Continuous improvement for Britplas Fabrications
Following another year of record sales, Britplas has modified the layout at its 42,000 square foot Warrington fabrication facility in order to further streamline its manufacturing operations and cope with increased demand going forward. The changes have been designed to help ensure continuous working lines for both aluminium and uPVC, with a newly consolidated façades area dealing with curtain walling and door orders.
The Britplas factory manufactures the company’s patented Safevent window, allowing for tight quality control of this specialist product, and is also now set up to deal with the various different product types and systems required by the wider commercial facades market. A number of factory staff have been cross-trained, and supplemented with specialists brought in to ensure we remain at the forefront of manufacturing best practice.
The new modifications mean that lines can be adapted for free flow of product on any given day, with the following results already achieved:
- Improved workflow
- Adaptable workforce
- Efficiencies expected to be plus 20%
- Designated visitor route with information points
- A safer environment to work in.
Further amendments will continue to be made as we look to adapt and optimise to keep providing the best service possible to our customers.
