There are a number of benefits from moving to the Elite process including competitive pricing, reduced equipment costs (hardware can be used for a range of rail sizes and there is less equipment to carry on our trucks), increase in productivity as the process is fast with minimal defects, the flexibility of 2 or 3 piece mould units and all pre-heating equipment is BOC, therefore spare parts are cheap to source and readily available.
