This time of year is generally quieter with many off enjoying the festive period. The Company does not shut down totally apart from the statutory days, not so long ago we used to work Christmas day but thankfully we get some time off nowadays.
We have a small number of people who are working carrying out some planned and some unplanned work. The main job is installing 50 tonne hoists ready for a shut down in early January, The powered trolley shown below, that weighs around one tonne, requires some minor adjustments that are best done in the workshop as access on site is awkward and limited. Once adjusted it will be reassembled with the 50 tonne air hoist and positioned on the load beam high up in the customers factory.
