Specialist Enclosure manufacturer Fibox has been awarded a prestigious order to supply Haigh Engineering Ltd with products from the ARCA range of glass reinforced polycarbonate cabinets.
Haigh Engineering is a specialist mechanical engineering company, who for almost 60 years, has focused on sustainable, ethical, long term business through innovation and expertise in the niche provisions of waste treatment systems to Healthcare institutions and Municipal Water companies.
When looking for a high spec’ enclosure system to house the control equipment for the Control Panels on two new Waste Water products, they identified the ARCA range of injection moulded glass reinforced polycarbonate enclosures as the right solution because it offered a wide choice to meet their varying needs and circumstances.
Haigh Engineering’s Site Electrical Supervisor, Paul Rollinson, explained, “With our worldwide reputation for reliability, performance and efficiency, the company and products we choose to partner with, is vital when providing our customers with the quality products they have come to expect”
“Due to the locations of some of these cabinets, and the vital contents they house; the cabinets had to be robust and easy to clean, yet water tight as well as having to be securely locked. In choosing the ARCA range, the versatility of the Glass Reinforced Polycarbonate material and the cost effectiveness was a major factor. Add to that the fact that the cabinets complied totally with water company specifications, their ease of assembly, and their aesthetic design coupled with the wide range available and the fact that they are much lighter and easier to work with than bespoke stainless steel enclosures, ticked all the boxes.”
Delighted with the prestigious order, Steve Gallon, MD of Fibox in the UK said, “Haigh Engineering Ltd is one of the latest specialist OEM companies to recognise the benefits of opting for the ARCA range of robust, high IP rated cabinets which have all the features of sheet steel and GRP equivalents but with the added benefits of high quality injection moulded technology. - The days when plastic enclosures were seen as a less robust, poor relation to the established sheet steel ranges which dominated the market are now long gone!”
