Justin’s goal upon joining Novoferm was to find a way to make Novoferm work smarter, not harder. The quote, originally spoken by Allen F. Morgenstern in the 1930s, refers to having a clear strategy, prioritising the most important activities. In doing so, employees feel satisfied at the end of each productive day rather than overwhelmed, overcommitted, frustrated, and overworked.
So, how does Novoferm seek to accomplish this?
The company will be investing half a million pounds mostly into the front end of the business to reduce bottlenecks. This investment will help double capacity and includes the procurement of new equipment, such as a weld chiller that improves quality and weld area efficiency. Other purchases made, to be commissioned in the second half of 2021, include a new roll former, and a canopy pierce jig.
The investment wasn’t just for equipment either. Novoferm have committed to increasing the assembly table area and have added a second paint line, raising capacity and ensuring a human element remains present during the process. By the end of 2021, the company has committed to replace older machinery, add even more capacity, and double up on equipment and manpower.
All this leads into delivering quality and reliability, ensuring that customers get the right product the first time around.
