The Worcester, Bosch Group is the market leader manufacturer of ‘A’ rated condensing boilers and renewable heating technologies for the home.
When the manual conveyor system needed new carriers to suit new product models at the Worcester Bosch Group’s manufacturing plant, LB Foster Materials Handling was selected to deliver the project.
By manufacturing 29 new boiler carriers, LB Foster was able to provide a system which was more compact and easier for staff to operate. The carriers produced for Worcester were installed as part of the manual conveyor system within the assembly factory.
Will Halcrow, production engineer at Worcester commented, “We were very satisfied with LB Foster’s flexibility and support in terms of various changes to the initial requirements which are inevitable during a change process, this was managed well by Abby Sharpe. As you can imagine there are many complex activities that are necessary to produce a highly spec’d product such as our Which? Award winning Greenstar boilers. We focus on each process in turn – even the solution that LB Foster supplied for holding the boilers in place needed to be efficient and robust.
