Assembly

The assembly facility of FPW has continuous assembly lines for Gearbox & Axle assembly. The lines are designed to quickly transfer from one project to another, FPW Axles are known for manufacturing Special Purpose Vehicle axles and therefore our assembly line must be ready to assemble various axle designs at one time.

On completion of the assembly the axles are then packed onto wooden crates, our dispatch team then ensures the axles are delivered to our customers either via our own transport or an allocated forwarder.

 

In addition FPW have a purpose build spray booth which allows us to paint the axles in any colour desired by the customer.

Stores

Our existing clients know that FPW are always at the end of the phone to support in any new axle requirements or to deal with an unexpected issue. Our support and technical expertise are there to provide our customers with the answers to their questions and provide a level of service that will actually resolve problems and challenges, whether it be over the phone, web-chat, via email or an onsite call.
