INVESTMENT continues to promote
greater efficiency and productivity
Throughout 2015 Sertronics will continue to invest in
company infrastructure and have embarked on an exciting
range of enhancements throughout the business including
replacing all IT hardware and using cloud based server
software. The aim is to offer our customers a more
efficient, faster and more economical service.
Our existing telephone system is being replaced with a
new Polycom system giving us total flexibility and
security, providing a new range of services our
customers can use.
From the first week in April, Sertronics will implement
its new state of the art job management software to
control all of its manufacturing and repair processes.
The new software will give Sertronics customers the
ability to trace and track their own jobs through the
Sertronics web portal and it will enable customers to
book their jobs for collection on the system.
We are investing in a range of production equipment
including an additional battery tab welding station
allowing increased production and faster turnaround
time. We are also introducing a computer controlled
guillotine for producing nickel strip battery tabs to
any size required automatically -which is particularly
useful with some specialist battery pack development.
This machine produces link strips in a fraction of the
time currently experienced.
facility and APPRENTICESHIPS
Sertronics plans also include the creation of a small,
purpose built training facility based at our current
premises in Walsall, which will be used for technical
training including advanced cell technology and
manufacturing and warehousing. The training facility
will also be available to some customers who wish to
gain better understanding of battery technology. Sertronics is undergoing training on Cell Technologies
and its staff are receiving a range of on-going training
which will ultimately benefit them personally and
Sertronics Customers. Battery technology is improving
and becoming more complicated with new products coming
on to the market every week staying ahead of this new
technology is challenging but very exciting. Experienced staff of a sufficiently high standard, are difficult to
find as we operate in a specialist niche market.
Sertronics understands the need to develop enthusiastic
keen minds to work with this technology and to these
ends Sertronics will during 2015 start an apprenticeship
scheme alongside Walsall College.
During the past few years we have been asked if we
supply new battery packs and until now this is a service
we have been unable to offer, We are now pleased to
announce the introduction of a full range of Sertronics
own brand battery packs and accessories. There is a gap
in the market for the provision of a high quality UK
based products that can compete on price with inferior
foreign pattern battery packs advertised on line that
have limited guarantee and poor performance. Sertronics
new range of products will give guaranteed high quality
and performance at a price point that compares with any
others advertised. Our customers can be confident that
any products purchased from Sertronics have undergone
rigorous quality testing and will give performance equal
to OEM products. This is supported by Sertronics
technical team and a full warranty.
We’ll keep you posted on
these and other developments throughout the year…
