Design and manufacture of bespoke stillages for the automotive industry
We predominantly manufacture for the automotive industry and understand the requirements and expectations of this market. Having supplied the automotive industry for many years we have developed a clear understanding of quality, cost and delivery expectations. We can quickly identify and advise on the most efficient and cost effective solution for your needs.
Specialists in stillage design we can create designs from components parts, 3D CAD models or 2d drawings using a wide array of component retention options.
Using cad data we are able to reduce lead times to prototype and can develop stillages ahead of production part being available. We liaise closely with all our customers in order to fully understand their production, health and safety and quality parameters.

We can manufacture:
• Bespoke stillages to our own design
• Build to print stillages
• Standard stillages
• Collapsible stillages
• Textile bag stillage
Manufacture of standard stillages, bins and cages.
For general purpose use we also design and manufacture stillages for general parts storage. Usually medium to high volume manufacture of rigid stackable or collapsible stackable stillages.
Supporting production cell design and layout D&S Material Handling design and manufacture modular gravity fed racking.

Supporting manufacturing with bespoke material handling equipment
Gravity fed racking
To ensure efficient delivery of parts to any manufacturing cell, roller conveyors and line side racking is essential. We manufactured to your specific requirements and will change the design as you see fit after initial trial. Often with these types of products how you think they will work and how they act in practice are very different. We don’t just build and leave you with a problem, we will build, trial and finish to ensure you have a workable product.
If you have equipment, parts, tools or heavy assemblies to move around or in and out of machines then we can design and make the right trolley for you. From small lightweight parts through to 10 tonne assemblies we have designed, manufactured and load tested where necessary to our customer’s specific requirements.
Design and manufacture of workstations for maufacturing cells.
We manufacture fixed size and adjustable workstations for assembly lines or general use. We also manufacture workstations for use in special purpose machinery to tight tolerances.
The popularity of our unique adjustable workstation design is growing. It gives our customers real flexibility for production cell layout and can be adjusted to the optuimum individual ergonomic requirements.
Proven specialists in stillage design.
Specialists in stillage design our expertise trained design team work closely with all of our customers to create design options suitable to their requirements.
We liaise closely with all of our customers throughout the design process in order to fully understand their production, health and safety, quality parameters and logistic requirements.
We create designs from component parts, 3D CAD models or 2D drawings using a wide array of component retention options. Our in house design team is able to show our customers design options in real view stimulations which can help identify obsatcles before the manufacturing stage, reducing turnaround and costs. Using CAD data we are able to reduce overall lead times through rapid prototype developement.
Our market expertise is varied and covers automotive, yellow goods, white goods, glazing, and others. We have designed stillages for components ranging from 'A' surface plastic parts to 1/2 tonne gearbox assemblies.
