Summary — 


Visit RH Fibreboard before and after they spend £1.1M to increase efficiency and output



This Wellington-based, corrugated cardboard manufacturer has a plan to improve business operations by reducing their internal transport of goods. 

After assessing the inefficiency of their current factory lay-out, the decision was made to purchase new machinery and install a pallet line. This will allow the redeployment of four members of staff to other areas of the business, which will enable them to hit their ambitious growth targets.

RH Fibreboard invite fellow Somerset-based manufacturers to visit their factory now, and again after these changes have been implemented. This will allow a before and after comparison of the investment made, to measure how performance has improved as a result of the new factory layout.

About the Somerset Manufacturers Group

The Somerset Manufacturers Group (SMG) aims to provide opportunity for manufacturers across Somerset to collaborate and share best practice.

An inaugural meeting in Oct 2018 kick-started a calendar of site visits to a diverse range of manufacturers including Numatic International, TMB Patterns, and Coates English Willow; roundtables and workshops on themes such as managing poor performance, skills gaps and apprenticeships; and a focus on facilitating collaboration between members for the purposes of both operational and commercial benefit.
