Shifts - Monday to Friday (8:30am to 4:30 Monday - Thursday / 8:30 to 12:00 Friday)
Our client is specialises in the manufacturing of products for the construction market. With over 20 manufacturing sites across the UK, this multi-million pound company have been investing heavily across both their production and quarry sites to help meet an ever increasing market demand for construction materials.
Their Peterborough plant is the largest employer in the group, employing just over 250 people. Consisting of a large operational quarry and semi-automated production facility, this is the only site in the world can produce genuine London (Fletton) Bricks.
The two large kilns, each with 102 individual firing chambers, are capable of holding 62,000 bricks each. Once loaded, the chambers have to bricked up by hand and sealed with clay. The bricks would then stay in the chamber for two weeks, before the temporary wall is dismantled and the fired bricks removed. From there, the bricks must then be palletised ready for dispatch. Production is a continuous process, with bricks taking two weeks to fire. All the chambers are fuelled by Natural Gas.
With the construction industry booming, the demand for bricks has never been higher and as such the business are investing heavily in new and upgraded equipment, plus the training of all staff to help them better meet market demands.
The Maintenance Planner will be responsible planning all Planned Maintenance Tasks within the production area (the Quarry has a separate team of Engineers to look after the Plant equipment). The Production area consists of the Clay Store, which is a large warehouse fed by an overhead conveyor direct from the quarry. The Clay Store allows a surplus of cut clay to be stored depending on quarry outputs.
From the Clay Store, the unprocessed clay is loaded into hoppers and fed by belt conveyor through to the Brick Press Shop. Once the clay has been pressed into unfired bricks, robots would stack the bricks ready for firing with forklifts transporting the stack to the kiln. Both the brick presses and robots are automated by PLC.
The Maintenance Planner will be using the computerised Maintenance system to organise any breakdowns from the previous day and Planned Preventative Maintenance tasks around production runs ready for the Mechanical and Electrical Team leaders to divide out amongst the Engineers. The Maintenance Planner will also be able compiling reports for the purpose of Continuous Improvement.
From time to time, it would also be necessary for the Maintenance Planner to assist Engineers with any breakdowns if Production volumes demand it.
