As the culmination to its 2016 investment, Williams saw the delivery and installation of two major items of plant and equipment to underpin the company’s policy of innovation and continuous improvement.
The latest in metal processing technology, a new generation of automated sheet metal panel bender, from Salvagnini has been installed at Williams’ Kings Lynn site.
This new investment has been quickly integrated into the existing manufacturing facilities, and is designed to bring a raft of high performance features to uphold the firm’s quality standards.
To compliment the panel former, further major investment has been completed in upgrading the foaming plant to automatically inject Polyurethane insulation into the appliance cabinets and doors.
MD Tim Smith commented: “We have invested over £1.5m in these two new machines, and have a continued investment plan to further support our commitment to constantly improving our products and the lean manufacturing systems that we operate in our factories at Kings Lynn and across the world.
“We have a strong focus on environmental issues, and the recent introduction of energy labelling regulations for professional refrigeration equipment demonstrates the importance of investing in these areas of the business.”
