Rapid-response capabilities for cable production

Canford has made significant investments within its manufacturing facility in order to cope with a growing demand for bespoke cables, as well as other own brand manufactured products such as the extensive family of mains distribution units (MDU), Tecpro intercom, EMO stage crew equipment and Panamic boom poles.

The first major change was to create a Rapid-Response Cell for cable production which was developed to allow both custom and standard cable assemblies to be quickly produced, reducing customer waiting times. Depending on cable type, cable assemblies can now be produced, packed and ready for same day despatch*

Building on the success of this Cable line, similar cells have now been introduced for other product lines that have benefited from increased output and reliability. The MDU cell has increased average unit production from 21 units to 38 units per cell, per day. Other cells include Tecpro and EMO with further cells currently in the planning phase.

Other initiatives include the creation of a looming station, where all internal wiring components are prepared and tested in advance of build-up, and an upgrade to the planning system.

The combined effect of all these changes has not only increased production capacity, but has seen the company’s production scheduling maintain a 100% (on time) completion rate for over four months.

Customers have driven these changes by increasingly relying on Canford as their preferred supplier and it is gratifying to see our hard work pay off. John Slider, Canford CEO.

*Same day despatch when you order before 12pm. Subject to stock holding of non-standard cables and connectors.  Appropriate lead time required for large project orders.  A standard £8.00 delivery charge will be applied to all orders below £100.00, otherwise carriage is free.
