Installation of Chilled Soft Fruit Storage in Somerset

With a strong 72-year history, we’re very proud of our heritage in the South West and the assistance we’ve been able to provide to many local businesses over the years, as they’ve grown from strength to strength. Next month will be no exception, as Stancold take the short trip down the road to Bridgwater to visit an existing customer.

After the successful fit-out of their production facility by Stancold around 4 years ago, our client, a family-run business specialising in the sale of soft fruits, now requires an extension to their storage facilities.

Due to an increase in demand from a major supermarket client, Stancold will install a new chill store on site in preparation for the upcoming picking season to begin in April. This facility will be externally facing with two external walls, where the colour will be matched to suit the aesthetics of the existing building. Stancold will also be working alongside loading bay specialists, sara LBS, as they install two dock levellers for efficient loading access.

The cold storage facility is to be made up of Kingspan Quadcore panels, 125mm and 100mm in thickness, which are ideal for food-safe environments of this nature. One sliding and one hinged chiller door will also be installed by the Stancold team.

We’re looking forward to seeing the progress of this week-long installation and any further plans for expansion later on in 2019.

To prepare your business for your peak season and to find out more about expanding your temperature-controlled facilities to suit, our specialist, Sam Taylor, will be more than happy to discuss how we can help on 07768 670 150 or via an enquiry here.
