PP Control & Automation has been hitting the headlines again this week after appearing in a Special ‘10 years after the financial crisis’ Report on Sky News.
Ed Conway, Economics Editor for the broadcaster, visited our West Midlands facility to take a look at how we recovered from the global slowdown that saw our order book reduced by 70% in just four weeks.
He learned how investment in people, processes and technology saw the company come out of the other side stronger than before, supporting a host of world class customers across automotive, aerospace, printing, medical and the scientific industries.
Tony Hague, CEO, commented: “It was great having the Sky News team at PP and showing them what makes our business special and how important it is for UK industry to invest in improving productivity.
“We had what appeared a tough choice to make in 2009 when in reality it was the only one we could take. Yes, times were tough, but we didn’t sacrifice our principles and continued looking at how we could work smarter and investing in our staff, our continuous improvement programme and automation.”
He concluded: “It was the right approach as we have more than doubled in size over the last decade and our strategic outsourcing partnerships are firmly in place with market leading machinery builders, such as ABG International, Ishida Europe, Fullwood and Mazak.”
