APS Metal Pressings Ltd

A long-standing client of Microtrading, this world-leading manufacturer wanted to enhance the IT infrastructure it was reliant on. We introduced virtualisation technology to reduce hardware costs and increase business continuity, coupled with award-winning IT support.

APS Metal Pressings is a world-leading manufacturer of precision metal pressings and metal stampings, supplying a range of industries including Automotive, Construction and DIY. As a highly automated and ISO accredited operation, committed to taking advantage of the latest technologies, APS depend heavily on their IT systems to reliably support the business.

Microtrading has supported APS since 2007, helping them evolve their IT systems to maximise productivity and underpin the business growth. Recently, we implemented a new Virtual Server platform running Windows Server and Hyper-V technology. This uses two physical servers with the virtual machines replicated between each of them to maximise system uptime and manage production workloads.

“We have been well supported by Microtrading since 2007. We really appreciate the time they take to understand our business and what we require from our IT systems. Recently, they recommended a new Virtual Server platform, clearly explaining the benefits to APS and when we took the decision to go ahead, they managed the project delivering in full, on time and on budget with the minimum of disruption. We regard Microtrading as part of our team.”
