South Caernarfon Creameries New Production Unit Installation
WM Dyer were recently involved in the Electrical Installations of a New Build Facility at South Caernarfon Creameries, Wales – working in partnership with OBR Construction. The New Build state of the art, flexible Cheese production facility has an impressive investment backing of £6 million.
Over the next five years, the modern facility enables the farmers’ co-operative to almost double production capability, increasing cheese production from the current level of 9,000 tonnes per annum to 17,000 tonnes.
South Caernarfon Creameries first started operating at the site near Pwllheli in 1937. Their objective for this project was to keep production levels high and to not allow such works to affect their business.
The company recruited some Welsh member farmers in preparation for the new unit. It was vital that the project was kept to time scale – William Dyer had to ensure their works were fully completed within good time to prevent any effect to other services that needed to be installed.
The new production unit will be best in its class, efficient and flexible and will support South Caernarfon Creameries’ growth strategy with both existing and new customers as well as exports. The standard of all Electrical Installations within this unit had to be in line with this standard. Energy efficiency was also key, as an expert in this field, WM Dyer were able to bring their expertise into the project and facilitate this knowledge throughout the design and installations that took place.
Alan Wyn Jones, Managing Director said
“Although it’s currently a very challenging period for milk producers and processors, this is a very exciting period for our business. Our investment will result in the first new cheese factory build in the UK since the 1970’s and will provide us with best in class production facilities that will further support our growth and added value strategy.”
