Specialising in the design and manufacture of protective packaging, MSA Foams, part of the Peli Group, produces foams that protect components or delicate equipment. Designing foam inserts that are cut to size for individual tool kits has been part of the business for over 20 years. The company is delighted to have been chosen to provide tool control for the Bloodhound SSC supersonic car engineering project. The vital tools for this record breaking attempt on the world land speed record are stored and transported in foam from MSA.
Inserts organise tools efficiently and, using coloured foam, ensure missing items are easily identified, eliminating the risk of foreign object damage. Durable custom foam ensures tools are secured in position and fully protected in transit.
There is a wide range of returnable packaging and protective/presentation cases available. The sales presentation cases have a professional finish, with branding enhanced through corporate colours. Logos can also be laser-engraved with intricate detail in the foam.
The stand at this year’s Northern Manufacturing show showcases the various colours and foam densities available. The in-house design team has created the stand to demonstrate the product range, the design service and manufacturing capabilities to exhibition visitors. The separate panels interlock neatly using jigsaw tabs for the visible joints of the wall’s panels, showing the precision of the foam cutting and finish, in addition to strengthening the connection between the stand panels.
Many features of the stand, such as a complex water-jet cut map of the UK, showing the areas of the business development team, to the laser engraved, precision-cut Aztec design, demonstrate the cutting technology at the 31,000 sq ft facility.

Many companies are now faced with constant pressures to reduce manufacturing costs in a climate of ever increasing costs and lower margins. This has led to a growing realisation within the manufacturing sector that in order to survive and succeed they have to look to outsourcing production. Darian was established in 1986, and claims it has been at the forefront of international global sourcing ever since. Exhibiting at this year’s Northern Manufacturing show, it supplies a wide range of custom manufactured components to leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the UK and Germany.
The company specialises in the supply of castings, CNC machining, pressings, stampings and fabrications as component parts or sub-assemblies.
There are various locations across Europe, India and the Far East, and locally employed staff to support the activities of the UK-based head office.
Outsourcing purchasing provides benefits such as consistent high quality, reliable supply at significantly reduced cost, while at the same time avoiding quality issues, language barriers, unreliable supply, differences in business culture and multi-currency handling, say the company.
A strategic supply partner has made recent investments of three million euros in new pressing lines to increase capacity: 10 hydraulic and mechanical presses with pressing strengths between 63 and 1000 tonnes with automatic feed.
There are also bending, rolling and flanging, modern welding facilities and electrostatic painting booths with an annual capacity of 190,000m2. CNC machining facilities mean that fully finished fabrications can be supplied. Fabrications in steel, stainless steel and aluminium can be supplied and the company has recently been awarded ISO TS 16949.
