AVT’s new investments drive 20% productivity increase

State-of-the-art production line and lift arm now in place at Air Vent Technology HQ. Air Vent Technology is celebrating a 20% increase in productivity and a significant improvement in team morale following the installation of a bespoke new production line and lift arm.

The investment was made as part of the company’s overall strategy to support the health and safety of its employees – and the continued growth of the business.

Dave Young, Operations & CI Manager at AVT, said: “This new equipment is a major step forward for Air Vent Technology. As the company’s domestic range continues to surge in popularity, it’s so exciting to know we’ll be able to consistently fulfill more orders while enhancing our safety standards.

“Every member of the shopfloor staff has been impressed by the design and workings of the new production line and lifting equipment. Our day-to-day operations are now much more comfortable and I’m confident this investment will help us to continue to go from strength to strength in the coming months and years.”

After a prolonged period of high demand, Air Vent Technology leaders began discussions with Aluminium Frame and Tooling Solutions and Scaglia Indeva in a bid to find the innovations needed to support a sustained uplift in productivity.

A timeline and initial design concepts were agreed early in the process. Weekly meetings with both suppliers, along with regular site visits, maintained that initial momentum. Air Vent Technology’s shopfloor, finance, and R&D teams were also asked for input to ensure all aspects of the project were covered in detail.

Dave Young, Operations & CI Manager at AVT, added: “I’m so proud of how all parties maintained excellent communication throughout what was undoubtedly a complex project. The process flowed from start to finish exactly as we’d hoped. I can’t thank our suppliers enough.”

As well as delivering increases in productivity, the new production line and lift arm will also enable Air Vent Technology’s domestic production team to continue to work at ISO9001 standards.
