Ten years of success in the Middle East oil supply chain for UK based Dugard
We're famous for our comprehensive selection of machine tools - with the widest range in the UK of horizontal and vertical lathes, machining centres and borers. As well as the extremely popular Dugard range, we also represent Samsung Machine Tools, Hedelius, You-Ji, Tos Varnsdorf, MTE, Chevalier and Edel. The Dugard brand itself is represented worldwide at our offices and showrooms in Poland, Russia and UAE as well as through an extensive dealer network all over Europe.
Dugard were one of the first European based companies to offer machinery in the rapidly expanding Middle East machining sector over a decade ago. Since then, we've have steadily increased our presence and reputation as one of the leading suppliers of Vertical and Horizontal Borers, and CNC Horizontal Oil Lathes. With over one hundred large capacity machines installed through four countries in this quickly developing region, Dugard are in the position to offer a the total package - with local service and sales support also available to all our Middle East customers.
The foundations for our rapid growth in the Middle East were laid by experience gained over more than 70 years, as we've been supplying high quality, high value products to customers in the UK and Europe since 1939. This extensive experience and expertise afford Dugard Machine Tools the luxury to be able to forward order large machinery (perfect for the energy industry) – which means we can react quickly to changing customer requirements and needs.
Dugard have engineers regularly installing large capacity machinery – not only in the UAE but also throughout the UK and Europe. Therefore we're ideally placed to offer advice and solutions on a wide range of CNC and Manual machine tools. One of the brands we've enjoyed particular success with is the Tos Varnsdorf range of CNC and manual boring machines and both table and floor borers. The WHN 13.8 CNC borer has been our most popular model, first launched in 1969, with production now exceeding 2,500 units, a major up-date took place in late 2011. The selection of boring machines from Tos Varnsdorf is extensive, ranging from the small manual W100A right through to 20-metre traveling column floor borers incorporating auto change heads.
Also widely supplied to the oil service sector is the You Ji range of CNC vertical borers. You Ji can supply machines from 250mm table diameter all the way through to the latest hydro-static, seven metre diameter C-axis table, twin ram, driven tool machine. You Ji is the largest vertical lathe manufacturer in Taiwan, enabling them to ensure constant production of their highly respected products. Such production rates are obviously beneficial for us as You Ji can always meet our demand.
The combination of TOS Varnsdorf Horizontal Borers, You Ji Vertical Borers and a large range of horizontal lathes (including both Flat-bed and Slant-bed machines with large spindle bore options up to 610mm diameter) available from Dugard makes us the perfect machine tool partner whether you’re UK based or investing off-shore. The need for a fast, professional solution is increasing all the time, with multi-machine orders rising significantly in the last two years – a recent project in Qatar resulted in Dugard being the sole supplier for an impressive machining facility of 14,700m2.
