06 Nov Halyard Team re-united !
Richard Summers gives his word as the efficiency improvement plan finalises –
“For 20 years, Halyard has had a distribution centre at Whaddon, near Salisbury.
Not any more – at the end of November our distribution centre was relocated to a purpose built facility at out Ferndown manufacturing site.
This concludes a multiyear plan to consolidate the Ferndown and Whaddon activities, which began three years ago when we moved our Sales, Design and Finance team to Ferndown.
To achieve this last step we have re-arranged the shop floor, and installed a mezzanine to provide well ordered storage space.
The move allows us to change a number of processes that will improve operational efficiency, and reunites our distribution team with their colleagues.
We continued production of high quality metalwork throughout the factory transformation and only had to close for shipping for three days as goods were moved to their new home..
Well done to all the team.”
