Steel shortages are no problem for VALE Engineering…

July 6, 2021

You may have heard about the shortages of raw materials across the UK, especially steel stock. Here at VALE Engineering, we took the decision in March to secure all of the necessary materials we need to continue to manufacture our popular winter maintenance equipment. With some large contracts on board already, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re wanting to secure your own winter maintenance equipment ahead of winter 2021/22.


Reduced availability of stock and high demand has seen prices of steel break records in the last 12 months, that’s why it was so important that VALE Engineering secured the stock to ensure we’re prepared to meet the demand of our customers. VALE Engineering’s current stock levels mean production can begin ahead of next winter, with some machines already being reserved, it looks like its going to be another busy year for our range of winter maintenance equipment.


At our head office in Yorkshire each machine is designed with the end user in mind, whether you’re looking for a high-speed salt spreader suitable for a 4X4 or a tractor trailed salt spreader with the capacity to spread 9000kg of salt. Our unique design makes our machines stand out amongst its competitors as they have the ability to spread wet or dry, brown or white salt, via its unique POZI-FEED stainless steel auger system. Ideal for large contractors, local authorities and businesses wanting to keep their workplace safe, VALE Engineering can offer an effective solution to tackle to hazardous surfaces the winter can create.


So, it’s important that customers get in contact to secure their order with us, whether you’re looking to purchase or hire these machines, give VALE Engineering a call on 01904 738533 or email
