Following the successful line move from Chelmsford to Leeds, leading soft drinks company Britvic selected Colwall Conveyor Systems Ltd (CCS) to solve a logistical and handling problem at its expanding Swinnow Lane factory.

In order to create an enclosed area to incorporate a new high-speed filling line, Britvic required an existing production line to be re-planned and moved in order to create a 2m forklift truck access between the equipment and a new partitioning wall. This would provide free flow, enabling trucks to deliver packaging materials to this existing Line 1.

Headed up by Directors Steve Dudley and Trevor Harris, Colwall Conveyor Systems (CCS) has come to the forefront after the long established Walsall Engineering Group consolidated its various operating divisions and pooled the resources under this one banner.

Steve Dudley reported, “CCS has maintained key experienced personnel and engineering resources that has established the business as a respected supplier of total solutions, providing comprehensive engineering support services to both O.E.M.’s and manufacturers across many sectors of industry both in the UK and overseas.

We have designed bespoke engineered solutions to meet individual customer needs, manufacturing, fabricating and assembling equipment. Colwall Conveyor Systems manufactures and installs a wide range of conveyor solutions to meet customer’s individual requirements. From single or multiple conveyors for integration into existing machinery lines, through to complete fully automated conveying systems including controls and software.”

Team work is the key to success.

As well as creating space for an access aisle, several conveyors had to be installed and modifications to the plant was necessary in order to complete the project. This included the relocation of a spiral conveyor, manufacturing and installing new access stairs and gantry platforms. This whole project was redesigned in-house in conjuncture with the Britvic project team and close communication was essential throughout, as all the work had to be completed prior to the installation of the new filling line. The install process went smoothly and Britvic are very satisfied with the end results.
