Quotation
& Feasibility Analysis
Bolyer welcome quotation requests for prototype and production components. We undertake feasibility analysis on customer CAD and drawing specifications in order to evaluate if the proposed project is technically feasible and cost viable. We work closely with customer engineers to resolve any identified feasibility issues.

Our experienced project management team work alongside our sub-suppliers to offer the most cost and quality effective solutions to component manufacture bearing in mind customer requirements, production volumes and equipment capabilities. We pride ourselves on a quick quote turnaround and we will provide a formal quotation as soon as possible after receiving all the required information.
What We Do - Step 1
Tool Design
& Manufacture
At Bolyer we have gained vast tooling knowledge over many years of toolmaking and component manufacturing to provide quality single stage and progression tooling. Our skilled network of toolmakers develop tool designs using simulation software to understand tooling operations and reduce potential weaknesses such as thinning and splitting.

Design buy-off enables us to work with our toolmakers to ensure the agreed design will be time and cost effective and that the tools produced will meet Bolyer's press specifications.
What We Do - Step 2
Sub-Supplier Sourcing
& Management
Our toolmakers, raw material merchants, sub-component suppliers and surface finishers are predominantly UK-based in order to offer quick quotation turnaround times for our customers. Locally based suppliers offer a shorter supply chain providing more certainty and predictability of delivery times and lower delivery costs. This in turn allows us to offer competitive lead times and unit prices.

Local suppliers also allow us to be more reactive to customer needs, such as tooling modifications. We are able to conduct regular site visits to our suppliers to ensure timing plans, customer specifications and quality standards are being adhered to.
What We Do - Step 3
Component Quality, Production
& Capacity Verification
Our TS16949, Q1 and JLRQ approved status ensure that this key customer requirement is continually sustained. During tool buy-off we work with toolmakers to confirm that tools are consistently able to produce components to customer specification. We undertake production verification to ensure that all production operations and stages have the potential to produce a consistent product. Capacity verification confirms that we can meet customer declared volume requirements.
What We Do - Step 4
Component Manufacture
& Supply
We are experts in manufacturing steel and aluminum pressings and assemblies. Our capabilities include 20T to 400T single stage presses, as well as a devoted progression press shop which has 80T to 400T coil fed progression lines. Our facility also offers a number of assembly methods such as MIG, TIG and projection welding, clinch nut insertion, self-pierce riveting systems and manual assembly processes.

We have many years' experience in supporting customer delivery requirements and use electronic data interchange to meet daily UK call, as well as supplying customers worldwide. We are on call 24 hours a day, every day of the year to meet all customer requirements including urgent stock loss replenishment and tooling modifications.
