Case Study: GWR Engineering’s Precision Pressings Empower Eldapoint’s REBs

Precision Engineered Steel Panels for Eldapoint Ltd. Relocatable Equipment Buildings by GWR Engineering

With over 35 years of experience, GWR Engineering is a leading provider of pressings and formed metal sections. This case study highlights our collaboration with Eldapoint, supplying them with high-quality Zintec steel panels for their REBs units. These units were intended for use on the UK Rail system, making high specification and quality imperative.

Eldapoint faced a challenge in sourcing numerous shapes and sizes of pressed panels that would be suitable for fabricating their high-security Relocatable Equipment Buildings.  These panels had to be durable and precisely engineered Zintec steel panels.

The panels needed to be robust, precisely sized, and delivered within a tight schedule.
