Adshead Ratcliffe - Keeping up with the sealants

June 2019

Keeping up with the sealants

Whilst Derbyshire was basking in the glorious sunshine in June, Adshead Ratcliffe took delivery of a brand new cartridge filling machine. The machine was easily installed and is now up and running smoothly and enhances the service provided to customers.

The new machine will facilitate rapid cartridge filling of Arbo’s high performance sealants, and removes a bottleneck in the manufacturing process, where continued sustained growth in the production of material was rapidly outgrowing the capacity to fill off the product. In addition the new equipment has the potential to reduce single use plastic packaging. The new machine works three time faster than the previous machine and can produce in excess of 50 cartridges per minute. Additionally, as with all new equipment it requires minimal maintenance and much less setup time reducing the downtime.

Mr Roger Sheehan, Adshead Ratcliffe’s Operations Director added “the new machine is one of our many investments, that will help drive efficiency and help us to serve our growing range of customers globally through improved production and stock availability”.

Adding further Roger commented “Our business is going through an expansion phase as part of the CARLISLE vision 2025. In line with the global strategy of driving efficiency through the COS (CARLISLE Operating Systems) framework, market demands and with the product innovation, this is one of many initiatives.”

Adshead Ratcliffe & Co. Ltd (part of CARLISLE® CM Europe) are the manufacturers of market-leading ARBO® industrial sealants and adhesives for the building, glazing and construction industry. The company has been manufacturing in the Belper area since 1859.

CARLISLE® Academy moves to scenic Belper in Derbyshire

June 2019

CARLISLE® Academy is now housed in Adshead Ratcliffe’s Belper (Derbyshire) site. The training academy was previously located in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.
