When DMS technologies (Romsey, Hampshire) were looking to develop their business, Duvine was a natural choice as many of their products (power supplies and chargers) were complementary to DMS’ specialist batteries ranges. The company also had a team of engineers capable of adapting to the broader product spectrum. The premises at Duvine however had lacked investment and had become rather tired.
Often the state of a workplace is reflected in the well-being of the work-force and although the Duvine engineers and staff were well motivated it was obvious that their office & workshops could do with improvement.
Among those improvements, which had been previously ear-marked by the DMS directors very early on , were the replace the ageing boiler and windows that were well past their prime. A study of the workflow led to the offices, workshop and technical areas being re-organised, providing the personnel with improved, more comfortable work-spaces.
Finally, the exterior of the building and the area around the building itself was given a face-lift. Whereas up until now the building itself look unwelcoming and littered with wheelie-bins etc now there is a bright, fresh structure cleared of clutter, a bonus for company staff and visitors alike.
