Persistence wins Award


Brian Sayer has earned himself an AkzoNobel Slough 2016 Value Award for displaying persistence in establishing the root cause of a failure and thereby avoiding significant production loss.

The failure had been “inherited from the other shift” whom had been unable to rectify an issue with product transfers.  Brian wasn’t prepared to give up and stripped a diverter valve apart revealing worn parts which he recognised as the issue, refurbished, rebuilt the valve and re-commissioned the process line.

Brian’s determination was recognised by the local AkzoNobel management team who awarded him with £150 worth of vouchers and a shiny new helmet.

PEME Associate Director – Operations, Barrie Robinson is responsible for overseeing this Asset Care contract and said “Failure will never overtake us if our determination to succeed is strong enough and Brian demonstrated this perfectly. Well done Brian, enjoy the vouchers and the new head protection.”
