Investment Programme reap benefits

Posted: Thursday, December 11, 2014

Swancote have been extremely busy over the last 18 months, not only from a production point of view having won several new customer accounts, as well as the growth of our established accounts; but we have also been focusing on a multitude of much needed plant enhancement projects as part of a major investment programme.

Over the past 2 years, Greenvale will have invested over £2.5m into the Swancote site, a significant sum of money and one that is reflective of the businesses commitment to the future of the processing sector. This considerable investment programme to a plant that is over 20 years old, is making a real difference to Swancote’s efficiencies, the plants reliability and will allow us to maximise our capabilities in the future!

Investments include the following:

  • New Primary Boiler
  • Animal Feed Plant (we are now manufacturers of Severn Starch for the UK Livestock market)
  • Upgrading 2 Optical Sorters
  • New Trimming Tables
  • Replacement Metal Detectors
  • Line 1 Steam Upgrade
  • Upgraded Cook Control System on Pasteurised Lines
  • Automated Bulk Filling Module on Fresh Line
  • New Multivac and product handling system
  • And other general re-fabrications
