly since it was incorporated in the UK in 2005. Having appeared on the BBC's "Dragon's Den" the same year, the company now enjoys a global customer base for its revolutionary products. The products were developed to exploit a unique material technology, which enables the supply of construction solutions that are extremely durable and simple to install.
Concrete Canvas is the only way of laying a thin concrete layer from a prefabricated roll of material. This enables up to 150mm of poured concrete to be replaced with just 8mm for many surfacing applications. As a result, material saving of 95% can be achieved for a typical construction project. This directly reduces the CO2 footprint of construction work not only through material savings but also through reduced road transport and time on site.
By priding themselves on innovation, quality and responsiveness to customer needs, Concrete Canvas sought equal assurances from prospective weighing system suppliers regarding the products and services they had to offer. With over 20 years of experience, Applied Weighing was identified as having the most suitable credentials for the undertaking.
"Applied Weighing had already been recommended to us by our automation engineer" explains Martin Carlsson, project engineer at Concrete Canvas. "We looked around, but Applied Weighing offered a cost efficient solution that suited us completely. They had just what we needed."
He continues, "From the outset, they were very supportive and able to provide the right assistance to ensure that we had the best equipment for the job. We urgently required some help on one particular weekend and they made sure that this was given to us, which was great from our point of view."
