Best use of technology and innovation
The technology and innovation award shortlist is testament to our commitment to new technology, quality control and research and development processes implemented throughout the business.
We have invested in the latest technology including a Robotic Welder, CNC Milling Machine, CNC Lathe, CNC Router and Foam Carving Machine (including digital 3D scanner technology).
By investing in the latest technology we have been able to maintain our 4 week assessment to supply cycle. Any new product is tested and quality checked during the development and usually loaned out to clients for testing in the field. Recent product developments include the Equipoise Straddle Seat.
The Environment Award
SOS are environmentally conscious and operate to ISO 14001:2004 standards. All of our waste is sorted for recycling and correct disposal. We also have a crushing machine on site and rain water harvesting systems to further reduce our demand on the local environment.
