Merging Two sites into One

Project Overview

We had an email from a very well established company that was at the forefront with being an engineering company manufacturing a comprehensive, high specification range of Panic and Emergency Exit Hardware.

They needed assistance with merging their two sites into one location,
Again, the ergonomic pattern to their business were not to affect their customer or infringe on their own downturn, whilst how a workplace and the equipment used there can best be designed for comfort, efficiency, safety, and productivity.

The Issues faced were as follows;

  • We need to continually support and supply our customers
  • Minimise our downturn, whilst retaining our employee support and commitment
  • Work within our budgets and restraints’

FPA Ltd, sat around the table with our client and gave our previous customer experience on how to approach and adapt to there requirements, we advised them that to attack all parameters at once may not be the best solution and in fact, phase the move into more manageable portions even if this meant slowing the process down to confirm each stage was complete and running to expectation.

Project Conclusion

The result was that even though the budget was based on two weeks, it spanned over four weeks to complete, never the less the budget was not infringed, we advised and kept communication with our client and as committed, when we had to return on 3 occasions to line and level certain machines once running that the operative was concerned about, this never hindered our working relationship or subsequently cost our client.

Client Testimonial

Read what our client said about the project…

When we approached 3 companies to quote us on the detailed transition that gave us a major concern, we soon felt reassured that FPA  had experience in supporting our Company.

Other companies for some reason just agreed to what we wanted, it was very refreshing that FPA Ltd, actually questioned us and averted our major concerns and advised us on the best approach.

There attention to costs and timings on the project where very professional, we believed that every additional day or delay would implement additional values. We were overwhelmed by that the honesty of FPA Ltd  showed us an ‘open book’  valuation to how projects were calculated. it demonstrated that phasing in the relocation of machines over a longer period doesn’t necessary mean it costs more to achieve.

I can only add that we were extremely pleased with the work carried out by Factory Plant Associates, we will continue to use there services as required and sincerely recommend their company to others business’s if required.
