Autumn 2014

Production prowess

Workers at Strainstall’s Isle of Wight facility in Bembridge have made a colossal 160 mooring hooks in just two months, three times the usual number.

Strainstall's operations director, Duncan Hardiman was full of praise for the five members of staff who produced the hooks for four different projects:

“The work is physically demanding and the team worked extremely hard in hot summer conditions to get the hooks built. The impressive output was only possible because of good pre-planning – we planned the workflow ahead and when the orders came in the hook units were ready to be assembled. This made the jobs considerably easier to manage.”

Bembridge opened two years ago when the manufacture of Quick Release Hooks was relocated from Belgium. Since then, manufacturing processes have been streamlined to increase output and reduce costs.

This allowed the five-man team to complete the record output during normal working hours.
