About the CompanyThe main aim of the project is the optimization of Cherry Pipes manufacturing facilities in order to meet ever increasing sales demand without sacrificing the quality of their existing products. Athlone IT will aid the Graduate with the implementation and characterization of all incoming feed stock to all three plants, which will lead to better quality products and less defect parts being produced. The Graduate will be tasked with creating a standardised protocol for the identification of sub-standard material. This step of the project will eliminate the needless transportation of flake/resin between plants. Optimisation of all extrusion lines will be carried out to increase production capacity, reduce the need for expensive virgin materials, and optimize the current blend formulation whilst reducing energy costs associated with each process.
