‘Our Reputation is our Quality’
CME Boilermaking has always promoted quality for our clients, quality in workmanship, quality in service and value for money. As a company we look at ourselves and realise we are in the business for a long time not a company that closes the doors when times get hard.
We continually review our business processes and practices to ensure that our clients receive the best quality products and services.
Pricing – Supplier
Due to our long term relationships with our suppliers we have the benefit of being able to negotiate on product pricing ensuring we get the best price for product. It is our policy to pass these savings on to our clients. We also complete thorough market research to ensure that the prices we are quoted is the least costly. We also look at the quality and back up of the products as the cheapest isn’t always the best quality, but we always present the client with the options and explain the difference and why we go for a particular product.
All work is completed off quotes and if the scope changes we can requote the variances or complete it at a cost plus.
Fixed pricing for existing jobs – We have a system with Flexi-parts with the track frames cannon and bogies that some of the costing is a standard price as the scope and repairs is very consistent and our people have become very efficient at completing these task.
Quotes are continually reviewed an updated to ensure any cost savings are passed on the client.
All quotes are e-mail to the relevant person on PDF and we are always happy to discuss costing and revisit quotes if required.
Tradesmen & Apprentices
Overheads are kept to a minimum by running the company efficiently and ensuring our workforce is diverse and skilled across various aspects of welding and fabrication. As such work can be completed in house with no requirement for external contractors.
Our people also understand that we cannot afford to pay over the top wages and that it is more about consistent work from the clients that see the company through difficult times and them with long term jobs with this attitude we have maintained to work and pay or guys 10 hours per day 5 days a week to keep on top of our work load. CME Boilermaking employs an independent company named Employsure who look after all our employee agreement and handle all our employee grievances.
Through this latest down turn we have been able to bring on one of Westrac’s Boilermaking apprentices that were laid off and give him the opportunity to continue his apprenticeship. Our hourly rate to our clients has not changed even though we have endured some difficult times and we believe this has held us in good stead with our clients who have continued to use us during the latest down turn.
Peter having training experience he understands the importance of continual training so we have a long standing relationship with CCI and the local training institutes. As such CME Boilermaking takes on 1 to 2 apprentices a year and our policy is to dismiss our apprentices after they finish their apprenticeship so they go out and get more personal experience as a tradesperson. CME Boilermaking is dedicated to training both our current workforce and the future workforce, we always endeavour to place school based trainees in our work place. We have had agreements in the past with other clients were they sent there apprentices to us for further training and experience so they could get experience and pressures from a suppliers aspect.
