The procurement of a universal cutting and drilling machine




LSM Multiservices Ltd is the leading thermal insulation company based within the Merseyside area.Insulation is the key to increased energy efficiency in commercial and residential buildings, industrial applications and in the oil, gas and chemical industry. When energy is generated, transported or stored, part of the valuable resource gets lost when the equipment is poorly insulated.
We, at LSM Multiservices, are specialist contractors for the thermal insulation of pipe work and tanks (both domestic and industrial) and in-house sheet metal fabrication.
We have engineers skilled in their chosen fields with over 30 years’ experience, which enables LSM Multiservices Ltd to provide services efficiently, reliably and professionally.
LSM Multiservices Ltd can undertake any size project throughout the United Kingdom and enjoy regular repeat business thanks to our high attention to quality and customer satisfaction; our clients know they can depend on us to find the perfect solution to their thermal insulation needs.


To have the company grow and increase our customer base, we need a universal cutting and drilling machine to speed up the manufacturing process. Currently the metal is cut using hand powered tools and guillotines which limits our productivity.

Deliverable Timescale

We expect the project to commence no later than May 2022 and to be completed by July 2022
Indicative Budget.

The machine required is quite unique and difficult to source and as a result we would expect the price range to be between £100,000 and £200,000.
