If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught manufacturers anything, it would have been to find new ways to reduce cost while increasing production to meet rising demand. This can be done effectively by creating production space using old warehouse spaces. The sheer size provided by a warehouse creates flexibility with what the space can be used for.
With the major savings in cost by converting a warehouse instead of building a new production facility, manufacturers then open the possibility of focusing on investing in increasing overall safety and equipment that maximises production potential.
One of the most important aspects of conversion is understanding the processes of conversion. With their abilities in full Architecture, Engineering (both Building and Process-Packaging), and Construction services, Haskell covers the bases in helping clients understand the process to optimise their facility while protecting existing spaces. This is done easily with the integration of laser scanning and Building Information Modelling (BIM), assisting in understanding every nook and cranny and what can be implemented in those spaces.
Haskell’s capabilities also extend to integrating packaging systems for smoother operations. Using our expertise to determine the required equipment speed and throughput for each step in the packaging system, Haskell can customise the flow of operations as to not over or underproduce.
To make sure things run smoothly, Haskell conducts an overall equipment effectiveness study to gather data and functional information to optimise line control which leads to a packaging line simulation and emulation for a clearer picture of how the packaging line will function before implementation.
To top things off, the HaskellxRoviSys partnership offers a single-source solution for your automation from design to execution. By analysing the current process of the facility and assessing existing automation, HaskellxRoviSys are then able to propose solutions to best fit business targets.

With these capabilities, HaskellxRoviSys helps further maximise the productivity of the manufacturing process by applying these technologies to automate your facility systems. Devices such as photo eyes, cameras, and lasers used in high-speed lines can detect changes and react to them faster than humans while Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) increase efficiency by granting real-time inventory management and lean inventory management to increase handling ability. The potential IR4.0 technologies offers are endless as manufacturers get to easily customise what, when, where, and how they want to use it.
It is important to HaskellxRoviSys that automation and IR4.0 technologies are implemented as part of the initial plan in building or upgrading a facility as opposed to it being an afterthought. This gives manufacturers a leg up as they will have access to the benefits of state-of-the-art technology from the start.
Manufacturers don’t have to break the bank when looking for new production spaces if they already have warehouses that can be converted and upgraded. While initially it may appear to be overwhelming to the Manufacturer, Haskell makes it easy with a single point of contact that provides everything necessary and more in creating a facility, always reaching for excellence in every aspect.
