Supplier: Aurora Process Solutions
13 February, 2018

Higgins Group’s Sean Bearsley gives Aurora 10 out of 10 for their knowledge and skills. But the best bit of their project together is improved health and safety, and reduced risk to employees.

Finding the right solution for Higgins needed sound knowledge and a strong working relationship, with clear communication between Aurora and their client.

Sean Bearsley, who is Project Development Manager at Higgins, believes Aurora ticks all the boxes.

“They were very easy to work with, had good product knowledge and technical knowledge, which allowed us to find suitable equipment,” he says.

The project required a solution that took into account the process and human factors associated with the existing system and the problems surrounding it.

“We purchased the machine [Floveyer Aero Mechanical conveyer for rubber granules] because we had been loading the processor from a height, which, with heat and other variables, created a health and safety risk. The new machinary has eliminated this risk,” says Sean.

Reassurance that Higgins was getting the right solution for them was paramount. An added benefit was Aurora found a way to solve the problem without breaking the bank.

Sean says, “I knew exactly what I was getting and when, and everything ran to budget. The best part was that they were able to offer us a second-hand alternative because the first-hand options were out of our price range.”

Budget and brief aside the number one win for Higgins is the improved safety of their team.

Sean explains: “It has eliminated the previous health and safety issues. It was exactly what we needed. I would definitely use them again.”
