Peterborough Manufacturing Marketing Help

Peterborough Manufacturing Group What Should It Do

Peterborough Manufacturing Club An Opportunity To Help Peterborough Manufacturers

A Peterborough Manufacturing group is in the process of developed. The cluster will potentially offer a number of services / elements to manufacturers and related companies.

To best serve the Peterborough manufacturing group I think the following activities should be considered

Peterborough Manufacturing Club

Visits To Peterborough Manufacturing Factories

  1. Factory visits: I remember when there used a made in the UK programme of best practice visits to major manufacturers where you had the opportunity to 
    • Walk round the factory under normal operation conditions
    • Get talks from key people within the organisation
    • Discuss challenges and successes
    • From an innovation and creativity perspective they provided a fantastic opportunity to see how others solved problems that were possibly typical to many
  2. Informative presentations: having some industry recognised speakers who have shown that they have the capability to make a difference within UK manufacture.
  3. Potentially there are opportunities for a buying group to be formed that could consolidate procurement of standard components / items
  4. With such a group of manufacturing experts in one place there is possibly the chance of having a manufacturing questions. Now it could be that with a manufacturing group there is an event greater need to have non engineers as part of the process. Key questions for the manufacturing sector are possibly based around a number of themes
    1. Efficiency  – how can I make more for less resource or how can I make the item quicker without compromising quality
    2. Effectiveness
      • How do I get more customers? Now this is a classic question in its broadness. Which new customers do you want. Do you really want customers to buy that particular product range
      • How can I  increase my prices.? Again another ‘priceless’ question which is very marketing focused and requires extensive marketing knowledge if one is to make informed decisions
      • Peterborough Manufacturing Club companies can get practical help by simply clicking the link

Your Clothing Shop – E Commerce Website & Shops Within Shop

We developed this e commerce solution to take a classic catalogue and provide a unique shopping facility for Total Promotions. Having over 70,000 products within their portfolio they had justification for an e commerce site. Combine this with sizing, colours and naming personalisation  then you suddenly have a very complex purchasing scenario. Combine this with the need for Total Promotions clients to have their own websites and that’s where our innovative solution came into play.
We designed the shop to allow branded sub shops to be easily created that used the same product configuration. This allowed schools, colleges and associations to offer their pupils and members their own unique branded shop capable of e commerce transactions to go live within days rather than weeks (or even months).

Wholesale LED Lights The Future Of Lighting

Wholesale Led Lights Why Buy Them

Huge savings on your lighting bills
Electricity costs are on the increase. LED lighting uses upto 90% less electricity than a standard halogen bulb, this can result in huge savings on your electricity bills.
Much longer bulb life
LED light bulbs have a much longer life span compared to standard halogen bulbs. In fact LED bulbs last up to 50000 hours –  That equates to 17 years if your lights are on 8 hrs a day, 7 days a week that’s huge ! When you install new LED lights you may never have to replace the bulbs again.
Eco Friendly light bulbs – More easily Re-cycled
Wholesale LED lights are extremely energy efficient and, unlike some CFL and halogen bulbs, contain no harmful substances like Mercury. This means they are far safer to use around the home and can be recycled without damaging the environment.
Energy Efficient lighting – *0 % of electric into light
Wholesale LED lights operate at around 80% efficiency, compared to an incandescent bulb that is only 20% efficient. This means that an LED bulb converts 80% of its electricity into light energy. These huge power savings lead to massive reductions in your electricity bills
Low temperature operation – much lower than halogen
LED lights work at a much lower temperature than halogen bulbs. In fact they give off virtually no heat at all which makes them highly energy efficient and far safer to install, with a much-reduced risk of fire.

Wholesale Led Lights Choose Wisely

  •  A Quality 5ft T8 LED tube light replaces a standard florescent tube and should deliver more lumens per watt, have less heat radiation, contain no mercury and be flicker free in operation
  • Typically a quality 5ft LED tube will consumeg only 27w it produces a saving of up to 58% in energy costs compared to fluorescents.
  • Standard florescent bulbs have a life time of about 2 years. Quality manufactured LED tubes last (based on an 8 hour per day usage) an average 17 years so not only will you save on energy bills but also on maintenance and disposal costs.
  • LED lights produce very little heat and therefore in summer months the costs to run office air conditioning will also reduce. This is based on the assumption the weather will improve and we will get sunshine over the summer
  • Quality 5ft LED tubes incorporate 384 high output LED’s producing a daylight white light that is ideal for office environments as it makes illuminated objects appear crisper.
  • Performance LED Lights should incorporate the latest LED chip, Heatsink, Lens and driver technology.

Making the change from fluorescent to LED

  • LED Tubes are designed to replace conventional T8 Fluorescent tubes and can be replaced directly into any fluorescent fitting.
  • Simply install the LED tube light and then swap the starter over with the included LED starter to complete the circuit. Note some suppliers may not include the starter
  • Avoid LED tube lights that are designed to have the starter removed completely as these stay live on one side which can be dangerous and do not pass CE regulations.
  • Choose LED  tube lightswhere the manufacturer is prepared to offer a significant  5 year warranty!
  • Bulb Options You Can Choose From: Cool White, Warm White, Ultra Thin – these options can be tailored for the environment into which they need to be fitted
    • These provide a great source of general illumination, suitable for use in offices, factories, supermarkets, buses, trains, task lighting, store displays, warehouse illumination and under cabinets.
  • Beware: Many LED lights simply do not deliver the performance promised in the advertising.
    • Claims are made that they will last 50,000 hours, but they die after less than 10,000 hours.
    • Super bright’ is a common claim but they are dim compared to the halogens they replace

Peterborough Mailing Services – Website Design and Development

With the addition of new direct mailing services, fulfilment and warehousing  it was important that these services were effectively showcased. Download reports and sign up forms  were created to capture visitor details.
With the majority of visitors finding the site through offline activities (i.e. direct mail, telephone, directories etc)  it was important that the home page provided clear navigation.

Commercial Heating Peterborough Identifying The Reliable Companies

Commercial Heating Peterborough What To Consider

Commercial Heating Peterborough there are lots of companies within the region who would suggest that they offer services to businesses. If you are looking for Commercial Heating Peterborough suppliers then the following could be some questions to see if they will be suitable

Commercial Heating Key Questions

      • Are all there engineers Gas Safe approved – i.e. will you be getting qualified engineers to perform maintenance or repairs to your heating system
      • If you have an oil based heating system do all the engineers carry the relevant oil based qualifications and accreditations
      • Does the company carry out all the heating maintenance and repairs using its own staff or does it subcontract through other Commercial Heating Peterborough based companies. If it does
        • Who will be responsible if the maintenance or repair isnt fixed to your requirements
        • Why not go direct to the main contractor and avoid paying an additional handling fee
        • By dealing direct you avoid any issues should there be problems with the heating installation or repair
      • In many cases it appears that in a commercial heating installation the very first thing an engineer says when he comes to fix a problem (on an installation not completed by them ) is “Well if I had put the boiler / valve / condensor / heating tank / pipework (choose any piece of equipment as appropriate) in I wouldn’t have done it like that.
      • So the challenge at that point is to get a heating Peterborough based company involved who are happy to maintain / repair the system without requiring to completely re-pipe your factory or office
      • Always make sure that you get a detailed written proposal from the commercial heating company and make sure they are VAT registered. The chance of getting any legitimate company to take on board your system who are not is very unlikely.

Peterborough Water Innovation Network – Marketing The Water Industry

Water Innovation Network Aims:

The aim of the Water Innovation Network is to drive innovation within the water industry supply chain and to encourage industrial end-users of water to adopt innovative solutions that reduce water demand.

Water Solutions

The demand for innovative water solutions is largely driven by a relatively small number of water utility companies but is underpinned by a large and diverse supply chain made up of a large number of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). These SMEs often find it hard to engage with the large utility companies and so it is one of the main roles of the H2O Innovation Network to create a gateway and a platform for these businesses to supply to the major utilities. Additionally, the H2O Innovation Network engages with large industrial water-users who are increasingly looking for solutions to reduce water use and/or pollution. Five of the most water-intensive industries are being targeted: agriculture/fisheries; basic metals; chemicals; service industries; and food and drink.
Innovation within the water sector typically occurs in the supply chain and not within the water utilities and this is something which has been diminishing over the last 10 years due to constraints on funding and a consolidation of the water supply chain. To overcome this the H2O Innovation Network, working with the water utility companies, fosters a culture of open innovation and leverages funding from public- and private-sector sources to put towards the research and development of innovative water solutions. This includes solutions which can reduce water pollution, assist in water treatment, enable more effective water distribution, rainwater/grey water harvesting devices and water efficiency solutions.

Water Innovation Network Objectives:

      • Stimulate innovation in the water industry supply chain to meet industry demand
      • Create a collaborative network of water sector companies, organisations & universities
      • Increase deal flow within the water sector
      • Leverage additional national or European collaborative R&D funding
      • Develop new overseas markets for the water industry supply chain
      • Increase Government support of innovation in the sector and investment in R&D
