May 2013

2013 started with a bang. Cape Lambert has kept us fairly busy with several of our main suppliers requiring bracketing and cable tray components.

Our range of cable drum frames has proved very popular with multiple orders on all sizes. To this end we have developed a brochure and price list detailing our most popular stands. Outside of the standard range we have also made frames designed to be unrolled by forklift for underground work and frames designed to both transport cable drums on the back of a truck as well as for onsite use. If you can’t see what you want in our range please contact us to discuss your requirements.

In general things appear to be quieter than last year with many of our clients hunting for new projects and having to tighten the purse strings to pick up tenders.

Tenders – If you need pricing for a tender please contact us. We can “ballpark” some items for you or fully quote if you have drawings and quantities available.

Galvanised Steel Sales – Pricing remains consistent – an up to date price list is attached.


We are looking for work

After a busy start to 2013 we have slowed down and we are currently looking for steel fabrication work.
