Just a few clicks is all it now takes to calculate your timber treatment costs.
Dolphin Bay has provided a valuable new service by including on its website a Treatment Calculator. Simply click here and fill in a form listing your monthly production volume and a detailed breakdown of timber treatment plant costs covering such expenditure as construction, power and water, maintenance, labour, handling, depreciation, preservative uptake, and consumables. Then click "Calculate".
The Dolphin Bay Treatment Calculator is an illustrative cost programme that will provide an indicative estimate of your final unit costs of treated timber. If customers require help or more information, they can contact a Dolphin Bay sales representative to guide them through the Treatment Calculator process.
“We decided to develop the Treatment Calculator because so many people ask us for costing advice and to check their costings,” explains Dolphin Bay MD Bertus Coetzee .
The service, he says, will provide existing and prospective plant operators with a calculation of their economies of scale. “It shows that if you increase production you can get up to 30% savings per unit by making improvements in utilisation of assets, training of operators, handling of materials and maintenance of equipment.
“We strongly recommend our customers and potential customers to contact our sales representatives to assist them to get maximum benefit from the Treatment Calculator.”
For more comprehensive support, adds Bertus, existing and potential customers can use the Dolphin Bay Assistance Plan through which technical experts will assess their operations and provide advice on how to optimise timber treatment for maximum efficiency and profits. Dolphin Bay technical experts will also prepare a plan to implement specific remedial actions, and monitor progress.
