Machinery Paintwork. 


Work continues with the overhead crane also getting some attention. The difference it makes is really noticeable. Green and red is continuing to spread around the machine floor.


For some time now we have been sprucing up the paintwork in the main machine room. Mike and Frank have been steadily cleaning and painting the beams and the girderwork that supports the crane.

 This is a particularly dirty and repetitive job but the results have been noticed by all. We really are looking smart where the have been working!
