Lifting Times – April 2017 Edition

Wish you all a Great New Financial Year of 2017-18. I pray and hope it will be the greatest & most profitable year for all! Also there is a slinking feeling that this may be the last financial year to begin on 1st April! India may change to a “1st January to December 31st” accounting system next year, making it easier for all businesses.

Recently, we were in discussions with a client that one of their factories was facing a challenge of efficient dispatch of material, and proper material handling was a severe bottleneck. Promptly, we sent an application engineer to the factory, nearly 1000 km (620 miles approx) away. He studied the material flow, status of the current equipment, if any, & the dispatch process. We then recommended some small material handling equipment for improvements, namely: 3 nos x Scissor Lifts, a Stacker, 2 nos x Electric Tuggers, 5 nos x Trollies and a Goods Lift.

The impact was immediately evident! The same factory, with the same task force, has managed to produce & dispatch 40% more than than its regular output! We, at Nandan, are delighted to increase efficiency, and in fact, we are hoping that in no time the factory shall be managing upto 70% more output.

It just shows that a small investment in the right equipment, transformed to a tremendous improvement in output, boosting employee morale, while improving safety standards! In fact, if the factory maintains a higher output consistently, the investment cost is actually paid back, many times over!

All in a days work for Nandan! The reason I narrated this story is, because every factory has some areas of improvements where Nandan can contribute to improving. All we need is a 24-hour appointment at your factory.
