Taylor increases capacity with relocation

Taylor has relocated its wheeled waste container rebuild and repair service to a new purpose built facility in a move designed to increase capacity.

As part of a £100,000 investment, the operation will move to the firms Oak Park manufacturing headquarters in Worcestershire, in an effort to increase capacity to 1,000 rebuild units per week and reduce turn-around.

Taylor chief executive officer Peter Selkirk said: “Our rebuild service is an important added value part of the ‘Taylor offering’ to its customers. It makes sense for this part of the business to be integrated into Taylor and not to operate, as before, as an independent unit.

“The effect of integrating the operation has been dramatic. It has allowed us to invest in new processes- the new drying oven enables a fast through-put of containers and, equally important, it allows us to use environmentally friendly water based paints.”

The rebuild business has been operating for over ten years as an independent division of Taylor and was initially set up to maintain and repair Taylor products with genuine replacement parts.

The service also extends to rebuilding and maintaining most popular makes of waste and recycling containers used around the UK.

Selkirk added: “As we now have increased capacity, we are able to turn around rebuild containers within five days and all round operational logistics have improved.

“This includes transportation of containers to and from customers and also the logistics of handling materials such as spare parts between manufacturing and rebuild operations.”
