We do this at the buying and specification stages, talking with suppliers and OEMs, and all the way through to the reuse and repurposing of complex machinery and integrated lines. This is underpinned by our experience of helping develop industry standards, and our experts being regularly engaged in UK and international contractual and performance arbitrations and other legal proceedings.
We have a deep understanding and pragmatic experience of the safety and reliability challenges in food processing and packaging: from potentially explosive atmospheres and pressure systems to functional safety and automation and occupational hygiene, ergonomics and workplace transport (WPT).
We can help you review designs, write specifications, validate safety systems (SIL & PL), manage and engage in factory and site acceptance tests (FAT & SAT)/pre-delivery inspection (PDI), review the layout of plant, equipment and transport systems, or even develop safe operating procedures and training.
We have particular expertise in helping research and development teams build and scale pilot plants and processes, from proof of concept through to full production: sitting on the design team as their critical friend. We have a proven track record of success over many decades, and we can help you achieve your goals and margins.
