Leading UK heat exchanger manufacturer European Heathyards has forged new links within the mining and iron ore industries following the recent completion of 24 heat exchanger units for an international process technology company. The manufacturing process has occupied more than 40,000 man hours over a 52-week period at the company’s site. The heat exchanger units vary in

size with the largest measuring 4.5m x 3.5m x 8.0m and weighing in

excess of 35,000kg. Manufactured from stainless steels (grade 304H and 310H) and Incoloy (grade 800HT) these specialist units are used to exchange heat within the direct reduction of iron ore and have been produced and quality tested in accordance with ASME V111, DIVISION 1 and ASME U-Stamp. The finished heat exchangers have been inspected by Lloyds Register and SQS. European Heathyards specialise in

high integrity fabrication, welding and tube manipulation and its 100

The Sword of Honour was awarded to the ByBox Coventry Distribution Hub by the British Safety Council (BSC) in recognition of the very high standard of health and safety measures it has successfully implemented. The Hub is one of just 61 organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour awarded to organisations that have demonstrated excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work. In order to compete an

organisation had to achieve the maximum five stars in the BSC’s health and safety management audit scheme in the period August 2014-July 2015. They must have demonstrated excellence in health and safety management from shopfloor to boardroom to an independent panel of experts. The ByBox Coventry Hub surpassed these requirements and as such has received this accolade, endorsing all of the business’s health and safety procedures and leading the technology industry forward. “This worldwide achievement is something we have been working

toward for a long time and is testament to the effort that all of our employees make in maintaining high levels of health and safety at work,” says director of SHEQ Roger Ward. “The Sword of Honour is by no means easy to achieve so we are incredibly proud to have won this award. At ByBox best practice in health and safety forms an integral part of the work ethic we instil in each of our employees and as such we remain focused on continually improving health and safety standards within the business in the years to come.”


atest output and trade data is disappointing, reflected in a

comment from EEF: “While manufacturing contracted in the last quarter there are signs that some parts of industry were at least mounting a comeback after a summer lull. Together with the sharp rebound in October’s PMI we may yet see some more positive data readings in the remainder of 2015 but the risks from weaker activity in emerging markets are likely to present headwinds for manufacturers into next year.

“These effects are already

being felt with a significant fall in goods exports to China over the past three months

LG Motion has won the Small Company of the Year Award at the 2015 British Engineering Excellence Awards. The awards celebrate the best of British Engineering and the Small Business category is hard fought as it accounts for a large proportion of engineering firms across the UK. The panel of judges were made up of technical experts from a cross- section of electronic and engineering design disciplines. As well as a sound business

plan the judges were looking for a product that meets a market need and the successful reception of that product; they wanted to see evidence that the company was either taking on the 'big boys' or exploiting a viable market niche. The judges decided the

company not only demonstrated a clear strategy and effective capability as a business but their story of building an engineering firm in the UK was a familiar one that showed resilience.
