REHAU UK to resume manufacturing at its Blaenau site
REHAU UK to resume manufacturing at its Blaenau site
REHAU UK has confirmed that it has begun a phased return to work at its Blaenau Ffestiniog windows profile manufacturing site.
The facility ceased production on 26th March as a result of the UK Government’s lockdown, with only essential employees, such as security, on the site. In the initial stages, the return-to-work will involve a reduced number of employees on site to meet the current customer demand. At the same time as ensuring, the continuation of social distancing measures and maximum employee safety.
Martin Hitchin, Chief Executive of REHAU UK Ltd, commented: “The first tranche of employees returned to work on Monday 1st June. This decision was taken after extensive consultation between the UK management team, health and safety experts and our employees - and only after a full risk assessment and ‘return-to-work’ plan was devised and implemented.”
He continued: “Our over-riding priority is the safety of everyone on the site. We believe, with our Safe Site plan in place, it will be safe to begin a phased return-to-work, but we intend to closely monitor the health and well-being of our employees during this process.”
Specifically, REHAU UK is providing a return-to-work policy for every employee along with a Safe Site working booklet. In addition, employees are being advised not to car share to work.
Once on site, REHAU UK has implemented the following safety measures for all employees:
01. A full risk assessment has been conducted throughout the site
02. Safe Site working guidance and procedures have been issued to all colleagues
03. Visible signage at all entrances to remind employees of restrictions on the site
04. Temperature recording of each employee upon arrival each day
05. Safe Site induction on the first day for each returning employee
06. One-way system into and around the building
07. Limits on the numbers of people in any specific area at any one time
08. Two-metre physical distancing within the plant and face masks to be worn at all times.
09. Handwashing and sanitising to be encouraged throughout the day
10. Cleaning operatives on duty all day for the continual cleaning of surfaces and facilities
11. All machinery and equipment cleaned and sanitised after use
Mr Hitchin concluded: “We’ve had a very good response to our plans from customers, suppliers and, most importantly, employees who are, in the main, keen to get back to work and resume their normal working lives.”
Rehau's Fensterbau Insights Go Virtual For Wider Industry
REHAU'S FENSTERBAU INSIGHTS GO VIRTUAL FOR WIDER INDUSTRY
Installers and fabricators from across the UK will soon be able to access a virtual series of content initially created for the world's leading trade fair for windows, doors and facades, Fensterbau Frontale 2020.
With the show now being postponed to 2022 due to the global COVID-19 situation, REHAU is working hard to turn this setback into an opportunity for tradespeople. Its investment into digital technologies will allow those who were unable to make the trip to Germany access to all its exhibition insights online, in various formats.
REHAU was due to showcase its commitment to smart technology, and the highest standards of design security and stability when exhibiting its latest product innovations and services. Instead, virtual visitors will now be free to explore the content themselves, but can also receive exclusive insights by arranging a personal 'tour' with a member of the REHAU team, allowing them to receive in-depth information and ask any questions. The core themes will include:
There will be a wealth of material to explore, including new innovations that go beyond profile systems. This includes the new SYNEGO SLIDE system, an innovative sliding door solution, which now offers additional security features thanks to the next generation of REHAU Smart Guard. It will also cover a new array of bespoke system accessories added to its product range, such as the SKYFORCE safety barrier, the new LINEA handle range and a smart fittings solution for folding and sliding doors.
When it comes to intelligent solutions, virtual visitors will be able to find out more about the further development of REHAU Smart Guard, which also encompasses intelligent ventilation and privacy solutions such as REHAU Privacy and REHAU Shading.
Digitalisation and skills
In addition, REHAU is tapping into the topic of digitalisation, providing its customers with new services that can help optimise their processes and address issues such as the specialist skills shortage. This starts with acquiring new customers and extends to after-sales service, as well as planning and fitting. REHAU Connect, Just Smart and Window ID are three stand-out products in this domain.
Within its Window Solutions division, REHAU has set up all its production and procurement processes along sustainable lines and is a pioneer of this approach in the sector. It has been collecting profile offcuts since 1988, ensuring that they are returned to production. In recent years, the amount of profiles containing recycled material has gradually increased from 25% to 40% since 2014, with this figure anticipated to rise to 50% next year.
The sustainable window profiles marketed under REHAU's new EcoPuls label save large quantities of CO2 during production compared to traditional versions, as creating recycled material generates 88% fewer emissions. All in all, this enables 97,000 tonnes of CO2 to be saved annually. This corresponds to savings that could be achieved by a forest of around 7,800,000 trees.
Martin Hitchin, CEO at REHAU said: "While it's certainly not ideal that most of the fenestration industry is grounded at this time, we are hearing more and more from customers that they are using this time to plan ahead and increase knowledge share so that they can come back stronger. As the event takes many months of planning and significant investment, we didn't see any value in holding this content back for a new date. So, instead, we are turning the challenge on its head and broadening the audience, circumventing any travel limitations which probably held many UK tradespeople back from attending. We'd encourage anyone to take advantage of anything they think could be useful."
