Our client is specialises in the manufacturing of products for the construction market. With over 20 manufacturing sites across the UK, this multi-billion 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 Desford site produces both extruded Red Bricks as well as Buff Bricks. Currently the site produces 90 million bricks per year, however the site is currently having the production plant upgraded to be able to take total production up to 100 million. This multimillion pound investment is to help meet the ever increasing demand for both the Red and Buff Bricks.
To help meet market demand, the Business have also invested a large sum of money in a fully autonomous computerised PPM system as part of their nationwide LEAN manufacturing and Continuous Improvement drive. The hope is the extra production capacity in the plant and an increased line availability will help them meet the current orders. The new system is due to come online in the next few months following final testing.
The Mechanical PPM Engineer will be working alongside the normal shift engineers, primarily focused on PPM tasks. This would include general greasing, strip down and rebuild any mechanical systems on the plant including Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Rams, Cylinders, Valves, Actuators, Bearings, Rollers, Chains, Sprockets, Tensioners, Compressors and Pipework as part of the PPM schedule.
Most parts would be exchanged like for like from Stores (95%), however occasionally it might be necessary for the Mechanical PPM Engineer to fabricating or machining a new component. Production equipment includes belt and chain conveyors, clay mills, extruders, wire cutters, robots, palletisers and shrink wrappers.
With the drive towards LEAN manufacturing and the new PPM system due to come live shortly, the client is looking for someone who is not just going to keep replacing parts over and over again, rather look for a better long term fix (e.g. - one of the Electrical teams design and built an electric, rather than hydraulic, turning head after multiple hydraulic failures).
