Upgrades and Refurbishments

Almor Wild Barfield provide a range of furnace upgrades and refurbishment of existing furnaces were the cost of capital expenditure for new equipment cannot be justified, on our own brand furnaces as well as other makes. Our engineers work with customers to identify potential areas for enhancement and calculate payback.
