From humble beginnings in 1980 in Mr. Marcel Mercier’s workshop, up to industry leader in factory finished flooring, what an amazing success story! Their Drummond plant is fully vertically integrated, with state-of-the-art equipment, probably the most advanced automation in the industry. Naturally, in this environment, workplace safety is taken very seriously.

EZSecur was contacted during the initial phase of their lockout program Their expertise in lockout cabinets made it possible to match a very demanding scope of work:

Cabinet perfectly fine dustproof;                                                                                                Clear view to insulation boxes content;                                                                                Large padlock capacity, with several sets of specialists series;                              Ability to store barcode lock cards, instruction booklets;                                    Various storage and cabinet identification;                                                                              Of course, ergonomics was a key factor.

EZSecur designed and produced a model and a prototype. When this was fine-tuned and approved, EZSecur was able to deliver all the cabinets to be deployed within a tight deadline and sharpened budget.

Mercier had still some way to go along their lockout program: fine-tuning processes, employees training and finally cabinets and equipment deployment.

What a great achievement for the EZSecur, always eager to innovate!
