Improvement Projects

How can we help?

We provide a comprehensive gap analysis of your current production capabilities against where you need to be. We convert the gap analysis into a realistic, practical, and structured plan to turn your vision into reality.

We can help you to identify and deliver those quick wins so you can get more out of your current line by reducing costs, compressing delivery, and boosting quality. We can help you improve capability and line capacity by identifying and testing the correct plant equipment, fully managing the project right through to hand off to production.

Our team are experts in Process Improvement and process scale-up with backgrounds in Science, Engineering and Manufacturing. We offer our knowledge and experience to help you get it right first time and on time.

The guys at PS56 made some cracking procedures which we use all the time especially with the new staff. It means I’m not on the shop floor every 10 minutes and I’ve got more time to deal with my big clients. They also helped smarten up the way we organise work so everybody knows what they are doing and things work a lot smoother. They have really helped my business and I’m looking forward to working with them again.
