JWCI ltd are pleased to have been awarded the contract for a major restructure and refit at the Northwich Cheshire site for the global leader in the hygiene industry, Ecolab.This prestigious contract was awarded to JWCI after the world’s largest sustainability services company, Nalco merged with hygiene giant Ecolab.
The merger means Ecolab now have over 41,000 employees in more than 170 countries. Founded in 1923 the merger brings together two highly complimentary industries to provide global sustainability services and hygiene solutions across the food, beverage, hygiene and medical industries.
The joining of the two businesses saw the Ecolab manufacturing facility at Cheadle Hulme being relocated to join the larger Ecolab/Nalco site at Northwich in Cheshire.
JWCI have worked on projects for Ecolab previously and proved to be highly competent in their professional manner and expertise both on site and in the design and manufacture stages.
Rob Pettener from Ecolab UK said “JWCI proved to be a reliable and flexible contractor to EcoLab. JWCI are well known and respected within the industry and have clearly demonstrated a track record to deliver on large and complex installation projects.”
Phase one of this large project was undertaken by JWCI in partnership with Ecolab’s onsite team and proved such a success that JWCI became solely responsible for Phase two.
Phase one of the contract, which began in December 2012 included supply and installation of pipe work, removal and installation of tanks and mixing vessels plus supply, fabrication and installation of new tailored pipework and mezzanine floor supports. The later phase involved the strip out of the new site which included provision and management of crane lifts and providing all required health and safety documentation surrounding this. JWCI provide a full design, manufacture, installation and maintenance service to their customers and this streamlined ‘one supplier’ approach means greater peace of mind for the client.
The larger second phase, a complete strip out and replacement project, included decommissioning of existing mixer tanks and pipework plus installing new steam lines, steam traps, valves and instrumentation. New gantries and pipework were fabricated and installed by JWCI’s highly experienced on-site team.
JWCI work to the highest safety standards and are compliant to all current British health and Safety guidelines and best practice schemes. JWCI are proud to be ISO 9001 registered and SafeContractor accredited. They are also CHAS approved and registered with Constructionline to provide the highest standards whilst on-site.
JWCI’s expertise in providing bespoke solutions tailored to their customers exact requirements meant that Ecolab could streamline their processes and improve efficiency and be assured of excellent workmanship. This coupled with the high level of customer service provided by JWCI meant a winning combination.
