The BBC’s documentary series ‘Inside the Factory’ is coming to South Wales and the episode to be screened at 8pm on the Tuesday 16th August on BBC2 features Euro Quality Coatings as they play a key role in the manufacturing of the famous Brompton Folding Bike.

This part of the documentary series looks at Brompton’s production life cycle from the initial delivery of the raw materials for the bikes, through the various stages of production and ultimately see’s the finished product (in this case) wheel out the door ready for sale and or immediate use.

EQC have worked in partnership with Brompton since 2011 and this successful arrangement has seen tens of thousands of folding bikes traverse the M4 from London to Cardiff to receive EQC’s specialist electrophoretic and powder coatings coat the bike frames both internally and externally before returning to London for final assembly.

These procedures form the best anti-corrosion protection currently available on the market and is the same as that used in high end automobiles, military vehicles and everything from mass produced cars to model train tracks.

Sales Manager Dave Morgan takes show co-host Cherry Healey through the electrophoretic coating stage, detailing the benefits of the 11 stage immersion process during the programme before Managing Director Steve Rosher explains to Cherry how the powder coating compliments the earlier treatment and how inspection of the finished procedure is so important to maintain EQC’s high standards. Once the bikes are returned to production facilities in London co-host Greg Wallace assists in the final assembly of the Brompton Folding Bike.

EQC are proud to be a partner of the UK’s biggest independent bike maker and it is believed that the anti-corrosion methods employed by EQC during the bikes production using Architectural Grade Powder Coating after the electrophoretic coating stage is unique to the Brompton Folding Bike, giving the best possible protection from corrosion no matter where in the world you and your bike are.

This episode of ‘Inside the Factory’ takes an in-depth look at EQC’s facilities and shows just why the Electrophoretic and Powder Coating plants are the leading sub-contracting plants in Wales and amongst the best in the UK.
