Trads, which specialises in traditional radiators and baths, has invested £40 000 in new lifting and testing equipment to meet growing demand for its cast-iron radiators and improve product quality.

Manufacturing techniques include double-paint preparation, the use of CAD drawings and efficient casting machinery.
