CEL Solution:

Contracts engineering Limited has been successfully delivering 20-30 food processing machines to our client per year for nearly 2 decades. Fabrication of these machines requires high precision and a clean environment to avoid steel contamination. We have managed to do that as these machines were supposed to be used for food processing. CEL used advanced welding equipment to make sure a high-quality finish to the end products. We worked on our client’s instructions for different designs as the shapes for all the machines weren’t the same. The stainless-steel shapes offered by CEL were so impressive and never rejected over the course of 15 years due to our efforts in making these incredible machines. CEL tried to maintain its standards and followed ISO 9001:2015 requirements to pursue eco-friendly norms.
