One of the UK’s leading providers of bespoke business services has announced the launch of a Business Improvement offering to the wind energy sector that draws on over 25 years of industry experience.
Jigsaw Business Group – headquartered in the North East of England – has already, in its 25 years of business, carved a reputation for providing business improvement programmes to some of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers, including Siemens and Vestas.
The business is now using its almost three decades of experience to work with companies across the wind energy supply chain to deliver business improvement programmes that reduce costs and improve operational performance.
Only recently Jigsaw Business Group worked with one of the largest global wind turbine manufacturers to deliver a business improvement programme that included a rapid deployment of engineers across eight European sites combined with the introduction of a quality system for the launch of a new product line.
The project also required providing additional support across the production process for the manufacturing of large parts, the casting of composite turbine blades and the assembly of integral elements of the turbine structure.
Speaking about the company’s 25 years’ experience in business improvement and its experience across the offshore wind market, Director at Jigsaw Business Group, Steve Spratt said: “Jigsaw Business Group has been providing business improvement services to the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers from supplier support through to rapid expansion, process development, new product launches and knowledge transfer for many years now.
“And with the increased focus on the UK’s offshore sector and a growing offshore wind industry, we are seeing an increasing number of manufacturers and suppliers looking at how they can implement business improvement programmes that improve operations, reduce costs and achieve efficiencies.”
As part of Jigsaw Business Group’s drive to deliver business improvement support to companies operating across the wind energy supply chain – and across other STEM manufacturing industries – the company has recently launched its unique patented technology, Jigsawsafe, the first product of its type designed to support teams to collaborate remotely, gather and store data and safely enable teams across various global locations to be onsite from their desk.
The technology is already proving to be a success in the wind energy sector with demo trials already underway with some of the sector’s largest brands.
“Recent events have accelerated demand for Jigsawsafe as companies across the globe look to transform their businesses, ensure robustness of supply chains and keep their workers safe,” added Steve. “Jigsawsafe can support with that, driving down costs, reducing response times, eliminating carbon emissions and keeping supply chains moving.”
