Electronics manufacture: West Control Solutions

West Control Solutions, global specialists in advanced temperature and process control instrumentation, has recently completed a major expansion of its UK manufacturing centre in Brighton.

The Challenge

Critical to the project’s success was the extensive planning and logistics management required to ensure disruption to customers was kept to a minimum which is why Ecotile Flooring Ltd were chosen to supply and install their ESD interlocking floor tiles.

Location: Brighton

Space: 1200m² installed in two phases one year apart

  1. West Control Solutions needed peace of mind that their advanced electronic devices were protected from damage by static electricity.
  1. It was important to ensure that West Control Solutions’ focus on quality and attention to detail was reflected in the appearance of its premises.
  1. The flooring solution needed to be exceptionally robust, durable and easy to maintain whilst meeting British and European standards for electro-static protection.

The Solution

Market-leading manufacturer of interlocking floor tiles, Ecotile, designs and produces its comprehensive range at its UK production facility – providing durable and safe flooring solutions that can be installed with minimal disruption in commercial and industrial applications around the world.

“We worked closely with West Control Solutions to ensure we installed their floor as quickly and efficiently as possible without disruption to production. Our interlocking floor tiles can be dry laid over any hard surface with minimal preparation and long term maintenance will also be hassle free. All our tiles are guaranteed for ten years and the ESD performance will match the lifetime of the tile.”

James Gedye, Managing Director, Ecotile

“As an electronics manufacturer the quality and integrity of our products are paramount and a conductive floor is an integral part of production. It wasn’t viable for us to shut down operations to install an ESD floor so the fact that Ecotile could go straight over the top while we continued to work was a huge advantage. We have used different colours to delineate walkways and now only need to do one monthly test to check the floor is giving us the ESD protection we need. Additional advantages we weren’t expecting include antifatigue benefits and acoustic insulation so the overall working environment has been improved noticeably. This has made a significant improvement to our facility!”

Steve Allen, Operations Director of West Control Solutions

A Sustainable Solution

All Ecotiles come with a 10 year product warranty as standard.

Manufactured using the highest grade material, once the tiles have reached the end of their useful life, we will collect the tiles – free of charge – and recycle them to produce the next generation of Ecotile.
