Success at Southern Manufacturing
Southern Manufacturing 2013 went extremely well for us; we spoke to many people and obtained lots of new contacts.
It was also a great opportunity to meet up with existing customers and discuss current business and projects. On one of the days we actually ended up having a full get together with all of the team on a current development project, which actually happened around the coffee table!
Just one of the many benefits of having everyone together at one time.

Focusing on our continuous improvement Javelin are busy implementing TS 16949, the automotive quality system. This will run alongside the ISO 9001, which has been in place since 1997, and will further enhance the quality and procedures throughout the company.
TS 16949 is the International Quality Management Standard specifically written by the Automotive Industry and covers all aspects of quality, delivery and overall efficiency. The benefits are already being seen as well as opening up the opportunities to grow the automotive side of the business. All the work being done also puts the company in a good position to win work within other markets.
The Printing and Welding Bay is now complete. This has been situated next to the Assembly Unit and Storage areas to aid work throughput.
We have now just completed our Assembly Unit within the New Development. This has now been strategically positioned next to the Loading Bay and the Racking Area to facilitate quick and easy storage and despatch. Previously assembly had been spread between units including 1st floor areas.

» New Factory Announcement
Javelin Plastics announces the opening of it’s new 52, 000 square feet manufacturing and warehousing facility in Camberley. Over the last 28 years Javelin has grown to a £10m plastics injection moulding and toolmaking outfit with additional departments specialising in printing, assembly and ultra-sonic welding. These operations have been spread out across 4 factories but have now been able to come together under one roof. Managing Director, Lee Reading comments that when the other half of our primary production site became available, Javelin worked hand in hand with our landlords Segro and our agents Vail Williams to secure an amicable and workable solution to enable us to move out of 3 small satellite factory units and into our 1 main site. With the installation of a 2.5MW electricity supply to support 70 moulding machines and ancillary equipment in one production unit and the fitting out of our new warehousing unit and offices at an investment cost of £550,000, all of the staff at Javelin are now looking forward to a prosperous and growing future.
