Inside our Factory

Carron Bathrooms, Europe’s leading bath manufacturer has confirmed our commitment to ongoing productivity growth, with the commissioning of a new automated line at its manufacturing base in Falkirk, Scotland.

Carron has long led the way when it comes to product development, specification, and quality assurance, and is now increasing its productivity without compromising product standards.  The first of two reinforcement lines includes three robots, which will facilitate reinforcement application, trimming and drilling as well as packing and palletisation.

The productivity gains will allow Carron to counter some of the inflationary pressures faced in raw materials and energy increases without having to compromise on specification.  “Shrinkflation” is a term we hear more and more, however Carron are determined to offset rising supply costs with process improvements not compromising on proven specifications.
