The firm, based in Torquay, Devon supplies the medical, instrument & measurement and electronics markets, increased its competitiveness within a global supply chain and won new orders from work previously sourced in low-cost countries.
Chief executive Colin Spencer Halsey (pictured left) said: “We mapped out a clear, strategic vision for the business and decided on the model we wanted to adopt moving forward. It was the detail of how to plan and implement this that we needed some support with.”
The support came from the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) which helped with a people, systems and processes programme, icluding lean manufacturing, value stream mapping and Six Sigma.
Phil Halse (pictured right), MAS Advisor for Devon, said it had been rewarding to help oversee the company’s relocation and witness its increase in capability.
