For example, Inovet Arques recently invested in a palletising robot in the liquid solutions unit. This robot is not only ergonomic (it reduces MSA: musculoskeletal disorders), but also adapts to different situations, optimises the workspace and maximises production efficiency by ensuring that workers have to lift fewer heavy loads. We are happy to say today that the installation of this robot has been a success!
This is just one example of the investments and improvements that have already been made or are being rolled out to improve our sustainability, namely semi-automatic film wrapping machines, semi-electric scissor lifts, an optimisation system for sorting waste, etc.
We also take the opportunity to tell you about a brand new investment project in progress at Inovet Arques: the purchase of a vacuum lifting machine. Thanks to a suction system, it is possible to handle heavy loads of up to 60 kg effortlessly and safely while handling goods and loading or unloading pallets.
In Arendonk, we do not have such large-scale Corporate Social Responsibility projects, but we do try to make our contribution to corporate social responsibility by, for example, opting for plants as sun blinds or supporting students.
