Steel serves the food industry
More than 400t of structural steelwork has been supplied by Caunton Engineering for a new manufacturing facility in the Staffordshire town of Leek for Adam Food Ingredients (AFI).
The overall structural design of the triple span portal frame premises has been undertaken by Acies Group. The steelwork also includes mezzanine levels and an adjoining two storey office block.
AFI is investing millions of pounds in the new 5,500m² factory which will help the company increase its range of products and services.
Owned by the Irish Dairy Board, AFI produces a range of dairy ingredients such as cheese flavours, whey protein and lactose, and technical ingredients, such as texturisers, emulsifiers and stabilisers, for various food and drink categories.
