Factory Relocation

Project Overview

FPA Ltd were contacted by email to help resolve an issue with a leading filter manufacturing company, they had to relocate to their new location without any downturn to their trading responsibilities and asked for our advice if this was feasible.

Problems identified:

  • No machine could be turned off for longer than 24 hours
  • They inherited the industrial approach to ‘supply on demand’ which meant that stock and raw materials were obtained on customer base orders
  • Timescales were advised on a 27 day completion from start to finish.
  • The factory didn’t just want to move machinery, they needed someone to also move stock, racking systems, raw materials, even the ‘smoking shed’

FPA Ltd from the outset advised them on the best practicable way to approach their challenge, giving them definitive areas to work on first so they would not be curtailed by the move. Between us we looked at slow moving raw materials, customer orders and their committed delivery times, machines that run on so many hours per day and staff usage time.

Using our combined synergies, which meant utilising weekends and out of hours work patterns along with acceptable achievements within the working day, FPA Ltd managed to accomplish a very tight and strenuous outcome for our client.

The result was as predicted, their customer base was not affected, the move went according to plan, and as advised from the outset, the budget that was anticipated was never in doubt.

Client Testimonial

Read what our client said about the project…

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Factory Plant Associates Ltd for a professional job carried out on time and within budget. The timing and planning was done on a very strict programme to relocate our factory into new premises, being able to utilise weekend working patterns and outside normal working hours allowed us to minimise on Company downtime. I would recommend anybody who may require your facilities.

Thank you once again.

Kind regards

Dale Chidwick
