One of the primary responsibilities of being a factory or operations manager is to ensure production targets are met, if not exceeded.
Essential to this is the continuous review of production efficiency which may lead to the relocation, refurbishment, or removal and replacement of machinery for more technologically advanced equipment. Another outcome might be a complete re-organisation of the production facility in order to maximise output.
Machinery out of action means lost production, so it is beneficial to the customer that improvement works take place when machinery is not in operation, therefore ensuring production output is minimally affected.
Merritts regularly operate out of standard working hours and can also accommodate night and shift working as well as weekends for moves that are time and/or production sensitive. We offer free site visits within the UK and are available 365 days of the year.
We work for many leading manufacturers, in a multitude of industries including; automotive, aerospace, print, plastics & rubber, food & drink, waste & recycling, textiles and metalwork, providing bespoke solutions tailor-made to the customer’s specific requirements.
Services can include the movement of a single machine to the installation of entire production lines.
