A successful first BPF meeting for the Molders & Specialist Processors Group.

14 November 2016

On 10th November 2016 the BPF Moulders and Specialist Processors Group held their first factory tour and networking event in Amaray’s facilities in Corby.

The event gave attendees a unique opportunity to learn about the Amaray approach, how the Amaray business started, and how it is well on the way to successfully diversifying into new markets via new, innovative packaging. During the factory tour, attendees experienced first-hand Amaray’s high volume, highly automated and highly efficient plastic injection molding processes.

In addition, Andy Hodgson of Siemens delivered a comprehensive presentation on Industry 4.0.

Paul Groenestein, group business development manager of Goodfish said: ”The Siemans analogy and explanation of Industry 4.0 and what came before helps anybody understand the process. Simulation and other system generated processes will continue to move businesses forward in the future, but they will still not take away that human input into a new project or task that technical managers can offer based on years of experience. It was also a very useful experience to tour the facility and see the automation and warehouse system in place.“

Jamie Tinsley, managing director of Amaray remarked: “We were delighted to hold the first networking event in Amaray Corby. Bringing different people and insights from various areas of the plastic industry promotes collaboration and positive thinking. This is what the Amaray business is all about: Amaray is focused on making good things better.”

Andrew Beardmore, operations manager of Mauser UK Ltd said: “The site is well laid out and the management team very forward thinking, the tour helped us to refresh our approach and inspire us to develop our own business further. I would certainly recommend this tour to others.”

Paul Keeney, operations director The Stewart Company said: “Invaluable information on Industry 4.0, which people to need to recognize is the future of manufacturing moving forward. Also great to see Amaray setting the high benchmark standards in automation, health and safety and housekeeping. A very worthwhile and informative day.”

The BPF is delighted with the feedback from the event and is looking forward to inviting its members to the factory tours being organised for 2017.
