TFL was started in 1995, but now operates out of 25,000 square feet of factory/warehouse at the centre of the universe, Brightlingsea, on a spacious industrial estate. The premises are protected by a police-response RedCare alarm system.
There are two directors:
Susan Smith (Production) runs the daily operations, with the assistance of her Team.
Rick Nesham (Managing) handles the specialised projects and manages the infrastructure of the business and designs the workplace equipment.
We employ a mixture of full-time and part-time staff working on site as well as a number of home workers. If an employee can provide the quality of work we demand, then we will allow them to work the hours they wish. This flexible approach to employment makes for high morale and an unusually committed labour force, which is reflected in the service we can provide for you. This flexibilty works both ways, allowing us to expand or contract our capacity according to activity levels.
Each Team member takes responsibility for a number of individual clients. You can speak directly to the team member responsible for your work without the need to go through a switchboard, making the whole business relationship much more personal.
In our development workshop we design & build our own workstations to complement your specific products' characteristics. Each workstation takes into account the nature & volume of the product to be packed or assembled. They are ergonomically designed and can easily be varied in height and position.
We design and build our own packing devices for unusual tasks.
All this attention to detail feeds benefits through to you as we can more easily pack & despatch your products resulting in more orders out the door and keeping costs down through greater efficiency.
