Reshoring Work


Bowles and Walker is helping with the trend to bring back work to the UK that has previously been carried out abroad, particularly China.
A long established customer OASE (formally Reef One) which produces a large range of high specification fish tanks and equipment had been importing batches of components for its products from moulders in China. Over time they were having a number of issues, quality, batch sizes, time delay and delivered price. By bringing the work back to a UK moulder like Bowles & Walker, they are able to control the supply chain and get their products when they want them with good quality and at a price that is competitive, no more expensive transportation, sending engineers to China to sort out issues and large batches of product sitting in warehouses.
