Manufacturing at Pailton Engineering
Pailton’s production capability is separated into product dedicated and specific component manufacturing cells. Operators from these cells are at the forefront of improvement teams, empowered not just to manufacture to the schedule but also to continuously strive for improvements in the Quality, Cost and Delivery of the product and service using Lean and Six Sigma tools and methodologies.
Flexibility is not only increased using Lean initiatives, but as Shop Floor Data Collection is developed we have gained the ability to instantly track work progress and simplify stock control and issuing transactions using bar coding which was introduced in 2012.
Pailton’s philosophy has always been to offer short lead times for products designed specifically for individual customer needs. State-of-the-art and specialist manufacturing equipment, combined with a wealth of on-site manufacturing knowledge and experience make this possible for our engineers to provide a quality service no matter how big the order.
Pailton’s dedication to the development of the entire workforce and a manufacturing strategy, which includes identifying and investing in new equipment and to further diversify the product range means that new challenges are continuously set and no individual or process stands still for long.
This concept enables Pailton to remain as one of the leaders in the UK and Europe, in design, development, testing and manufacturing of Steering Systems.
All of our manufacturing processes are also available on a sub contract basis.
