For the third time since its formation, S+S Inspection has moved to larger premises to enable the company to meet the demands of its inspection and material sorting customers. Over twice the size of the previous facility, the new factory provides much needed extra space to accommodate fully functioning test lines for metal detection, both conventional and X-ray inspection, and sorting by material and colour. In addition, the company’s servicing capability has been expanded and an assembly capability will be introduced on the new site.
To support the growing user base, the spares inventory has been increased significantly and more of the standardised systems will be available for quick delivery, especially equipment used by the plastics industry where rapid, ex-stock delivery is often a prerequisite. An expanded test laboratory will allow customer product testing on the RAYCON X-ray, GHF and VARICON food industry metal detection systems fitted with a range of reject mechanisms. Within the near future, test and demonstration lines for plastics contamination detection and separation and recycling sorting will be brought on line.
When complete, the new test and demonstration capability will enable S+S Inspection to offer customers a complete service through real product tests and project capability for all the diverse industry sectors served by S+S. Commenting on the new facility, UK Managing Director, Richard Lines, said, "Despite the current, difficult economic conditions, we have continued to increase sales to all sectors, especially food and recycling, have recruited additional staff and now have the facility needed to meet customer demands. S+S as a group believes in on-going investment and what we are doing in the UK is mirrored throughout the organisation".
