West Control Solutions completes refurbishment with Ecotile

Production continues while Ecotile ESD floor tiles are installed

West Control Solutions, global specialists in advanced temperature and process control instrumentation, has recently completed a major expansion of its UK manufacturing centre in Brighton, creating new jobs and increasing output capability by up to 25,000 units per annum.

Critical to the project’s success was the extensive planning and logistics management required to ensure disruption to customers was kept to a minimum which is why Ecotile Flooring Ltd were chosen to supply and install their ESD interlocking floor tiles.  Phase one was completed in February 2014 with the second phase finishing May 2015. In total 1200m² of grounded Ecotile was installed over the existing asbestos tiles while production continued at full capacity.

Steve Allen, Operations Director, explains “As an electronics manufacturer the quality and integrity of our products is paramount and a conductive floor is an integral part of production. It wasn’t viable for us to shut down operations to install an ESD floor so the fact that Ecotile could go straight over the top while we continued to work was a huge advantage. We have used different colours to delineate walkways and now only need to do one monthly test to check the floor is giving us the ESD protection we need. This has made a significant improvement to our facility!”

Ecotile is guaranteed for ten years and is fully compliant with British and European standards.
