Synergy of the Supply Chain with PSP Group

  • 10 Dec 2019

There are numerous supply-chain-related challenges facing the construction industry today, from various points of contact and complex financial protocols to lack of communication and trust. These problems can jeopardise construction schedules through delays and costly overruns. Here, Chairman Heath Hindmarch explains why PSP Group made a radical decision and vast investment to overcome these issues.

A coherent sequence of operations enables seamless integration of design, manufacture and supply, which can only improve quality and client satisfaction.

This was the founding principle of the PSP Group to ensure complete synergy across its supply chain, extending from the selection of raw materials to the distribution of high-quality finished products.

Only by utilising the skills products and services within its own group of companies can swift communication, enhanced productivity and the best possible service be ensured.

The company’s supply chain in the claddings, facades and specialist fabrications market is mainly connected within the PSP Group, which comprises PSP Design, PSP Architectural and PSP Aluminium.

PSP

Design

In 2016, PSP Group was expanded with PSP Design. This growth enabled the company to take full responsibility for the design, manufacture and supply of full external facades.

The single point of procurement is managed by our internal quality control systems to bring complete synergy throughout the supply chain, allowing us to deliver a complete full-service solution.

Working in co-operation with client supply chains even at the early design stages means that it can enable our design services for fully manufactured PSP products.

This way, bespoke solutions can be delivered from inception to customer-use. PSP uses CAD, Solid Works (3-D modelling software) and Radan (leading CAD CAM software for machine programming) during design phases, all of which are fully compatible with programmes such as Solid Works, Inventor and Design Projects.

Manufacture

As leading manufacturers in our field, PSP work closely with architects, customers and suppliers to build long-lasting, sustainable working relationships.

PSP embraces new technology and cutting-edge ERP software to optimise Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) protocols to achieve aesthetically pleasing aluminium solutions up to 6m in length to the utmost quality to suit applications across commercial buildings, hotels, schools, hospitals and residential properties.

The company’s manufacturing processes take place in our precision-controlled advanced factories in Shildon, County Durham. Its architectural and aluminium manufacturing teams also collaborate with an experienced design team in Cramlington, Newcastle Upon-Tyne to maintain premium quality throughout all processes, from design to manufacture, to transportation of finished systems.

Supply

Adopting a one-stop-shop approach, PSP offers a range of rainscreen cladding, rainwater goods, ventilation systems, solar shading, flashings, pressings and support façade systems.

PSP also design, manufacture and supply specialist fabrications to meet individual needs, using materials such as aluminium, brass, copper, COR-TEN, galvanised steel, pre-coated steel, stainless steel, zinc and composite materials.

During the final phase, add-ons such as curtain walling, windows and doors can be also be supplied. PSP are approved fabricators for Schuco, Kawneer, Reynaers, Aluprof, Raico and Aluk.
