Cutting, slitting, sheeting and heat sealing of woven and non-woven material
At Keenedge, our customers are the focal point for anything we do, whether that be a single’ R and D’ roll project to a monthly container full of material we aim to deliver the same outstanding quality you have come to expect from us. As well as delivering high-quality slitting and heat-sealing solutions, we offer other helpful services such as warehousing, stock-control, logistics and a friendly voice at the end of a telephone.
Keenedge Ltd was founded in 1983, from humble beginnings the business has grown and now occupies premises of 20,000 square feet in the beautiful Lake District area, of Cumbria, which gives easy access to the M6, just 5 minutes from the premises
Cutting, slitting, sheeting and heat sealing of woven and non-woven materials is at the core of our business and we provide these services to a wide range of industries. But that’s not all, as part of the wider solution we also provide ancillary services such as warehousing, stock control, traceability, bespoke packaging and the organising of transportation and delivery.
We take a flexible, tailored approach to meet your requirements and save you time and space with cost-effective solutions. If for example you have goods that need slitting in batches, we can warehouse the material for you, processing and dispatching the required amounts direct to the end user as and when you call it off.
Keenedge can take your product to convert, label, pack and ship to your end customer using your exact specifications with no reference to Keenedge. So, if capacity is a problem we are more than happy to operate as a sub-contractor.
In an increasingly competitive market, Keenedge firmly believe in building a strong bond of trust between ourselves and the customers we serve. Discretion and confidentiality are at the heart of that ethic. Keenedge are happy to operate under the stipulations agreed in customer specified NDA’s.
We have just recently celebrated our 35th year in the business and in that time have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience that helps us to provide the best and most efficient services for our customers. Delivering high-quality results is of the utmost importance to us and because of our commitment to quality and process management, we have achieved ISO9001 Quality Management accreditation.
