Change in premises boosts production for Leeds manufacturer
Yamato has moved to larger premises, which has enabled it to create improved work flow and processes to improve its manufacturing capabilities

Leeds manufacturer Yamoto Scale Dataweigh UK has bolstered its production throughput capabilities following a recent change of premises.

The greater space on Millennium Way means that Yamato has increased space to develop work flows and processes that have improved efficiencies in all areas of fabrication and production.

“The additional space means that we have improved our production capabilities leading to better lead times on orders through enhanced workflow and efficiencies,” said Andrea Spencer, Yamato Commercial Operations Manager.

More space in the new factory means that Yamato has increased the efficiency of its production 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.

Ms Spencer said: “Extra space means that we have more capacity than before. This has led to us creating improved work processes which have made the team more efficient across the board.”

She added: “The new factory space enables us to develop additional solutions for a wider range of customers even more efficiently than before.”

Yamoto supplies industrial weighing machines to the pharmaceutical and fresh produce & frozen food industries, as well as other non-food and hardward.
