was founded almost 20 years ago specialising in business improvement and strategic development, targeted primarily toward
operations businesses – for both manufacturing and service sectors.
Founded in autumn 1999 winning our first two contracts with:
Hydrospin Inc (a subsidiary of Luxfer Gas Cylinders) in Huntington Beach, USA. These projects were outstandingly successful
~80% increase in output to meet exceptional demand for stainless re-breather cylinders
Re-layout of main production facility from 3 buildings to one resulting in savings of approximately $1M p.a.
- Alstom Transport Services UK. Facilitation of the development and deployment of the Alstom Maintenance System throughout their UK depots - mainline and
underground. Many successful projects were supported including:
At Stratford Market (Jubilee Line) a ‘pit-stop’ approach was developed for nightly and weekly clean routines, with substantial savings
in expensive cleaning fluids, and improvement in resulting cleanliness and productivity.
The development and roll-out of ‘Process Maintenance’ employing the principles of ‘Lean’ and ‘Flow’ into scheduled maintenance tasks,
resulting in substantial productivity improvements and error-proofing advantages.
Thereafter there have been many projects across a wide spectrum for both manufacturing and service
Some examples of special note:
The development & deployment of the Rolls Royce Production System - as an associate of the WCI Group.
A key member of the team responsible for the development of several Operations Modules
Facilitation of the subsequent deployment with great success in the Bergen Diesels facility in Norway - a project credited with C£2M
The successful introduction of ‘flow’ and dedicated workstation pit-stops for Rail Carriage Renovation
