JWCI works on world’s largest fresh milk Dairy

Global Dairy Company Arla Foods is renowned for its craftsmanship and commitment to the environment. Its new £150m dairy facility is no exception to this rule and Staffordshire based Process Engineers JWCI were on site to help. 

The new super dairy at Aylesbury, commissioned to provide a strategic base to service customers in and around London, has the capacity to process up to one billion litres of fresh milk and will be zero carbon, ensuring its environmentally sound credentials. 

Arla Foods brands include Anchor, Lurpak, Cravendale, Apetina and Tickler and is the UK’s number one provider of butter and spreads with a £2 billion turnover.

The contract for the chemical distribution at the new 70 acre Aylesbury site was awarded to Ecolab GMBH. JWCI have worked with Ecolab UK for many years but had previously only worked on smaller scale projects for the German company. JWCI invited the project leaders from Ecolab GMBH to their offices in 2012 so they could meet the team and see how JWCI’s experience and skills could benefit the project.

Kerry Callear, Company Director said;
“It was important for us to prove our level of competence aswell as our ability to meet all timescales and manage efficiently. We knew we had the capability so we just wanted to show that to Ecolab GMBH from the outset.”

Having worked in the food industry for many years JWCI have built up an enviable reputation for their high standards of professionalism so the relationship with Ecolab GMBH and the Arla project developed from there. 

JWCI were first on site for Ecolab in January 2013 to organise the early stages of the project and by February were designated to undertake the whole mechanical installation within the chemical room and service corridors to provide connection points to two other firms joining the site the following month. The team consisting of JWCI, a second British firm and a company from Germany worked alongside each other to then complete all chemical distribution plant and pipework throughout the factory. JWCI were last to leave site having completed all services during commissioning in November 2013.

Work undertaken included positioning tanks, installing brackets and all pipework, fabricating and installing walkways, gantry and staircases. JWCI also supplied the majority of pipe and fittings for use on the site by the three teams.

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.
