Rolls-Royce maximise HPC opportunities with Ecotile

Ecotile In Rolls-Royce factory

Ecotile Helps Rolls-Royce Strengthen Internal Branding

Rolls-Royce is a global company providing highly-efficient integrated power and propulsion solutions that are predominantly used in aerospace, marine, energy and off-highway applications.
Rolls-Royce focus on engineering excellence and operational excellence by transforming their manufacturing and supply chain to embed a lean approach across their facilities and processes. Ecotile interlocking floor tiles help them to achieve this goal.

What?

As part of the Rolls-Royce Production System Rolls-Royce have updated 10 of the Team Centres at their facility in Bristol. In accordance with Lean Manufacturing principles the focus was on safety and efficiency through visual management and Andrew Tromans, Manufacturing Improvement Leader, realised that the floor was an under used resource.

How?

Ecotile interlocking floor tiles are laid in each cell with signs and branding that reinforce the High Performance Culture (HPC) message.

In other areas of the factory Ecotile has helped improve safety and efficiency by using different colours to differentiate between working areas and gangways.

Why?

Ecotile can be dry laid over damp, damaged, contaminated and uneven floors making it very quick and easy to install. In this instance the concrete floors were in excellent condition but needed to be acid etched every 6 – 9 months to remove the build-up of the wax/silicone release agent which meant shutting down production. Now a rolling schedule sees the Ecotiles in each cell taken up and removed for cleaning every 5 weeks with no disruption to production and no additional cost.

Market-leading manufacturer of interlocking floor tiles, Ecotile, designs and produces its comprehensive range at its UK production facility – providing durable and safe flooring solutions that can be installed with minimal disruption in commercial and industrial applications around the world.

A Sustainable Solution

All Ecotiles come with a 10 year product warranty as standard.

Manufactured using the highest grade material, once the tiles have reached the end of their useful life, we will collect the tiles – free of charge – and recycle them to produce the next generation of Ecotile
