As concerns continue over workforce shortages in the wake of Brexit, it’s never been more important to maximise efficiency through the harvesting season. The HortNews website posted a story on 11th January, highlighting the issue of foreign workers in the UK.
Providing good quality, reliable equipment for your pickers will ensure they’re productive and will make them feel valued, encouraging them to return year after year – something that will be increasingly important as labour becomes more scarce.
Keeping your team working effectively is absolutely essential; you’ve invested in a skilled workforce for the peak harvesting season, so you need equipment that won’t fail half way through, leaving your pickers high and dry whilst you’re still paying them.
Wheels that seize, trays that crack or metalwork that simply isn’t strong enough are all common faults that can stop productivity in its tracks.
If your equipment is letting you down, you need a supplier who will work through your unique requirements to design products that suit your own production methods and will last you season after season.
We’ve been producing fruit harvesting equipment in the UK for over fifty years.
Not only do we make high quality products that last many years, but we talk to our customers to find out how we can improve the design too. Our flat pack Marden Mk 1 trolley is just one example of how our products evolve to suit customer needs. This compact design offers the same high quality of all our products with the additional benefit of easy transport and out of season storage.
