Centre of Excellence

The Centre of Excellence (CoE) is the world’s most advanced facility for specialist fluid-filled motor manufacture, enabling our next generation technology to be delivered with unrivalled quality assurance and even shorter lead times.

Our manufacturing centre is already certified to ISO Class 9 and has been granted both ASME and nuclear accreditation, and we are the only UK provider of industry-specific hotbed testing.

With a 40 per cent expansion to 6,300 sq. metres (approx 68,000sq.ft) the CoE will enable the company to double production capacity as well as becoming certified as Fit for Nuclear (F4N) with single-piece flow lines embedded with lean manufacturing methodologies and dedicated clean assembly areas and test pits.

“This strategically planned investment
will deliver an extended, fit-for-purpose,
facility and continuous improvement
based environment capable of designing
and manufacturing performance-critical
motors and pumps for our chosen
growth markets.”

Ewan Lloyd-Baker, Chief Executive,
Hayward Tyler Group plc

Increased technical capabilities

The investment is also allowing us to push our technical capabilities. The company is investing heavily in tools and resources to develop its core competencies for the nuclear and subsea markets, focusing on energy-dense and high-efficiency motors, and enhancing its capabilities in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Rotordynamic Analysis, Thermal Modelling and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to support cutting edge product development.

We have the capability to simulate and emulate load effect on engineering, supply chain, production, assembly and test resources
through our WITNESS simulation software.

Operations and planning

We are constantly driving operating efficiencies both internally and in supply chain partnerships – to generate enhanced quality assurance, exceptional peace of mind and confidence for our customers. Central to Hayward Tyler’s CoE is the continued development of our Sales & Operational Planning (S&OP) award winning information systems.

We have embedded “What-if” scenario planning capability to benefit our strategic partners throughout the entire supply chain using predictive simulation technology, proven to maximise performance, optimise throughput, and resource utilisation, all supported by ergonomic workstation design.

S&OP links our sales function with engineering, manufacturing, supply partners and production departments via an in-house, best-in-class, innovative ‘all-in-one’ Epicor (ERP) contract management system.

As the development of the Centre of Excellence for specialist motor manufacture continues apace...

Update 3

After many months of planning and modelling via our Witness Simulation…

“Combined, we can now offer the subsea
oil and gas segment the absolute latest
technology – and then deliver it with best-in class
manufacturing capability. This critical
step ensures our customers receive the most
reliable subsea boosting solutions available
while enhancing the economics for subsea
reservoir development.”
