A recent trend in the Wire Industry is that cable manufacturers and wire producers have been forced to downsize their engineering departments in response to economic demands. Consequently, a fully resourced engineering department is now quite rare.
When a major project comes along – for example installing new process lines or refurbishing and upgrading existing lines – it is often difficult to recruit extra staff with any industry experience or process knowledge to man the project. Recruited or agency staff can effectively slow down the department, as the permanent engineers train-up the newcomers or supervise work.
Project Specific Teams
Danross offer a new approach to this perennial problem by supplying a project team from our pool of experienced project engineers, designers and fitting staff to undertake specific projects. The remit and scope of the project will determine the make-up of the team.
This represents a departure from pure consultancy work, where traditionally experts are used on a day rate basis for their depth of engineering or process know-how. The difference is that we undertake definable projects with a clear fee structure.
We can therefore take your engineers out of the loop and free them up to undertake other projects.
Clear Fee Structures
We offer a price for the contract, ranging from an initial design study to a full turn-key job.
Typical projects will include elements of the following:
- Establishing scope of work with your internal customers
