Industrial - Food Preservation Case Study


Focus on high quality manufacture


Background 

Specialists in controlled atmosphere and cold store food storage and preservation products and services sold throughout Europe.

Customer Brief  

Several years ago our customer required a supplier to support development of a food storage and preservation product range capable of supporting design and prototyping, then capable of large volume manufacture at a consistent high quality.  The high quality of manufacture is critical due to the nature of the end use as a system for preserving warehouses of fruit and vegetables destined for various domestic and foreign markets.  


CEL Solution
We worked closely with our customer on design, prototype and modifications, including material changes and testing.  Specifically, this included testing different materials for the liquid storage tank and adjusting the manufacture for different electronic and convection components.  We now regularly produce the products in batches of more than 100 units, as well as a full complement of spares and related parts.
Materials used

Aluminium, mild steel and stainless steel; various powder coated finishes.
