Christmas Wishes and Charity Fund Raising


This year we have decided to turn our annual Charity Christmas Jumper day, which raises money for Save the Children, into a celebration of all of the things that make us individuals as well as those which bring us together at this time of year.

As such we have decided to host our first International food day allowing our staff to bring in local delicacies from their home nation, or even just the food that makes them smile. The idea has been a festive success with us celebrating with colleagues, having a good time and raising £155.00 for charity, so we will look to continue this into the years to come.

We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope you have a successful and prosperous 2018, from everyone here at Parkinson Harness Technology Ltd.

IPC Training

In order to help us provide a better level of service and product for our customers we have re-invested in our staff training to bring employees up to speed with the IPC 620 standards. 

Recently we have 17 more members of our team pass certified IPC courses, led by Wendy Garner, with the intention to roll this out company wide.

This is another step in an increasing quality improvement plan being run by our Quality Manager - Joanne Garner, our Production Manager - Michelle Berry and other members of staff. We are keen to continuously improve our business and production practices to offer our customers unrivaled levels of service from our UK based manufacturing facility.

Grants4Growth

At Parkinson Harness Technology Ltd we are keen to push ourselves to develop better and more efficient ways to carry our business forward. As such, with assistance from Grants4Growth which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, we have invested in a Komax BT752 to expand our capabilities and achieve further efficiency improvements on some of our regular running products.

PHT have benefitted from this grant by clearly demonstrating the potential for growth within our industry and ability to create sustainable jobs, strengthening the local economy.
