We’ve recently completed one of our biggest and most challenging projects to date, a major upgrade of Muntons Plc’s Stowmarket maltings in Suffolk.
As principle contractor, we were tasked with the complete refurbishment of two germination box buildings alongside the installation of two new maltings beds, set in a two-phase operation to allow for minimal disruption to the Munton’s production schedule.
Extensive planning combined with Edwards’ highly skilled workforce not only secured the successful completion of the project but allowed it to be done in record time, typically less than half the time required for a job of this size and scale.
To ensure a good fit and to minimise on-site alterations, Edwards and Blyth & Blyth (the Consulting Engineers) created a bespoke panel design for Muntons. Using Edwards’ drawing office and extensive fabrication facilities in Perth, we manufactured each of the 54 panels required before transporting them to site on wide loads, ready to be installed.
The completion of this project will allow Muntons to continue to produce high quality malt from this facility for many years to come.
This long-term project with such specific requirements has highlighted Edwards’ position as a leading expert in the UK in streamlining engineering projects, from conception to fabrication, through to installation and completion.
Steve Miller, Production Director, Muntons Plc, said: “The completion of this project has been a major milestone for Muntons as part of our 5 year, £65m investment plan, allowing us to continue to produce a high-quality product in a new and improved environment. The work Edwards Engineering undertook was thorough and completed within our ambitious timeline and their attention to detail in the planning stages and fabrication stages meant we experienced minimal disruption on site.”Back to news
