Investment continues at Rubbernek with the purchase of a CITIZEN L32 CNC Lathe.

Purchased to compliment the Exsisting Sliding Head Lathes the CITIZEN L32 brought significant benifits based on its modular tooling options.

A turn key package and extensive training of key personel became a " Plug and Play " exercise with the first production pieces being inspected within hours of the machine being commissioned.

The L32 was purchased to meet the immediate order demand for Banjo Fittings , Banjo Bolts and J2044 Quick Connectors all which need to be compliant to ISO , SAE or a specfic customer specification .

Based on Citizen reputation for reliability and service the L32 Lathe will continue to allow Rubbernek to build on their enviable quality and delivery reputation.

Rubbernek Fittings Ltd has won the Cummins EMEA Direct Supplier of the Year Award 2017 by consistently demonstrating all-round excellent performance and exceeding Quality Performance targets for manufacturing plants and aftermarket. The awards were held recently at the Staverton Park Hotel, Daventry.

Rubbernek Fittings has reportedly achieved 100% on-time delivery for its plants, while demonstrating a high level of flexibility in managing demand fluctuations and new product introductions.

Rubbernek Fittings implemented a programme focusing on engineering solutions to offer significant cost reductions for Cummins.

During the Awards ceremony, it was noted that Rubbernek Fittings had demonstrated excellence in all areas of its relationship with Cummins and was thoroughly deserving of the award.

Congratulation to Phil Grindrod who has recently retired from RFL after long service manufacturing our hydraulic and fluid power fittings.

Below is a photo of Phil on his last day stood in front of one of our new Ø52mm capacity sliding head machines.

Phil's planned retirement prompted the recruitment in 2015 of another apprentice to strengthen the Rubbernek team and to ensure the continuity of skills transfer.

Phil's knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed.

Good luck in your retirement Phil from all at Rubbernek Fittings Ltd!
