Case Study: Manufacturing
RPC Plastics / M&H Plastics are one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of plastic moulded fittings – selling their products into the healthcare and food and drink sectors.
The company engaged with SSC to provide specialist cleaning assistance in their huge UK manufacturing base in Beccles; a facility that compromised over 20 different factories, warehouses and production facilities all involved at different stages of the product manufacture cycle.
The team onsite were looking for a contractor that could complete the work without requiring access equipment as previous cleans had resulted in lengthy delays to production while work was carried out as well as extensive damage to machinery in certain areas of the building.
Utilising our ATEX cleaning systems to remove the highly combustible dust and waste products throughout the facility, the team undertook a program of scheduled maintenance across the entire facility.
Our approach of scheduled maintenance in this manner, enabled us to match cleaning schedules up to existing operational downtime throughout the chain and minimise any disruption to productivity. In addition – the SpaceVac methodology required a small team of just two operators which helped to keep costs down, and limit the number of external staff required at any one time.
