Chicken Processing Facility

A Two Phase Project Provides One Perfect Solution


From humble beginnings, the founder of this business first started processing a few chickens in a shed, and is now one of the largest and well-respected operators in the UK poultry sector. The UK -based company breeds and processes chicken for the food service, manufacturing, wholesale and grocery markets. Customers include Iceland, Booker Group and Nisa.

The Challenge

Year-on-year sustained growth and the operational pressures of fulfilling a number of new client orders meant that their Chief Engineer needed to review the business’ existing production and storage facilities in order to be able to accommodate the extra production demands.

The Solution

AHR was contacted and promptly attended a site survey to provide advice and technical support on how best to solve the potential supply and storage problems.

Having carried out a full site survey, the specialist team at AHR concluded the most cost-effective solution for the client would be to demolish an existing outbuilding to make way for two new portable cold stores.

Once demolition had taken place and the site re-approved, the first 50-foot, 3 pallets wide refrigeration unit was installed. This needed to be appointed during the busy plants downtime - so as not to disrupt production and customer transport arrangements.

The second phase of the project saw the installation of a 40-foot unit with an extended capacity capable of storing 31 pallets. The unit required craning into position between two existing buildings, and connected to the first 50-foot unit via a secure link way assembly.

This challenging installation was executed without complication and on-time and importantly to the client, without any disruption to the daily operations of the business.
