Simon Taylor, chief engineer, introduces the work of the engineering team at the Mars factory in Slough. Ed Godsell, a project engineer who started on the Mars graduate scheme, explains the critical role of engineers in getting products onto the market. The production line runs 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and so the facilities are designed to avoid down time.

Sustainability is important, and the factory has zero fossil fuel energy use and zero greenhouse gas emissions. They achieve this through looking at how the processes operates, analysing where the waste is and minimizing it or converting it into useable energy.
