Halliday - Kellys Sikabbwele

The project will involve the analysis, redesign and implementation of more environmentally sustainable manufacturing processes in Halliday’s factory. This will also lead to the development of a generic methodology for achieving more environmentally sustainable leagile (lean/agile) manufacturing in other businesses. Halliday has established itself as a leader in the sustainable manufacturing of coffins, producing 26,00 coffins per year. It is Forest Stewardship Council certified as it sources wood, its principle raw material, sustainably. It has invested heavily in a biomass boiler to produce hot water and heat from wood waste, and it supports the Woodland Trust. This project will enable Halliday to expand its drive for high levels of sustainability into the design of its manufacturing operations, while offering an eco-alternative bespoke product.
