Back to the Future features the iconic ‘homemade time machine’, which was in fact the DeLorean DMC-12, with a few time machine additions of course such as the flux capacitor. The DMC-12 is now commonly just referred to as a DeLorean, dropping the model suffix after the company went into administration, and the DMC-12 was the only model it manufactured. We were delighted to learn that the cars were in fact manufactured just over the water in Northern Ireland between 1981-1982, despite destined for the American market.

Or in this case copper peach. We’ve been looking into ways Constant Manufacturing can make our business more green, economical and efficient (alongside our Lean Manufacturing pledge) so our Operations Manager has been out and about getting the low-down on Mitsubishi’s new Fuso Canter Eco-Hybrid green wagons. We’ve opted to research the Mitsubishi Fuso range first as our current fleet are Fusos which have been ever so reliable and highly operational over the years.

This summer saw us upgrade our Trumpf Quick Sharp machine to a newer, digital model. Our previous Quick Sharp machine was a manually operated sharpener, however we chose to upgrade this time to a digital version. The digital version of the Quick Sharp should speed up the process, reduce tooling re-sharpening errors, as well as reduce downtime on tools being out of operation.

The start of Summer has been a busy time for us at Constant. Not only have we won some great contracts, we’ve also had the pleasure of talented photographer, Mark Gilligan FBIPP LRPS, take to the floors of Constant for two days of corporate photography. And don’t worry, Mark had supervisor personnel with him the whole time during the two day photography process to ensure his, and our staffs, safety throughout his time with us.
