The Project

A sandwich supplier to a major supermarket who wanted to increase output from their existing factory.

Our Solution

To supply two modular complexes, linked to the factory, allowing the customer to dismantle existing internal cold rooms, thus increasing production space, and then improve their process flow plus add a new packing machine.

One complex was a three bay modular chilled complex with a single loading dock attached, for bread intake. The second was a separate four bay modular chilled complex, but with two loading docks attached, for finished goods awaiting dispatch.

This solution provided an additional 300 square metres of additional floor space for chilled product but the major objective was not additional chill capacity: it was productivity and on a follow up call one year later it was confirmed by the site management that the project had resulted in an additional 70,000 sandwich packs being produced per day.

In the words of the site director  "this was more than strategy; it was a 'game changer' for this site!"
