Lunch and Learn taps in to efficiency and cost benefits at Pegler Yorkshire

Lunch and Learn taps in to efficiency and cost benefits at Pegler Yorkshire

Thursday 7th August 2014

The latest in a series of Thorite "Lunch and Learn" events has been held at Doncaster-based Pegler Yorkshire, manufacturers of high quality commercial and residential plumbing and heating products.

Thorite has been a supplier to Pegler Yorkshire for many years, but the Lunch and Learn event, held in the Pegler Yorkshire Conference Suite in July, provided a tasty opportunity for Pegler Yorkshire's maintenance, design and marketing personnel to learn how the latest technology available from the UK's premier manufacturers of compressed air, pneumatic, vacuum and process control equipment could provide the company with significant efficiency and cost benefits.

The informal 3 1/2 hour event, which included a buffet lunch and mini exhibition, was supported by over a dozen leading manufacturers including Norgren, Ace, Parker, Burkert, Festo, Desoutter, Graco, SMC, Piab and Stauff, attracting many of Pegler Yorkshire’s most influential production and management personnel.

Speaking after the event Mandy Raymond, Pegler Yorkshire's Buyer said: "Feedback from our attendees all points to the Lunch and Learn being a useful and informative event, particularly on new technology and products. Thorite brought together our most important suppliers in one place, making discussion with their expert representatives simple and effective. I've been aware of Thorite for many years but it's really refreshing to see the company evolve and be at the forefront of fast-moving technological developments. Thorite personnel at both their Leeds and Doncaster Sales and Service Centres are very useful to both myself and our engineering staff and our enquiries during the event are being followed up quickly, with detailed information being sent to the relevant people. Everyone benefits from increased efficiency and Lunch & Learn has proved to be an enjoyable way of exploring how this can best be achieved, while also providing the ideal opportunity to create new relationships and strengthen existing friendships."

Interested companies can contact Thorite's Sales Director, Alan Donkersley at Thorite on 07939 587934 or to discuss future Lunch & Learn events, or can visit any of the company’s regional Sales and Service Centres in Blackburn, Bolton, Bradford, Doncaster, Huddersfield, Leeds, Rochdale, Sheffield, North Shields and Brierley Hill in the West Midlands to find out more.
