Who is Cobham PLC?
Cobham Mission Equipment is the market-leader for air-to-air re-fuelling, providing innovative fourth generation nose to tail solutions to defence customers worldwide.
During a risk assessment at their site in Wimborne in Dorset, some health and safety issues were identified and, as a result, Operations Manager Paul White recognised the need to eliminate risks when staff were moving stock between levels using the stairs. The risks identified included operator fatigue and increased back strain. There was also the risk of damage to stock in the event of it being dropped which supported the need to find an alternative method.
Cobham began their search for a suitable solution and approached Advanced Handling to supply a Mezzanine Goods Lift. The Goods Lift was required to rise to a height of 4.2 metres and have a lift capacity of 250kg and our technical team worked closely with Cobham to ensure all their needs and requirements were met.
The installation of the lift eliminated the risk of staff being injured or products being damaged when being transported between floors. In turn, this improved their efficiency and productivity.
