A sandwich supplier to a major supermarket wanted to increase its output from their existing factory.
To supply two modular complexes, linked to the factory, allowing the customer to dismantle existing internal cold stores, thus increasing production space. Then improve their process flow and 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.
An additional 300 square meters of an additional floor space was achieved for the chilled product. However, the major objective was not additional chill capacity, but increased 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!”
