Keltech "2017 Year in review"
As 2017 draws to a close, it's time to take a breath and reflect on the year as a whole; Keltech has exceeded all growth expectations and closes the year having posted one of our strongest 12 months in our 30 year history. Here are our stand-out moments of the year:
Reservoir Tanks "The Power of Process"
Here at Keltech we manufacture reservoir tanks in all shapes and sizes; from stand alone component tanks to chassis integrated, our reservoir tanks range across all complexities of geometry.
Our Surface Finish; Your Brand
Our global OEM customers appreciate the importance of a high quality surface finish on their products. This is very important to the overall perception of a product and the reputation of the brand it belongs to. In addition to the visual and aesthetic factors, the surface finish plays a direct role in the longevity and quality of products.
Reservoir Tank Cleanliness "HRPO Steel"
Today's hydraulic systems are smaller but more powerful, the demands of oil cleanliness have become much higher. Clean, contaminant-free oil within the hydraulic system is the main ingredient in reducing potentially large warranty costs and extending the service life of components.
Growth Hacking “A Practical Application”
What is growth hacking? Do a simple google search and you will get the usual fandangle explanation followed by the standard Silicon Valley case studies. When reading these its hard to find what relevance there is to a Irish based manufacturing SME but peel all the jargon back along with the “techy type” case studies and you will find that the ethos can be adapted to any business environment, by any business.
“Onsite Gravimetric Testing at Waterford’s Keltech”
On the 14th of June 2017 Keltech officially commissioned its own onsite gravimetric testing laboratory. The lab is specifically designed for the internal cleanliness testing of fuel and hydraulic reservoir tanks, a first of its kind in the UK and Ireland. This is another step in Keltech’s commitment to “reservoir tank excellence”.
At Keltech we have been a trusted partner to globally recognised OEM’s for over 25 years. For the past 15 years we have supplied ROPS & FOPS approved overhead guards and cabins to our OEM customer base whom manufacture machinery for the harshest of environments. Our Cabins are designed and manufactured with futuristic appeal, using our own bespoke curved arrow head profile, curved front windscreens along with sliding or hinged doors as desired to allow the operator have maximum visibility and security.
