Phillips Federal Appoints Unison Ltd as Exclusive Supplier

Unison Ltd, provider of all-electric CNC tube bending technologies, has signed an exclusive distributor agreement with Phillips Corporation-Federal Division (Phillips Federal) of Maryland.

Phillips Federal is the principal service provider and manufacturing partner to the United States Federal Government. The agreement means that all U.S. Federal Government requirements for tube bending, pipe bending and end forming machines, that are received by Phillips Federal, will be built by Unison Ltd in the UK and supplied by Unison's Virginia-based North American division.

"Phillips Federal is proud to partner with Unison Ltd," said John "JD" Murray, Phillips Corporation Product Manager. "Partnering with Unison Ltd allows us to provide our customers with the finest options available in the tube and pipe bending market. Their capability and track record with our European allies and international markets make them an integral part of our comprehensive machine tool offering to the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Government agencies. With right-first-time bending technologies, user-friendly dedicated controls and outstanding customer service, Unison Ltd demonstrated the uncompromising standards we demand. Additionally, due to their all-electric operation, Unison machines offer the highest levels of clean manufacturing, something that is exceptionally important to our customer base."

"We are delighted to have been chosen by Phillips Federal as their official provider of tube bending, pipe bending and end forming machinery for U.S. Federal Government civil, military and aerospace applications," said Alan Pickering, Unison Ltd Joint Managing Director. "Our reputation as inventors of ultra-precise, all-electric tube bending machines was a major factor in Phillips Federal appointing us, as was our ability to purpose-build tube and pipe manipulation technologies for many of the world's most demanding manufacturing applications. We are honored that Phillips Federal recognizes the quality and capabilities of Unison machines and look forward to supplying the U.S. federal sector."

Unison's powerful tube and pipe bending machines offer rapid set-up, fast tooling changes, rigid mechanical design and clean, all-electric operation for right-first-time repeat bending, or immediately after producing a trial part. These attributes make them suited to specialist requirements for shipbuilding, aerospace (including traditionally difficult-to-bend exotic alloys), construction, agriculture, oil and gas extraction, food and chemical processing, mining, rail and transport applications.
