Bridon Neptune Quay Equipment
Strander
Bridon’s fully integrated investment project considered all
material process flows to optimise capacity. Our enhanced
wire drawing facilities in Doncaster and new, high speed
tubular strander at Bridon Neptune Quay ensure consistent
availability of high quality component wire strand for Bridon’s
manufacturing sites in Europe.
Closer
Our flagship closing machine, designed exclusively for Bridon
by SKET Verseilmaschinenbau GmbH, is the largest rope
making machine in the world. Offering maximum flexibility in
rope construction and manufacture, the Bridon Neptune Quay
Closer complements our extensive Global Manufacturing
Portfolio and allows Bridon to lead the way in the supply of
specialist rope solutions.
Future Expansion
Neptune Quay manufacturing capacity will be enhanced
further by the relocation of a closing machine from the
Doncaster factory and the installation of polymer extrusion
and sheathing line, providing greater flexibility in
manufacturing and enhanced product properties.
