2015 has been a very busy year for the whole company with…
♦ 6 Lean Workshop Group Seminars across the UK
♦ 5 installations across the world
♦ 2 major Airshows in very different time zones
– it’s a wonder how we have managed to fit them all in!
Avalon Airshow in Victoria
The first major event for Hurst Green Plastics for 2015 was the Avalon Airshow in Victoria, Australia.
Not only was this the first time we have exhibited in Australia but it was also the furthest away we have exhibited from our facilities here in Lancashire, England.
With the Asia Pacific region currently named as the fastest growing area within Aviation, we were delighted to book our stand and show how we can save companies within this region time and money through our patented Storage and Kitting Systems.
It was safe to say, the show did not disappoint – there were over 200,000 visitors over 6 days to the event and we have developed new business relationships with an area of the world previously unexplored by the company.
Major Installation in USA
The second major event for Hurst Green Plastics within 2015 was an installation for a Major Aircraft Manufacturer in the USA. The installation was the first installation completed ‘across the pond’ by our team. The installation took 5 men, 4 days to complete and comprised of over 40 racks and 2000 TwinBins.
This was just the first installation of many for the company as we completed a further 5 throughout the UK. The TwinBin and Racking installations took place in 4 different cities across the country and customers included a major British rail manufacturer and a major British automotive manufacturer.
The Paris Airshow
The next major event for Hurst Green Plastics was the Paris Airshow. The Airshow attracted over 149,000 professional visitors over 5 days as well as an additional 200,000 visitors on the two public days, With 130 Aircraft on display and over $130 billion worth of orders as a result of the Airshow it was definitely worth the visit. We took this fantastic opportunity to meet with existing business contacts and took the time to also begin new business relationships. We left the event very excited for Farnborough Airshow next year!
The Lean Workshop Group
Amongst all the exhibitions and product installations, we also presented and hosted seminars at 6 Lean Workshop Group Events across the Country.
We held events in Coventry, Wakefield, Newport, Sunderland and Uxbridge, with a special event at the request of JLR Halewood. Over 300 professionals attended the events at the 6 different locations.
We have many Lean Workshop Group events planned for next year across the country. Check our website and Twitter Feed regularly for dates and locations and how to book your spot!
Hurst Green Plastics also welcomed Sophia back to the fold after being away for University.
She has now joined the company on a part-time basis whilst continuing her studies at University.
We Shipped to Our 50th Country
In 2015 we were delighted to have exported products to our 50th Country across the globe. The order, which was being shipped to Denmark, marked a special landmark occasion within the company. New countries for 2015 in which we proudly exported to include Costa Rica, Estonia and Thailand.
The plans for 2016 are already dramatically underway with a total of 2 new products ready to sell and 3 events already confirmed – it’s already set to be a very busy year.
Unfortunately, our new products are a closely guarded secret and you will have to wait until January for them to be revealed!
