Practical Proactivity – A Cure for Blindness in the Industry

At Spiroflow, practical proactivity stands as a cornerstone principle guiding our approach to customer service. Rooted in our ethos, this philosophy emphasizes proactive solutions tailored to address our customers’ unique challenges swiftly and effectively. With practical proactivity at the forefront of our operations, we ensure prompt and pragmatic responses to every client’s needs, solidifying our reputation as a leading conveyor engineering company.

Why Is Ignoring Evolution in the Business World Dangerous

The adjective ‘busy’ is derived from the noun ‘business,’ Old English in origin (‘bisignes,’ from Northumbria) and at its time defining “care, anxiety, occupation.” This definition may seem obsolete, but these three words are actually quite aligned with the world of work in which we live. Being in the fortunate position to have experienced growth in our business, it becomes tempting to rest on one’s success and accept that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” 

Our controversial opinion of this popular saying would be this – we believe it should be ignored completely. Blinded by a small amount of success and ignoring evolution in both the marketplace and society is dangerous, and it’s destined to inhibit you when any period of good fortune is over.

Spiroflow Puts Focus on Continuous Improvements

Here at Spiroflow, we have become increasingly sensitive to the lack of evolution in the marketplace and have been conscious of not just our performance but that of our customer base too. Oftentimes, when we discuss improvements with our loyal customers, they say that they are limited by time and unable to consider these matters internally. 

But instead of leaving the conversations there, we wanted to try and solve the problem. We know that a fresh pair of eyes observing a situation is invaluable. So why can’t we be these eyes, helping improve our customers’ production processes? Positioning ourselves as an improvement team, as well as a supplier, has therefore become of huge importance to us.

Practical Proactivity – One of Spiroflow’s Main Principles

It’s natural for companies to be reactive to individual problems rather than being able to realize a long-term solution. Detecting a potential issue before it arises is another thing that is habitually ignored in the fog of day-to-day duties. We’ve seen many hard-working engineers and site operatives in this situation, almost too afraid to implement change for fear of missing targets – perhaps not realizing the long-term benefits. 

However, finding a way of incorporating changes into a workflow can increase efficiencies and, as a consequence, profitability, which benefits everyone. We like to call this concept ‘practical proactivity.’ Prevention is always better than cure.

How Can Spiroflow Help Your Business?

We have been conducting exercises to help our improvements, and also the development of our customers. The evolving state of factories comes with an increased number of processes, sometimes to the extent that certain procedures have become unnecessarily overdone.

We offer a complimentary 40-minute “handling health check” on all aspects of bulk solids handling, plus a summary document from one of our qualified Spiroflow engineers. Everyone can afford 40 minutes for the sake of valuable improvements! It’s not only the appraisals that benefit customers but also awareness of what technical improvements are out there – for instance, doubling bulk bag filling rates or conveyor innovations.

We will look at simplifying processes, and if one of our conveyors can do the job of three existing units, then everyone will benefit. An appraisal from us can enlighten you about new possibilities that could help your productivity and morale, making life easier for your production process and operatives.

If Our Customers Grow, We Grow 

Even small changes can produce big results. Challenging your teams to optimize even one of their more menial tasks per day would bring cumulatively significant results, thereby freeing up minutes of resources per team per shift open to achieve increased productivity. Sometimes, businesses are living with problems they have learned to put up with, but not making the most of the investments may damage the business

For us, any customer with handling issues or product flow problems should feel free to speak to us at any time. Our teams have cross-industry experience, and sharing it is part of our customer care. One cliché that we firmly accept is that if our customers grow, we grow, and so we should support them as much as possible. It’s not about living with things, it’s about fixing them!

As steadfast members of the Solids Handling and Processing Industry (SHAPA), we pride ourselves on our expertise and reputation. We don’t just talk about it, we prove it and actively engage with those willing to use our skills. Spiroflow most definitely adheres to the original definition of ‘business.’ We “care” deeply about what we do and our customers. We are “anxious” about improving beyond measure, and our “occupation” is to encourage proactivity across the industry, strengthening ourselves and each other during these challenging times.
