CCU cost reduction workshop in Thailand

CCU cost reduction workshop in Thailand

Suretank's offshore CCU specialists recently convened at a workshop in Suretank Thailand during 26 – 29 January 2015 to focus in on a cost reduction project with the goal of re-evaluating Suretank’s market leading Cargo Carrying Unit range.

The objective was to review customer requirements and Suretank’s engineering characteristics and to build a strategy to even further improve the product range in line with the company’s goal of “Engineering a better, safer future”.

Participants travelled from Ireland, Poland, Latin America and Thailand to bring in expertise from all areas of the Suretank group.  The workshop reviewed the cost element breakdown for material and operation, and Quality Function Deployment (QFD) using the Shelves Mini Container as a case study.  The team reviewed communication procedures, shared best practice manufacturing processes and assigned a team for our future improvement.

The event provided a great opportunity to share Suretank’s worldwide engineering expertise and was a great motivator for building on the already excellent team spirit within the company.

The bringing together of experts and facilitation of ongoing dialogue is a key reason that Suretank  holds the position of market leader in the production of offshore CCUs.  Considering continuous improvement as a part of our day to day jobs allows us to make large strides in product development and is a fundamental aspect of the way in which Suretank does business.  It’s why we are able to maintain our position as leader within the market.
