The RPC Group is Europe’s leading manufacturer of rigid plastic packaging. With just under 50 autonomous sites in 12 countries, the company employs in excess of 6,500 people.
RUMM was asked to investigate energy usage at RPC’s Llantrisant plant and provide solutions and suggestions for reducing the annual energy bill.
Following the completion of the aM&T system, where 17 meters were installed across the site, a benchmarking exercise then took place in order to ascertain where energy was being used and equally where it was being used non-efficiently. (energy management UK)
RUMM and RPC then engaged in an energy management partnership to achieve savings. This included regular weekly meetings to discuss options that could save the company money.
Site analysis was carried out based on production output, SEC and this was benchmarked to reduce consumption.
As a result of the measures put in place, energy consumption in the first 5 months dropped from 1354528 kWh to 1131995 kWh, with specific energy consumption reducing by 14%. This equated to a £120k saving in the first year alone.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee
Marquees for sale are available in a range of sizes and a range of qualities. The better quality marquees use thicker steel framework (34mm upwards) and PVC covers rather than PE or poly/PVC. The weight of the PVC material used on the marquees (measured in gsm -grams per square metre) is an indication of the thickness but not the quality, the true strength of PVC comes from the inner core material before it is coated.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee. With a good design additional bracing can make a marquee stronger eliminating the need for a thicker framework. Having interchangeable side panels can give much greater functionality so a marquee can be tailored for any site on which it is erected.
Throughout the world marquees are referred to as party tents but in the UK the term party tents usually refers to smaller marquees 3m, 4m or 6m wide made from steel tube. Party tent style marquees can usually offer a stronger but more economical alternative to traditional larger marquees – party tents for sale
Marquee accessories like linings, lighting and flooring can transform a marquee from a shelter to an impressive temporary structure suitable for any party or event. It is worth researching the availability of replacement parts to ensure you will not be let down in the future for the want of one damaged component.

When looking to buy a marquee the first thing to do is decide what size(s) of marquee you need, only then can you decide which range of marquee is most suitable for you.
There are several ways of calculating this:
Measure your garden. If space is limited your guest list may be restricted by the maximum size of marquee able to fit in the space.
If your garden is an awkward size then consider using more than one marquee connected together to cover the space. Multiple marquees can take a little more thought in planning a successful party but please contact us, we’re marquee specialists and are here to help.
If you need help in picturing the layout of a marquee then check out our interactive marquee planner and experiment with different layouts.
The following size guide shows the capacity (seated or standing) or each size of marquee. Size guides can vary greatly, this is due to the variety of ways a marquee can be used. For example a 6x12m marquee can seat 70-80 people at round tables but if you allow for buffet tables and/or a dance floor then the capacity is reduced.

“I’ve been an escort at Dukes for about 4 months now and am extremely happy with the service. I was recently made redundant from work and the thought of applying for a new job at my age terrified me. I had looked into escorting a few times in the past but was never confident enough to actually go through with it, given I was now unemployed I thought I’d give it a go.
The sign up procedure was very straight forward I was allowed to set my own rates and choose an alias name as I was a little concern of what people may say /think. After a few weeks of joining I received my first booking! I was very nervous to go but the team at Dukes help me feel at ease as I was a managed escort they arranged all my bookings and screened clients for my protection.
The date went extremely well I was made to feel like a princess, there was no awkwardness the gentleman was very attentive and I was informed he was a regular client which helped me to relax.
I am now receiving regular bookings and have even increased my hourly rate. I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of becoming an escort, being paid to be pampered what more could a girl ask for?”
“I’ve been single many years now meanwhile all my friends are having babies and getting married (always the way), the thought of attending a wedding alone was highly embarrassing for me. I was recommended by a work colleague to try out hiring an escort as he had previously used this site and spoke very highly of their services.
I had a look on the site there was many beautiful females to choose from in all types of areas, I came across a lady called Maria who seemed well suited to me as her biography had many similar interest to myself. I firstly booked her for a dinner date; I thought I’d get to know her a little better before bringing her around my friends.
The date went smoothly she was punctual and even more beautiful in person; we shared a lot of similar interest and got on very well. I then went ahead and booked her for the wedding again she was on time and looked amazing! My friends instantly took a liking to her as did I.
I have now a regular client of hers along with a few other females on the site, the booking procedure is very straight forward, I would definitely recommend this site to anyone needing companionship like myself.

SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH OPENS WOODBERRY WETLANDS
Our team had quite the ‘wild’ day out last weekend. Woodberry Wetlands approached our company to provide an event space for the opening of their beautiful wetlands centre on 30th April, after all it has been closed to the public for 200 years.
To add to the sense of occasion, the centre was opened by eminent broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough.
With a note from the client; “Thanks for a grand job at Woodberry Wetlands launch”, it is another success to add to our proved track record in delivering outstanding marquee events.
The opening of Woodberry Wetlands, a beautiful space centre to be opened by Sir David Attenborough on 30th April.
The challenge was simple for Marquee Hire Surrey, to create an exceptional marquee event space to hold VIP’s, press, and of course, Sir David for the opening of this stunning space in London.
Build and de-rig were to be on the same day, so our team needed to use a structure that could be set up and taken down within this timelines.
Whilst the site spans the size of over 13 football pitches, the size allocated for the marquee was somewhat smaller.
Marquee Hire arrived on site on Saturday at 0730 to begin build of a 6m x21m marquee, which needed to be weighted using our marquee weights as it was situated on hard standing. The marquee needed one side open to enjoy the stunning vistas across the wetlands, with access to the rear for catering a services. At one end of the marquee a small stage was constructed for speeches and formalities.
There is no function that is too much of a challenge for Marquee Hire and Marquee Hire Sussex to handle. Their years of knowledge and expertise shows in the professionalism they show with every event.
