With our advanced manufacturing facilities and extensive warehouse capacity at both our Lisburn and Warrington sites, we’re extremely proud of our capabilities as a UK manufacturer and we have lots of customers here in the UK. However, we also supply on a global scale, and ensuring that the right materials arrive in the correct location on time and with all the necessary documentation requires much more than a standard order fulfilment approach; it demands project management expertise.
Understanding Project Requirements
Vantrunk specialises in providing cable management solutions for all kinds of extreme environments, including the oil & gas industry, petrochemicals, rail and nuclear. The diversity of projects we get involved with leverages the company’s 50+ years of experience but no two projects are the same and different geographies have their own requirements in areas as diverse as customs regulations, import duties, health & safety legislation, climate and compliance, affecting both specification decisions and logistics. One thing that all the projects we supply have in common, however, is that both scheduling and budgets must remain on track, which means our customers have to be able to rely on us to manage every aspect of their requirements.
Project Management Expertise
We work with our customers to understand their needs and specify a solution that fits their requirements, and that solutions-driven approach continues in the way we apply our experience to managing their order through the production, fulfilment and delivery process, anywhere in the world.
We support our customers by:
• Advising on shipping quantities and intervals
• Managing production schedules to ensure product is ready for shipping on time
• Managing inspection requirements
• Packing to meet any customer, carrier or destination port requirements
• Compiling all documentation, including ensuring that the right documents are available, in the local language of the destination if required, and with the right number of copies
By working with customers to understand their site requirements, we can ensure that their shipments are staggered in a way that’s manageable in terms of their local logistics and build schedule, without the risk of any site delays. With the size and frequency of shipments agreed, we can then plan our production schedules and put everything in place for seamless packing, dispatch and transportation,.
And, of course, we also keep customers up-to-speed with progress reports at regular intervals throughout their project, providing complete peace of mind that everything is on track.
From the oil markets of USA, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan to the tiger industrial markets of China and Korea, our customer-base is truly global. Our commitment to customers, wherever their project may be, is that they can expect the same level of service from our UK team as they could if we were based on their doorstep.

Vantrunk has always shown dedication to using new and innovative ways to test its Speedway Cable Ladder and Vantrunk Cable Tray to ensure that they can survive in extreme conditions. To this end, Vantrunk’s engineers recently collaborated with the Aircraft Research Association (ARA) to carry out a series of tests on its products.
The tests were carried out using the same wind tunnels that were used to carry out research on illustrious aircraft such as Concorde as well as the Tornado and Typhoon fighter jets. The purpose of the tests was to demonstrate how Vantrunk’s Cable Tray and Speedway Cable Ladder can survive the ferocious wind speeds and extreme conditions that would be produced by hurricane force winds.
Don’t miss the full test report over the coming weeks.
Congratulations to Dirk Van koetsveld of Fluor and Henrik Christensen of Semco Maritime who were the lucky winners of March and April's prizes respectively.
