PSS & MAS (Manufacturing Advisory Service) Project Partnership

MAS_Logo_1_jpg_396x161_crop_q85

During a 6 month period in the second half of 2014 PSS partnered up with MAS (Manufacturing Advisory Service) to define and implement new measures to “further raise the standard” and image of our Remanufacturing Division.  A dedicated project partnership has successfully removed a number of non valued added work activities, whilst at the same time improving even further both the work flow and working environment of our highly skilled technicians. This project has been part of our continuous drive to keep our pricing competitive and our products exceptional.

One of the key highlights delivered within this project include an improved material handling methodology, achieving bespoke component compartments for each of the product types in our Remanufacturing range. The assembly cells have become sectioned off from the cleaning, breakdown, rework and testing areas to provide a clean room environment during the build process. This is critical to the success of our processes and dramatically reduces any threat of particle contamination.

Modern manufacturing companies also consider the environment, and PSS is leading the way in Remanufacturing, with the introduction of plastic only material handling – from dedicated compartmentalized build kits, to the movement of materials and goods around our facility.

We look forward to working with MAS on future projects, as we are always continually seeking ways to improve the products and services we offer our customers.

PSS and UK Trade & Investment Export Projects

Since April 2014, we have been working with UK Trade & Investment on specific projects to further promote our products, particularly into our largest export market, the USA.  This work has gained us valuable new US customer contacts, and has enabled us to communicate that the design and fitment solutions we offer with our Steering Columns and Power Steering Pumps are uniquely suited to specialist off and on- highway Vehicle and Equipment Manufacturers.

Over 50% of PSS products are exported, and we have been exporting in volume since 2003.

We will continue to use UK Trade & Investment as an invaluable partner in our drive for continued and sustainable export growth.
