Huco Dynatork's has now taken on another manufacturing unit at its Hertford site to cope with the increased workload that has resulted from growth of the business. This move expands the company's manufacturing facility by one-third.
David Lockett, Joint Managing Director, says: "It will allow us to improve production flow and create individual product cells as part of our continuing commitment to bringing sustained order and efficiency to the workplace." The initiative includes process improvement through kaizen, value-stream mapping, set-up reduction and Six Sigma quality controls.
David concludes: "Our expansion will give us better visibility of production issues and improve information flow. Product lead times at Huco Dynatork are already pretty good but we expect this latest move to tighten these even more."
