Food-Safe Fit-Out Delivered for New Speciality Production Line in Devon
We are pleased to report that our dedicated food projects team have handed over their recent contract on site in Devon, following the successful completion of hygienic rooms for a specialist hemp products manufacturer.
In a new purpose-built unit on their existing site, the space will accommodate a new production line, where a food-safe fit-out was required to maintain the highest level of food manufacturing and safety standards required by the industry.
Stancold’s expert team worked with our client as the design and specification of the build evolved to suit the new machinery, establishing a trusted relationship based on our strong product knowledge and flexible approach. This also included several site meetings by our food projects specialist, Sam Taylor, and contracts manager, Sam Glover, where they consulted with the business’ owners and production team to ensure that they had a well-rounded view of the project’s requirements.
The work itself encompassed nearly 400m² of insulated food-safe panelling, utilising Kingspan’s Quadcore system, to form the room, which also included the installation of a double-hinged personnel door and roller shutter door.
This was another project that demonstrated our team’s adaptability when it comes to specialist manufacturing processes, which, in turn, has allowed us to undertake works in line with food & drink industry innovation over the last 75 years.
To discuss requirements for internal food-safe works within your business, please get in touch with Sam Taylor, on 07768 670 150 or send us an enquiry.
A partnership between Mr Adams and Mr Rowland, two metalworker friends back from the war. Over the years, they became one of the first companies in England making cork filled coldroom panels that were sandwiched between timber frames and vapor repellent faces infilled with rope fibres, bitumen and caulk to create a seal.
Name change to Stancold Coldstore Construction
Where the name originated from is a combination of urban legend and myth. Some say it was the idea of an installer called Stan, some say it was a “clever use” of the concept of 'Standing in the Cold'. However we got here, we are proud of our roots!
The Gillham family steps in
Mervyn Gillham came from a different field and saw the potential within Stancold to become a leading company in this specialist marketplace. In 1997, his son Kevin Gillham joins the team.
Stancold acquires Mercury Coldrooms
Stancold becomes one with the well reputed local coldstore business, Mercury Coldrooms, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a great team of people to the company. Today, the majority of the senior management team of Stancold and our top project managers are originally from Mercury.
As a result of rapid expansion, Stancold moves into a new 2600 m² building conveniently located just off the M4 motorway in Avonmouth. This exciting change has allowed us to consolidate all teams, knowledge and resource into one central hub, whilst being able to effectively cover the whole of the UK and beyond.
From father to son
Mervyn Gillham retires at a young age to a warm country with a cold beer. His son, Kevin Gillham, takes over as Managing Director and remains to this day.
Gilcrest Group is established with a separate manufacturing division to provide specialist composite panels to the broader market whilst supporting Stancold's continued development.
Stronger team and offering
Stancold strengthens its team and offering to the market by introducing innovative uses of insulated panels for other applications such as firewalls. Throughout the recession, Stancold remained profitable and retains all the key personnel who make the business what it is. A core of staff at this time have been in the same business for 20 years.
Demonstrating resilience amidst Brexit
uncertainty and a worldwide pandemic, Stancold preserves its strong financial status
and diversifies our offering further. Where we saw an increase in demand from clients
for more technically challenging projects, including cleanroom envelopes and
humidity-controlled facilities, a specialist team was formed within the business.
Stancold formally launches its dedicated Clean Room
Envelope Specialist Team, to reflect our current unique position within the
marketplace. The team continues to deliver envelope solutions of increased
complexity for more demanding applications, such as containment laboratories,
battery manufacturing facilities and nuclear establishments.
