Founded on quality craftsmanship and personalised service principles, Wrightform Ltd remains a privately owned business dedicated to exceeding client expectations. With a diverse clientele spanning sectors such as food processing, construction, and agriculture, Wrightform is renowned for its expertise in engineering solutions.

Thank you very much for your hospitality yesterday. It was an excellent couple of hours and we were both very impressed.

During the tours, visitors were given a comprehensive overview of Wrightform’s engineering processes, from raw materials to finished products. Led by in-house experts and sales teams, guests explored the 24,000 sq ft facility, witnessing the cutting-edge machinery and technologies firsthand.

During the tour, one of the standout moments was witnessing Wrightform’s impressive laser-cutting capabilities in action. Equipped with three laser cutting machines, one being a 15kW fibre laser, the company showcased its proficiency in handling various materials, including mild and stainless steel, aluminium, brass, and copper. At various service stations, visitors could view examples of past projects and, in many cases, see ongoing customer jobs undergoing different processes. Each station was dedicated to a specific service, ranging from mobile robots, deburring machines and CNC lathes to metal flattening, forming, and folding. Throughout the tour and demonstrations, the hosts were readily available to answer any questions, ensuring an informative and engaging experience for all attendees.

John Ensinger, General Manager of Wrightform and Wrightfield Ltd, emphasised the significance of these open-day events. “Our open days provide a unique opportunity for visitors to gain insight into our operations and witness the craftsmanship and attention to detail behind our finished products.” “We take pride in our work, and these events allow us to share our passion with our customers.”

In addition to showcasing their manufacturing capabilities, Wrightform highlighted their commitment to sustainability. Installing a nitrogen generation plant capable of providing gas to all three lasers reflects the company’s dedication to reducing its environmental footprint. Furthermore, ducting was added to transfer heat from the plant room into the workspace, ensuring energy efficiency and environmental responsibility.

We have just been to the open day and I would like to say thank you for such a warm welcome and the very informative tour you have provided. Your professionalism and the way you work together as a unit is very admirable.

The positive feedback from attendees underscores the success of the open-day events. “Many visitors were surprised by the scale of our facility and the breadth of processes we undertake,” remarked Ensinger. When we hear feedback about how impressed people are or “how our professionalism is admirable,” it makes it all worthwhile. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to connect with our customers in this way, and we look forward to welcoming more visitors in the future.”
