Bunting: working through the COVID-19 crisis

SINCE the Covid-19 crisis began, Bun- ting has adapted to continue operating whilst adhering to the restrictions imposed to slow down and ultimately stop the transmission of the virus.

Manufacturing continued in a reduced manner at both their Redditch and Berkhamsted plants, whilst custom- ers continued to receive support from the Bunting technical and sales teams working from home. In May, Denis Elkins guided the European operation through a six-day remote audit for quality, the envi- ronment and health and safety standards. Whilst at Redditch, the work on the major extension to the production area and offices continued, although in a strictly controlled manner.

“As with all manufacturers, we had to adapt our working practices to reflect the new reality,” explained Simon Ayling, Bun- ting’s European Managing Director. At their Redditch site, Bunting continued


manufacturing magnetic separators, eddy current sepa- rators and metal detectors for shipment to companies across the world.

“To continue manufactur- ing, we had to totally review our production processes,” explained Simon, “including working closely with our suppliers. This meant that we could maintain manufac- turing at a reduced capacity. This is an on-going process as we will continue to adapt as the restrictions are relaxed.”

 Part of the production area expansion

The crisis struck as the major plant exten- sion work at Redditch was progressing as planned.

“Despite the challenges, the extension work has continued, albeit at a slower pace,” said Simon. “The additional pro- duction area is now covered and ready for internal work, whilst the work on the

offices and our Centre of Excellence is moving ahead at a good pace. Of course, the schedule has changed, but we are still expecting to complete the project in the autumn.”

Finally, the Bunting team wish to acknowl- edge and thank all key workers including those in the NHS, emergency and care services, and the waste management and recycling industry.

well as bulky items. The company can offer a wide range of container and bin sizes in- cluding bags. Vehicles are equipped with the latest bin weighing technology and digital display screens to enable clients to communicate messages or advertise their business.
