In Early March we were able to visit the site to see how development of our new factory was progressing. Upon arrival we were happy to see a digger removing topsoil and numerous deliveries of graded stone being dropped off into tidy piles ready to be utilised. The hole for the attenuation tank has now been completed and is ready for the water vessels to be placed inside. This will prevent flooding when heavy rain runs off of our future roof, as the vessels will create a steady flow into the nearby drainage system. The tank will store 40,000 gallons and we have been told that it’s designed to account for a staggering 100 years of climate change. Building with the future in mind is absolutely essential despite what a certain Mr Trump across the pond may say!
We also took a walk around the perimeters of our plot to get a feel for how big the factory will be once completed, and it’s fair to say we were all pleasantly surprised by the scale of the site. It’s always hard to envisage the size when looking at a drawing or plan. We believe the additional ‘8000’ square feet will be of particular great help in terms of storage and warehousing of either customer stock or indeed our own. But the main focus of the new factory is of course the increased efficiency of condensing 3 sites down into one. We believe having all processes and operations in one place will help to create smoother workflows in which lead time will be reduced for our customers.
We are currently working with our team to design these workflows for maximum efficiency which integrates quality control.
This coincides with potential savings which we hope to pass on to our customers as a result!
After 6 very long years of applying, meticulous planning and endless phone calls, emails and meetings we are ecstatic to finally see the goal of moving Remous from it’s humble home of Milborne port to Sherborne coming to fruition. We will continue to update you on our progress as the months tick along via the Remous blog and our social media sites. In the mean time, production runs as normal so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require any Graphic Design, Print, Mailing or general support for your marketing team.
