Making the most of the summer?

action post

How to use the shutdown period to your advantage. Many UK businesses have shutdown periods throughout the summer months. This can be an ideal time to closely consider your premises and site facilities. Upgrading your existing factory, warehouse or offices by introducing more efficient equipment can pay dividends when your site returns to full working capacity.

A newbie in the making - back in September 2017 Jonathan Ball attended a site visit requested by one of our loyal customers. They wanted us to create a new trolley to help with improving their picking system. This started with an order coming to the operator via a phone headset, picking the goods from the conveyor system, then allocating the order box before transferring it to a trolley.

With the shortest day of the year still to come, dark nights and bad weather make keeping your outdoor areas well lit not just a safety issue, but a security one as well.

Minimising the ingress of snow, ice and mud into your premises is simple if you dedicate an area where staff can change out of winter attire
