We've looked at various measures and we'll be making recommendations to senior management next week. We think the company should consider introducing an evening shift to maintain seventy percent capacity on all the machines. We're also aware of the hold-ups on the packaging line, and we'd like to bring in an additional machine and split the line in two. That'll speed things up. We did consider bonus schemes for certain categories of employee, but decided that this wouldn't have sufficient impact.


When we first acquired the factory premises, the rent was well within our means. But because that area of the city has developed more quickly than others, it's now a prime site and the cost of retaining it has risen accordingly. In fact, we would make considerable savings by relocating to the industrial estate on the other side of town, which would improve product distribution, anyway. A second suggestion is to vacate the top floor of the building - we do have fewer staff now.
