We are a manufacturing support services provider, running critical parts of our clients' operations on a contract outsourced basis.
We use a managed service model in the first instance for all operational activity with our clients. This promotes outsourcing on a proactive basis, as an alternative to the agency model where the service provider performs on-demand services and bills the customer only for the work done, with no management or consistency.
With Aktrion, the management & supervision of the staff & operational activities are fully provided. The staff are permanent Aktrion employees, with ownership and responsibility for the individuals resting solely with ourselves.
In its simplest form, we can provide trained and managed teams of operators to work with your existing staff to support variations in production. With our extensive operational experience, this offers a more cost-effective solution than using temporary agency labour.
We can fully resource and manage entire operational areas, freeing up your staff to focus on your core production activities. We match resource requirements with production needs, cross-training teams to provide a flexible and high quality service.
The commitment, reliability and training of our staff, coupled with our vast experience, allows us to utilise a smaller number of personnel than a conventional agency, thereby further reducing your costs.
In addition to providing managed teams of operators, we also have extensive expertise in production management and in particular “lean” production. This means we can resource the management itself or provide management consultancy to assist you in improving productivity and the efficiency of your production operations. Some of the management tools that we have successfully implemented include:
- Six Sigma
We provide teams of material handlers, all fully licensed, to provide a highly flexible resource and ensure optimum manning at all times. As part of this service, we can also provide the relevant equipment including pallet trucks, fork lift trucks, scissor lifts, etc. on a contract basis.
We can also deliver cost effective training solutions for your staff in addition to our own team, should you require additional assistance.
Packing and Dispatch
We bring extensive experience of running packing and dispatch operations across many industry sectors. Our flexible resourcing, process improvement analysis and tailored techniques combine to maximise the effectiveness of your operation and help reduce costs.
As part of this operation we can include the packaging materials which further simplifies the service for you.
Our extensive experience working within time-critical operations translates to a fundamental awareness of delivery timeframe, sensitivity and the changing requirements that challenge businesses today.
We can help anticipate these challenges and requirements and can provide you with a high quality, responsive service, adding value throughout. We utilise all our experience and knowledge of working in varied market sectors, and can adapt our processes to fulfil any logistics requirements you may have.

Sequencing & Assembly
Performing assembly work prior to main production and then presenting the completed assembly in correct sequence to the production line can be highly effective in improving efficiency, reducing cost, and reducing significant WIP/Stock of both the sub-assembly operation and the main production operation.
We have proven capability in applying this methodology, in particular to the automotive, white goods and general manufacturing industries. Assembly work is usually best performed on-site or close to the main production, but we can also set up operational facilities off-site to meet your specific requirements if this benefits your business.
In addition to running production lines, including final assembly, testing and packing, we also have the skills and management capabilities to take care of your sequencing needs. When combined with our structured ISO9002 approach to product assembly, quality management, and all our associated activities, we are confident in providing a package that can make a difference to your business operations.
