Every year at PMS Diecasting, GoTools, Gripple, Loadhog and Laser Scanning, employees participate in elections to recognise colleagues for their achievements throughout the year, in a number of different categories.

This year, Terry Mullins, Supervisor in Finishing & Processing, was voted by employees at PMS Diecasting to receive the prestigious ‘GLIDE Chairman’s Award’ and in addition the Leadership Award too. The annual winner of the GLIDE Award receives an all expenses paid trip to visit either Gripple USA, Gripple India or Gripple France/Europe or indeed stay on home turf and visit all the local GLIDE businesses! Terry chose the USA along with fellow GLIDE Award winner at GoTools Shaun Palfreyman.

Here are some of the highlights of the trip…

GLIDE Fitness Truck

Thursday, January 12, 2017

A mobile gym has recently been visiting PMS Diecasting to offer a 30 minute circuit training session to any employees who wish to participate. The sessions consist of several different exercise stations which include equipment like battle ropes, kettle bells, resistance bands and medicine/smash balls.

Each employee, after stretches and a warm up, spent a timed 3 minutes on each of several stations with a short cool down between each of the three circuits. The combination of exercises gave a full body workout. The mobile gym arrived in the back of a pick up truck and was set up in the car park.

Thank you to and for the sessions!

PMS Diecasting, GoTools, Gripple Automation, Laser Scanning and Loadhog enjoyed discussing with visitors their group solutions within manufacturing.

PMS Diecasting in turn can diecast quality parts or components using the precision tooling in their hundred, thousands or even millions. Gripple Automation, specialising in automatic assembly and expert in rotary table and pick & place systems, can build bespoke automation systems and Loadhog can manufacture and provide returnable transit packaging solutions which create greener, more efficient supply chains.
