Pork pie facility refurbishment completed
Lorien Engineering Solutions has completed a major refurbishment for British pork pie brand Addo Food Group.
Addo Food Group enlisted the help of Lorien to augment manufacturing facilities at its Tottle Bakery in Nottingham, UK. According to the company, Tottle Bakery facility makes and distributes over 40 million pork pies each year.
Lorien was appointed as designer and project manager for the 12-month, multi-million pound project, which has seen manufacturing areas further enhanced to meet the large-scale needs of a major UK multiple. The works were completed with zero production downtime.
Phil Colquhoun, senior project manager at Lorien Engineering Solutions, says, “We are delighted to work closely with the technical team at Addo Food Group in bringing a major project such as this to completion on time, within budget, and with no production downtime.”
Tony Ombler, general manager of the Tottle Bakery, adds, “From the outset it was clear that Lorien is accustomed to integrating seamlessly with in-house teams and project managing the entire process from start to finish.
“It took the pressure off our internal resources and allowed our focus to remain entirely on production. This was a demanding project and the team at Lorien rose to the challenge.”
