Case Study 1
“The client is a manufacturer of silicone base ingredients for use in cosmetics and industrial applications, but its headquarters are not based in the UK and its UK plant is not conducive to the manufacture of highly flammable materials.”
Case Study 2
“An existing client wanted to upgrade one of their UK based facilities that provided chemicals in bulk for the food and brewing sectors, but needed to continue servicing their clients while the engineering work was underway.”
Case Study 3
“During Tube Store retrieval operations at it’s site, the client became aware of accumulations of contaminated water residing in some of the tubes. This was a complex and programme critical project that required an innovative solution.”
Case Study 4
“Following a factory fire, the original client needed a new manufacturing plant – and fast – for the manufacture of domestic / retail wood treatment products. This emergency response was a complex project due to the low flashpoint of the products and the need to produce a retail-quality product.”
Case Study 5
“The client prints designs on t-shirts and uses a liquid conditioner to cure inks within the printing process. The original supplier of the conditioner (and manufacturer of the equipment) was overseas and the local agent ceased supply to the UK, resulting in a cost and continuity issue, so the brief from the client was to develop an alternative liquid”
Case Study 6
“As a manufacturer of printing inks, the client handles a number of solvents on site to clean the equipment between products and needs to ensure that there is no contamination. It then must manage this waste product in the most environmentally-friendly manner.”
