Succesful Low Carbon Vehicle Show

Following two very busy and successful business days the CENEX Low Carbon Vehicle exhibition 2012 has now come to a close for another year.

We had great pleasure meeting prospective and existing clients and discussing how Parkinson Harness are able to supply all types of vehicle harness, battery/HV leads and also complete systems to their specification, we even did business with our neighbouring exhibitors!

It was a great show to see new and emerging technology from wireless inductive vehicle charging, an array of wired charge points to hydrogen power cells. There was also a chance to take a run around the test track in some of the vehicles on show.

Thank you again for those that stopped at our booth; we look forward to continuing discussions with you.

Successful B.I.T.S courses

Parkinson Harness Technology has been running a series of courses to NVQ standard in Business improvement techniques. There are a number of projects on going ranging from re-laying out of the shop floor to setting up a dedicated training section.

“Trainees from the courses have found the tools and techniques gained to be invaluable when approaching new projects and situations in the work place” commented John Chapman (Production Manager) and “we will be continuing with the program for the coming months due to there success”.

David Earnshaw (Director) added “we have always trained our team to a high standard but the BITS courses have given the production sections ownership of meaningful projects, helping them on a daily basis and the business to be more competitive overall.  All inall we are very pleased with the results”

Parkinson is the 'Plaice' to be on a sunny day...

Our local radio station Lincs FM in conjunction with Lincolnshire County Council ran a bike safety promotion during March and the Cycle Squad visited PHT giving out cycle goodies such as lights and hi-viz rucksack covers to help staff remain safe on the road. 
 What we didn’t know was that as part of the promotion all companies visited had their names put into a draw to win a meal out for 12 people – and we won!! The money was put towards a lunch for the whole factory and on a glorious sunny lunch time Wendy and Trevor Taylor from The Lincolnshire Fryer (Wragby) supplied a wonderful Fish and Chip Lunch for all 120+ members of staff...   Thanks!
