They Just Get Bigger

In February 2016 IK-UK manufactured 7 of the largest foam pigs the factory had ever produced measuring over 2 metres in diameter and over 3 metres in length. Start to finish 4 weeks; whilst new moulds were made a toolbox talk took place to discuss the method of manufacture and in particular, safety aspect as the operatives had to work at dangerous heights. Production and removal of the product from the mould required six employees and required great teamwork with other departments assisting. The size of these monsters certainly stretched our capabilities as the building is only 8 meters high and 7 meters height was required to remove the pig from the mould. Many have said this is the maximum size we can produce! Well, challenge us I have an idea!
