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.

Give a Gift from the Heart – Mothers days Gifts
Mother’s Day crafts ideas don’t have to be elaborate they just have to be made from the heart. These crafts also take Mother Nature to heart and are made with one of more recycled material like scrap paper, old books, even those little plugs from milk and juice cartons.
One of the best parts of creating with your child is the time you spend together. Parent and tot projects like this Beach Shell DIY Craft Picture Frame are a special time to not only work together on something but also to practice taking turns something that can never be done too much .
Gather your materials. You will need some cardboard ( 2x as large as you want the frame to be) , a large magnet , crayons, shells, hot glue gun and glue, scissors , tape and a picture.
Start by cutting your cardboard in half, then cutting an opening in one piece for the frame.
Tape your picture ( I trimmed mine) on the other half of the cardboard. Trim the cardboard so that it’s no larger than the frame piece , you don’t want it peeking out from underneath.
Have your child decorate the frame with crayons.
Heat up the glue gun. Glue shells on, Glue the magnet on the back of the piece with the picture. Glue the two pieces together and let cool.
Gather your materials. You will need some milk carton plugs, hot glue gun, hot glue, seed beads, and a small dish that won’t stick to the glue. I used a 2nd dish for the ring to cool in but that was just my preference.
- Pour a mixture of seed beads into a small dish. You don’t want to use too big a dish because you want the beads to be close together .
- Turn the plug inside out , so when you slide it on your finger the solid part stands up against your finger.
- Add hot glue to the solid part that will be facing out. You want a lot of glue.
- Quickly dip it into the beads, gently press it into them.
- Let dry! It’s that easy. Just remember to let it dry completely before wearing it.

With over 20 years in the industry and leaders in marquee hiring they have a vast amount of experience combined with expertise makes them a dynamic team always coming up with new ideas and enhancing their skills and product range.
If you are getting married and wishing for that very special fairy tale wedding speak to them for the best advice on wedding marquees hire available.
Some ideas that caught my eye on their site:
Why not have a Chinese hat marquee for a small reception area? Or make the marquee individual with our huge range of coloured roof overlays, linings and swags? Black Starcloth over the dance floor? The possibilities are endless. We can make the marquee as grand or as simple as you like. One of our advisors would be delighted to come and visit you with our portfolio to discuss your requirements.
I have also decided to share an interesting article I found on their website:
HOW DO WE DELIVER A RELIABLE POWER SUPPLY TO THE MARQUEE?
A recent large electrical fire in London, brought the importance of the provision of power for any marquee hire to the forefront of our minds here at JF & Trafalgar Marquee Hire.
The correct provision of power for any event, and outdoor event involving marquee hire is crucial. It is also often an area that is overlooked, and one that is brushed to the side.
Whilst this may be the case, it does not solve the issue of providing the correct supply for the demand in the marquee. Not only can this lead to serious health and safety implications (it’s worth noting that we are members of our industry body MUTA). It could also seriously impact the smooth running of you event. Not to mention, the worst case scenario, plunging it into darkness.
At JF & Trafalgar Marquees we would much rather focus on the event itself and its positive outcome, helping you on your way to deliver an amazing, and unforgettable experience (for all the right reasons). To that end, electrical supply is one of the key factors we discuss and advise our clients on. To ensure your exacting requirements are met, we use qualified and registered (17th edition) electricians for power installations in our marquees. They are consulted from concept to delivery and updated on the life cycle of your event, taking into account any changes that may occur, regardless of how large or small these may be.
On larger functions and events, involving significant cabling and distribution, we often supply an onsite standby electrician in addition to our standard 24hr call out facility. Should you be curious about how we do what we do, an example of such an event, can be seen here (where we supplied, a mains generator, standby and standby electrician, along with all cabling, sockets, and lighting).
The type of power supply we recommend and install, depends on the equipment and requirements from services in and around the marquee. Typically, this takes the form of a mains installation from the house or nearest building; this may be 32amps or up to 63amp three phase. Once the supply is taken from the house/building or generator, it is fed to a temporary distribution board within the marquee or catering/services area and then distributed to all relevant areas of the marquee. This could include catering areas, band, DJ, bars etc.
In addition we also offer a full generator hire service, should it not be possible to access mains electricity. Alternatively a generator can be hired simply as a standby (we supply these with automatic changeover) should the main generator or mains power fail.
