Our team was contacted by this leading food processor to support a multi-million dollar upgrade to a client’s existing pizza line. To reduce packaging materials and improve cost savings, our client converted their traditionally-shaped round pizzas into a square shape. We helped support the installation of all new packaging equipment and engineered three separate lines with a multiple installation approach.
- Close coordination and troubleshooting:POWER’s team worked closely with our client to identify and remedy potential conveyance and packaging challenges inherent to an entirely new system.
- Minimized impact on existing operations:Our team tailored its designs to enable continuous production throughout the client’s facility while the project was underway.
- Reconfiguration of existing space:In order to accommodate this new processing and packaging area, the project scope included demolition of existing plant offices. The offices were then re-built in a new area of the plant.
- Shutdown sequencing and temporary lines minimized production impact:This project impacted the lines that served as a single source of the client’s product to the market. Three entire lines were changed over and much of the packaging equipment replaced. To minimize the impact of this down-time, our team sequenced shutdowns and set up temporary lines in a nearby space while demolition and installation of the new lines were underway.
