Case Study

Confectionery line support services 

client Confectionery line support services
challenge Full-service support system integrated into a food-line extension
solution Turnkey design, install, commission project within an operating factory
benefit On time, budget, spec and now operating successfully

This £1 million flagship project required a detailed understanding of the client’s initial brief, plus the strategic evaluation of all technical and commercial targets, to design, install and commission a new state-of-the-art robotic confectionery production line. The turnkey project was carried out in a fully functioning food factory, where planning and hygienic methods of working was a prerequisite to eliminate disruption to production schedules.


Working closely with the client’s own process team we identified innovative design opportunities to improve productivity, operability, reliability, cost-efficiency and ease of maintenance. As well as M∓E and data services distribution the project included the installation of new air handling plant, air cooled glycol chillers, stainless steel service support structure for process pipework and a modular GRP plant room housing steam to hot water plant for cooking processes.


This fully compliant project delivered on programme within budget and without any disruption to factory production is now regarded by the client as a model exemplar for all future works.
