Yamato Scale Dataweigh improves factory team efficiency

Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK, a leading manufacturer of quality industrial weighing machines, has moved to a new factory in Leeds

The greater space at the new premises on Millennium Way means that Yamato has increased space to develop work flows and processes that improve team efficiencies in all areas of manufacturing, sales, maintenance and service.

Yamato commercial operations manager Andrea Spencer said: “We are delighted to be in new premises. The additional space means that we can deliver improved manufacturing capabilities and better lead times on orders through enhanced workflow and efficiencies.”

More space in the new factory means that Yamato is able to improve the efficiency of manufacturing flow for its ranges of weighing machines, multihead weighers, check weighers and metal detectors. Increased work flow, even more efficient processes and better capacity means swifter delivery of new machines and faster handling of repairs.

Andrea Spencer added: “Extra space means that we have more manufacturing capacity than before. This has led to us creating improved work processes which have made the team more efficient across the board. Yamato is one of the leading global manufacturers of multihead weighing technology, providing unique and innovative weighing machines to help its customers ensure their packaging processes are as efficient and productive as possible."

“Our ranges of multihead weighers are designed to be energy efficient, accurate, hygienic and easy to use. Our extensive industry knowledge and experience permits us to design and build customised multihead weighing solutions for a wide range of industry sectors including pharmaceuticals, fresh produce and frozen food, other non-food and hardware," she added.

The new factory space enables Yamato to develop additional solutions for a wider range of customers even more efficiently than before, stock more spares and fulfil orders for genuine parts more efficiently.
