Leading Cosmetics Manufacturer Benefits from PJP Pre-Planned Maintenance

One savvy cosmetics manufacturer has turned to PJP to proactively address potential issues in their conveyor operations before they escalate into more significant problems. As a manufacturing business, they need to be able to trust their machines and technology to run operations smoothly. An unexpected breakdown or equipment failure could spell disaster in terms of costly downtime, reduced productivity, eroded profits and unhappy customers. That’s why support and maintenance is key.

Checklists are our best friends

PJP takes a planned and systematic approach to maintaining the customer’s machinery, equipment and systems. This involves regularly servicing and inspecting the customer’s operational assets. At our most recent visit, we meticulously went through a huge checklist of items.

We checked everything to do with their conveyor’s rollers, bands, shafts, chains, joints, gates, fan vents, sensors, pull cords, motors… then cleaned, fixed, re-positioned and re-tensioned as needed.

Safety is crucial in the operation

Our visits are also the perfect opportunity to assess the safety of the entire operation. Safety checks and inspections help identify potential hazards or faulty components that could pose a threat to employees’ well-being. By addressing these issues promptly, the customer creates a safer working environment, reducing the chances of accidents or injuries.

Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

When installing spares, in line with the customer’s wishes, we use reconditioned parts when possible. This had sustainability benefits and keeps down the cost of the service.

We now have a watch list for the parts of their conveyors that are likely to need attention when we next come over. Everything is done in collaboration with the customer so there are no sharp intakes of breath. Just a reliable and fully working conveyor system that will have a significantly longer lifespan due to the care that we are taking over it.

We look after other manufacturers’ conveyors too

Did you know that we look after many conveyors that have been supplied by other manufacturers – not just the ones that we make?

Rapid Conveyor Solution to Help National Retailer Cope with Christmas

A Christmas disaster strikes

It wasn’t looking like it was going to be a great Christmas for this national retailer. Their existing conveyor was finally beyond economical repair due to its age and condition after having been used 7 days a week for 12 years. It was heavily relied on as it was the only method of staff getting bulky items safely between floors in the warehouse – including lots of potential Christmas presents.

Just as their sales were ramping up, their conveyor broke down. 


PJP to the rescue

The organisation rightly called on PJP Conveyors to assist. We understood how vital these conveyors were to operations, especially so close to a major trading period.

Our strategy to ensure continuous operations was to attempt a temporary repair to see them through the period until a new conveyor could be supplied. Much to the delight of the client, we were able to carry out the repair successfully to enable limited use of the existing conveyor.

A sustainable long term solution developed

Meanwhile, the rest of the PJP team pulled out all the stops to get a new conveyor designed, manufactured, delivered & installed in less than 6 weeks from original breakdown being reported!

We also managed to get all the associated electrical controls replaced and upgraded so that they met current safety standards.

Christmas miracles (available any time of the year)

This is the closest PJP and the client got to a Christmas miracle, because our quick thinking and speedy turnaround truly saved the client from a very sticky situation.
