The winners of these awards which celebrate the best in Welsh manufacturing, product development & design will be announced on 4th October. A delegation from Rhino Products including several key design, production and operations Directors and Managers will attend the awards ceremony at a black-tie event at Cardiff City Hall.
We are particularly pleased to be recognised as one of the manufacturers of year as our production processes are something that we have always prided ourselves on but an area which has undergone significant investment in reason years.
Our 55,000 sq ft factory in Deeside, Flintshire has been through some radical changes in the past 18 months with the incorporation of several new product lines following the company’s acquisition of AVS Steps. A mezzanine floor and a second lean lift were area were added to the production area to accommodate the rapid growth of the business over this period.
Further investments in Deeside this year have included a new conveyor and wrapper system which has seen big improvements in production throughput and a 3D printer used by our experienced design team to help with new product development and other cutting edge projects.
However our biggest announcement regarding investment into our manufacturing processes came with the news that we will be opening a new custom-built factory nearby to our current facility (which will be remaining open) to help meet our ambitions expansion plans.
We have also made great progress in the past year with our ISO certifications achieving both ISO 14001 for our environmental procedural practices and transitioning to ISO 9001:2015 for our Quality Management System.
We’ve all got our fingers crossed for the awards evening next week…
