Britvic drinks to production line progress
Soft drinks giant Britvic is installing new state-of-the-art production lines at its UK manufacturing sites in Leeds and Rugby.
Headquartered in the UK, Britvic operates in or exports to over 50 countries, selling 2.3 billion litres of drinks globally every year. Britvic’s Leeds and Rugby factories have been developed to provide new PET bottling facilities, with new bottling lines introduced at both sites.
These upgrades have been designed to optimise operational efficiencies and help the company to minimise the impact of its operations on the environment in line with its sustainable business programme.
“This project demonstrates Britvic’s commitment to providing the latest technology to optimise operations and reduce the impact on the planet,” says Adam Hartley, engineering and plant development manager at Britvic. “Working collaboratively with our suppliers and the supporting project team has been crucial to maximising the potential of the sites, and setting them up for success in the long term.”
Chris Bullock, engineering manager at Lorien Engineering Solutions, which is working with Britvic on the installation, adds: “The cooperation of factory staff at all levels has been appreciated as we assist in future-proofing their site operations over the course of these projects.”
