Verderflex has considerable manufacturing aptitude and its Basildon factory exemplifies the company’s ability to design and manufacture special tube pumps. Its application knowledge and production investment provides a unique resource for OEMs and systems integrators alike to specify pumps with non-standard characteristics.
Best manufacturing practices are assured at the Basildon factory thanks to the adoption of proven business tools and techniques for lean manufacturing. The company has implemented programmes to bring sustained order and efficiency to the workplace and the initiative includes process improvement through kaizen, value-stream mapping and quality control.
Verderflex Basildon has also just received ISO 9001:2008 certification, a status that the company anticipates will open doors for new business. MD John Watkins commented, “Reduced lead time, assured quality, greater operational efficiency and now ISO compliance are all important components in giving competitive edge.”
