CQual Change Game©
At MNB Precision we take our training protocols very seriously. We recently had CQual join us to guide us through their 6s methodology and allow us to implement at MNB. In the pics below we can see the team are playing the ‘CQual Change Game ©’. This is a giant board game invented to close out the training. It brings all the learned subjects back to the table for a re-cap. It is played between 3 or 4 teams, each with 2 or 3 people. It’s fun to play, the prize being a coveted ‘CQual Change Game © Champions Mug’. We can see they are deep in thought over a tricky question, which, if they answer it correctly, propels them forward in the game.
5s means ‘Workplace Organisation’, making it easier for us to find and place tools and equipment. This allows us to reduce processing times and workflows through giving our customers their product in a quicker time. 6s takes on these 5s rules with ‘Safety’ added. You can learn more about our CQual 6s training and methodology here.

Time Zone Wall Clocks & World Map In the MNB Reception Area
Here at MNB Precision we take great pride in supporting clients all around the world. Building good relationships and working closely with our client base means we are able to offer a fantastic service and this is crucial for our business. Therefore, knowing the regional time zones is critical. Supporting clients as far away as Norway and the USA means supplying goods mainly by sea freight, with the odd occasion where we have had to fly parts in to respond to tight deadlines.

“Being able to visit Buckingham Palace and to be there representing MNB after winning The Queens Award was an honour.”
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise recognise outstanding achievement and offer unparalleled prestige and credibility. We were one of 226 organisations to be named and now we are able to wear the Queen’s Award logo for the next five years.
Our willingness to go for the most complex projects has enabled us to become known as a key player in our field servicing some of the biggest oil and gas OEMs in the world. In fact, our growth in exports has risen from just 5% five years ago to 75% today.
We are beyond proud of the entire workforce at MNB, without which none of this would have been possible. Take a look at our award video to find out more about what it means to us.

Our New Pressure Testing Facility Is Starting To Take Shape
The first phase of our new Pressure Testing facility is starting to take shape. The new blast proof enclosure complete with hydraulics, control panels and fluid tanks are now on site and will be installed in the coming weeks.
Assembly test benches are in manufacture which will allow MNB to assemble various Downhole Tool components outside of the enclosure then slide into place to a secure locking mechanism before applying up to 15,000 psi to test the assemblies for leaks.
This additional capability will allow MNB Precision to machine, assemble and test complete equipment and offer our clients a full turnkey package on a range of product lines.
You can take a look at our new Pressure Testing facility in its spot on the shop floor…
