Description

EMP Rotomoulage has over 30 years of expertise and know-how in the manufacture of polyethylene retention containers. In 2020, the Breton company redesigned the weighing stations after a multidisciplinary project involving the operators. This was a first step in reintroducing a little lightness into a physical job. The installation of big bags and pallet trucks at the weighing area has made it possible to divide the load carrying by three.

EMP Rotomoulage a une expertise et un savoir-faire de plus de 30 ans dans la fabrication de conteneurs de rétention en polyéthylène. En 2020, l’entreprise bretonne a réaménagé les postes de pesée au terme d’un travail pluridisciplinaire associant les opérateurs. Une première étape pour réintroduire un peu de légèreté dans un métier physique. La mise en place de big bags et de transpalettes au niveau de la pesée a notamment permis de diviser par trois le port de charge.
