We’re delighted to complete a challenging £1.5m project with long-standing customer Harley Seeds.

Edwards was tasked with two separate projects on the same site relating to two plants. The main brief identified that the equipment had to be as user friendly as possible for the operators and designed to have specific access points to aid in the clean-out process between crop varieties.

The first project was a state-of-the-art seed plant for oats, with a timeframe of 12 months, inclusive of the design process.

The second was an upgrade of the bagging plant, with work required to be completed within six months, also factoring in design within that timeframe. Older parts were to be repurposed and integrated alongside the new.

The experience of working on similar projects for the client combined with Edwards’ highly skilled workforce secured the completion of the project within the tight timeframe and to the satisfaction of the client, even given the added complications that COVID-19 brought.

The completion of this project will allow Harleys a quicker turnaround between oat varieties/species, reducing the chances of cross-contamination and protecting their reputation.

This project builds on Edwards’ ability to work on such projects, positioning them as a leading expert in completing projects of this scale, even amid a global pandemic.
