Commitment to excellence
Actionplas are a Made in Yorkshire Platinum Member
ActionPlas opened their doors this week to welcome 25 decision makers from Yorkshire based manufacturing and engineering companies to network, share best practice and industry insights at their facility in Pudsey near Leeds.
The morning began with networking and a brief introduction from all attendees as to who they are, what they do and how long they have been a member. Chris Wray, ActionPlas Managing Director, led a presentation focusing on the growth and development the business has gone through since 2009 when he and his brother took over ActionPlas from their father.
Chris discussed the ways in which their business has developed skills and recruitment strategies. Following a Made in Yorkshire Skills Working Group earlier in the year ActionPlas have since decided to launch their own apprenticeship academy in house and in September will be taking on 3 new recruits.
To finish off the morning everyone donned their PPE and headed down to the factory in groups for a tour of the manufacturing facilities. Everyone left knowing exactly what ActionPlas do and the benefits of 5S.Following the event, ActionPlas Managing Director Chris Wray left us with these comments on the morning - ‘It’s been excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed it and got to meet some new members and existing members for the first time. We received some lovely feedback which is always a plus and hopefully the opportunity of some new business relationships going forward”
