We’re up to speed on the new CE mark fabricated steelwork regulations – are you?

From 1st July 2014 the regulations surrounding fabricated structural steelwork are changing. It is to become mandatory for all steel fabrications delivered to site to carry the CE mark. 

CE marking demonstrates compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product. The symbol has been widely used for several years in relation to toys and electrical goods, but this change is new to the construction industry. CE marking provides proof that the product meets working and safety requirements and is essentially ‘fit for purpose’.

Major Project for Ecolab by JWCI Ltd

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.

JWCI Ltd – Investing in the future

JWCI Limited is a long established company, located in the heart of the UK with our Head Office in Cheadle and manufacturing facilities in Fole, Uttoxeter. We design, construct and install processing equipment for a wide range of customers in the dairy, food, chemical and other process industries.

The current economic climate is proving tough for many businesses but JWCI are ‘bucking the trend’ with big plans over the next 12 months. 

With many years in the industry under their belt  JWCI are investing in a site expansion of their current manufacturing facilities in Fole. The expansion will improve facilities and help meet the increasing demand for high quality engineering.

The larger workshops and improved employee facilities will increase productivity and allow JWCI to undertake larger commissions in-house and reduce manufacturing times.

There will also be a new testing facility for skids and equipment to minimize commissioning on site. 

Holding a larger range of parts in permanent stock, thanks to the new expansion, will reduce delivery times even further for customers ordering plant processing equipment 7 days a week. An important service when plant down time can be so costly for manufacturers.

All this means that JWCI will now be offering a two year guarantee on all their prefabricated work as standard. This increase, from the usual 12 month guarantee offered by many of their competitors, highlights the assurance they have in their products being of the highest quality.

The site expansion is due to be fully operational by July 2012 so why not pay us a visit?

SAFEcontractor Accredited

JWCI Ltd is again proud to be one of the latest group of companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record. JWCI Ltd have achieved the SAFEcontractor status for the last few years and are pleased to say have been successful again this year. 

The Staffordshire based firm received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors. 
Employing 12 people JWCI Ltd is principally involved in the dairy, food and chemical industries with a proven track record for high quality and professional service. Recent clients have included Quenby Hall Dairy, one of only six ‘Stilton’ cheese makers.

“We felt it was important to become SAFEcontractor accredited in order to highlight to potential customers our dedication to best practice and quality of service” Kerry Callear, JWCI Ltd

The company’s application to receive SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. 
SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the companys ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
SAFEcontractor accreditation is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contract services.
John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said “Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies”.
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that JWCI Ltd has done. The firms continued high standards set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector”.
Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standards are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website, www.safecontractor.com.

JWCI Centralised Cleaning Systems Overview

Centralised Cleaning systems designed and built to your requirements. We understand the importance of hygiene within the food industry, so can advise you on the best type of equipment to use, where there is not a suitable “off the shelf” solution we, design, build and install bespoke hygienic cleaning systems.


As standard we offer:

  • Free site visits to assess your needs 
  • Designed & installed to meet your production demand
  • Up to 30 users on one system
  • Pipe work & equipment installed & commissioned


Hygiene Cleaning Systems

JWCI will also design and manufacture bespoke pressure cleaning systems to suit a customer’s requirement.
These range from single wall mounted machine to larger multi-pump units for multi user wash down requirements. 
Larger water wash down requirements usually consist of a multi-pump which will be more energy efficient especially where there is a requirement for one or two operators most of the working day but at the end of a shift the cleaning is more intense requiring many more operators using the system simultaneously. This can be an efficient method to provide hot pressurized water via a ring main system to various points around a factory.
All of our central pressure systems can be used to apply foam chemicals and sanitizers, hot & cold water. For this we use a number of options ranging from a single foam venturi to a central chemical distribution system whereby the chemical is pumped to satellite dispensers installed in the factory. At these wash stations the foam and sanitizer can be selected and applied using the appropriate lance.

Types of Centralised Wash down systems

Both low pressure systems, medium pressure systems and high pressure systems are available or a combination of pressures can be accommodated by one pumping unit.
The correct cleaning pressure for each cleaning task can be determined by using our free factory survey. This will ensure that you get the most energy efficient, cost effective cleaning system for your factory.
We also place great importance on after sales service arrangements. This can be by means of a “pay as you receive” service plan, to a fully paid up annual maintenance plan, where one fee covers both service and breakdown visits.
