Creating a cleaner and safer factory workspace for Warwick Equest
A NECS UK case study
Running an efficient factory requires regular, thorough cleaning. But what happens to all those high-up, out of reach places? Warwick Equest needed a team of fully-trained and competent operatives to remove the build up of dust on the highest lights and beams. Not only is this build-up unsightly, but it can interrupt production and contaminate products when it eventually falls down.
NECS UK has been contracted for specialist cleaning (up to 10 foot in height) in Warwick Equest’s factory for the last three years. During that time we’ve built up a solid and mutually respectful working relationship. So it was only natural that they came to us when they needed this really deep clean.
They also knew from experience that we could complete the work quickly, to a high standard and for a good price.
Our brief was to conduct a full clean of the whole factory walls and roof structure, covering some 8,000sq feet, and reaching a height of around 40ft. Not for the faint-hearted.
We decided to wait for the week before Christmas to take advantage of some shut-down days and to minimise disruption to the factory working routine. This meant co-ordinating with their staff to open and close the facility to give us the access we needed, but it all went like clockwork. The kind of efficiency you’d only expect from a production line.
You can’t clean a 40ft roof without some serious hardware, so we brought in booms and scissor lifts to safely place our operatives where they needed to be. This meant carefully co-ordinating equipment hire, and organising thorough IPAF training for our operatives.
Four of our finest went in for four days, getting the job done exactly to brief, and in the allotted time. Disruption to the factory was kept to a minimum, and our clients at Warwick Equest were more than satisfied with the standard of work, and the manner in which it was completed.
This kind of deep factory cleaning needs to be done about every 3 years, so we’re looking forward to coming back to Warwick Equest for another spotless finish.
