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. A surge in business in the UK market during the past two years has prompted the purchases to help stay ahead of competitors, particularly from China.

Early estimates suggest that testing capacity alone will increase by 400%. Lead times will also decrease.

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