Wingland Foods expands as Chalcroft extends facility

10 March 2011

Chalcroft Construction, specialist in new-build and refurbishment projects in the food sector, has started work on the third phase of a project that will complete the expansion of a food production facility

Bakkavör-owned Wingland Foods, in Sutton Bridge, Lincolnshire, first called in Chalcroft in 2005 when it embarked on an expansion programme aimed at increasing production of deli style salad items for a well-known high street premium supermarket.

The latest project sees Chalcroft working on a high-care facility, complete with insulated white walls, kerbs and resin floor. It also sees alterations to a blast freezer, upgrades to existing plant and the installation of an innovative air-handling system.

Edward Getley, who heads up Chalcroft’s Food Projects Division, commented: “A growth in demand for its products has seen Wingland Foods embark on an expansion programme that will mean it can continue to fulfil its potential.

“The work we are currently carrying out at Wingland utilises every aspect of our knowledge and experience in this sector, particularly with the construction of a high-care facility that is adjacent to an existing production area.”

Special pods have been created around the doors that will eventually lead into the extension, with work scheduled to be complete in early May.

Jonathan Fowler, from Wingland Foods, commented: “We’ve been pleased with the attention to detail, flexibility and partnership ethos demonstrated by the Chalcroft team on the project here at Wingland Foods.

“This project has been a case study in planning and logistics to ensure that there have been no interruptions to production and to make sure that when the extension opens, it fits seamlessly into use.”

Chalcroft has worked with the Bakkavör group of companies for a number of years, with one of its most recent projects being an extension to the premises of Bakkavör-owned Isleport Foods, in Highbridge, Somerset.
