Globalisation and new technology innovations are driving an ever evolving business environment. To ensure that we are responsive to changes in industry and continue to meet customer demands a philosophy of continuous improvement underpins all our activities.
Formalised best practices such as 5S, Lean, Visual Management are used to identify opportunities for maximising the utilisation of our production resources – people, skills and machinery. These operational methodologies enable us to streamline the manufacturing environment, increase efficiency and to eliminate waste.
As the company has grown we’ve implemented manufacturing systems to manage the flow of manufacturing data and business information both locally and throughout the Group. Integrated MRP, CRM, APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling), shop floor data collection, resource monitoring and performance analysis software systems ensure that we operate in an information rich business environment.

- Faster response to their requirements
- Improved order cycle times
- Improved quality of output
