Maximising efficiency and process cost reduction ‘ is the overriding message from SSI Schaefer to all manufacturers attending Southern Manufacturing 2014.
SSI Schaefer, the UK and world’s leading provider of automated materials handling and integrated storage solutions, returns to Farnborough to provide manufacturers with hands-on advice and guidance on a range of innovative, yet practical Lean Manufacturing processes and practices to boost productivity and reduce costs. The company will be focusing on materials handling, assembly and component containers, component presentation and line feeding.
Aaron Thornton, National Field Sales Manager, SSI Schaefer, said: "Every warehouse manager and production line manager is looking for ways to maximise efficiency and improve productivity levels whilst driving costs down. However, all too often there is a lack of time or resources to justify the changes needed to develop a streamlined, flexible solution to achieving such gains.
"The integrated approach of the Lean Manufacturing Group brings together a wealth of disciplines, experience and expertise needed to devise and implement tailored, practical and efficient lean manufacturing solutions to help manufacturers improve their efficiency, competitive position and profitability. In essence it’s about working with people, upskilling workforces and providing them with the knowledge to move forward with their own lean journey."
