New plant leads to new business for catering butcher

02 March 2011

ProjectLink, part of the Gilcrest Group, has completed the design and build of a meat processing plant for Leach & Sons at its new site in Newton Abbot, Devon

The 500 sq metre facility will allow Leach & Sons – a catering butcher supplying establishments across the South West – to double its business within the next five years. The new premises include a 60 sq metre chiller, 60 sq metre freeze and a 150 sq metre production area incorporating a poultry and processed meat preparation room.

Allan Leach of Leach & Sons said: “ProjectLink was the perfect partner to work with us on the design and build of our new plant. Their extensive experience and high level of service helped deliver the project on time, on budget and to our exact requirements. We are looking forward to working with them again when the opportunity arises.”

The new premises allow Leach & Sons to optimise its production process and meet Food Standard Authority requirements and the company is already winning new business as a result of the quality of the production facility.

ProjectLink, which is based at Avonmouth, near Bristol, specialises in handling design and build projects for food industry clients throughout the UK. Managing director Darren Williams said: “We were pleased to be chosen to partner Leach & Sons on this project. Our expertise in the food construction industry, along with the client’s well defined brief, allowed the contract to be completed successfully.”
