JG Pears is a family business founded in 1972 by Jeff Pears, who has developed it to become a leading processor of animal by-products and food waste in the UK.
The TOMRA sorters have exceeded all expectations, and Vicky Prussia is very pleased with the results: “The main thing that we wanted to concentrate on was the removal of any plastics. After we’d installed TOMRA, we started to look at some of the things that the machine was taking out of our process, and some of the things that we saw were things like plastics, wood, rubber. Just having the TOMRA machines in the factory, we can see now that we are removing more of the foreign bodies.”
“Non-conformances with our customers have reduced dramatically, and regarding the TOMRAs we see very, very little waste and foreign bodies in our material. The current customers already have seen the difference in the finished product and we’re also having lots of interest from additional customers asking and enquiring about buying our material.”
- Craig Harrison, JG Pears Site Manager.
Once installed the sorter is easy to use, as Team Leader Przemyslaw Twardowski found: “I operate the whole process and operate the new TOMRA machine. It is really easy because the training provided was excellent, and it’s really simple to explain to people how the machine works.” Craig Harrison adds: “TOMRA came over and trained all members of staff from Engineering, Production and Quality.”
The team at JG Pears is extremely pleased with the way the entire project developed, from identifying possible solutions all the way to installation and start-up: “Working with TOMRA worked really well. Looking outside of the projects, how we can help each other, how we can improve the systems, how we can improve the products, TOMRA was always there to help, always there on the phone, via email. Whenever we asked for assistance, they came to our site and they helped us.”
