Kemsley Mill has an annual production capacity of around 800,000 tonnes and is the second biggest recovered fibre-based paper operation in Europe. DS Smith invested over £100m to purchase and rebuild PM6 to make lightweight corrugated case material (CCM). Kemsley Mill produces Light Medium, the first recycled lightweight paper manufactured in the UK. Alltask provide an ongoing maintenance contract, offering Scaffold & Insulation services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The contract involves one planned shutdown per week involving up to 15 operatives, outside of the shutdowns. Alltask supports the ongoing needs of the mill on a day to day basis with a fluctuating labour force ranging from 4 – 8 operatives. All operatives hold a CCNSG Safety Passport & are Confined Space trained. Alltask also supports the mill with an ‘out of hours’ call out system with a guaranteed response time of 2 hours. All scaffolds are erected to a bespoke design or TG20 compliance sheet.
