XMAS-DONATIONS-STEVENS

When Stevens’ marketing manager Amanda Hatton read Billian IT Solutions’ article in Lancashire Business View about their Christmas present appeal, she knew instantly that the team at Stevens Traceability would be more than happy to help this great local cause.

Staff at Stevens have collected over 30 gifts for underprivileged children in the Blackburn and Darwen community who may otherwise get nothing. The gifts will be distributed by local charity, Secret Santa Ltd.

“When I read the article about the appeal, I knew we could make a difference even if it was just to one child this Christmas” said Amanda.

Well done team!

Engineer Metal Detection Training

Metal Detection Training for Senior Engineers

By News

Staying ahead of industry requirements is a priority for Stevens Traceability, and it’s for this reason, our Senior Technical and Service engineers recently undertook training on metal detection systems to enhance their knowledge and skills to support our customers in the UK and Ireland.

As experts in traceability software and weighing equipment, Stevens Traceability have been working with the food industry for over a century. Our service division carries out repairs, servicing and calibration testing to process equipment including scales, checkweighers, and metal detection systems which is a legislative requirement for food manufacturers.

With contamination in food being a big risk for food manufacturers, it’s important that an auditable system of preventative measures is in place to avoid product recalls, loss of sales and potential reputational damage.

In 2018, 2331 incidents including allergens, heavy metals, and foreign bodies were reported to the UK Food Standards Agency which has increased significantly compared to 1567 reported incidents in 2014.

David Astridge, Operations Manager said:

“We pride ourselves in the professionalism of our engineers who undergo rigorous training, both in-house and externally to ensure they are fully qualified in today’s industries. Metal detection systems are an imperative asset for many of our food manufacturing customers, so this training has helped to ensure that we can assist our customers with all their servicing and calibration needs.”
