Bradgate Bakery boasts steam generators

21 December 2011

Bradgate Bakery makes use of steam generators manufactured by Claytons Industries, at its impressive food plant based in Beaumont Leys in Leicester

Bradgate Bakery produces sandwiches, prepared salads and other chilled foods for Tesco and Ginsters. It opened in June 1993, with just eleven recipes, the bakery now employs 1,000 people and produces sandwiches around the clock.

''Continuous investment in skills and facilities has enabled the business to grow into one of the UK's largest sandwich manufacturers with an enviable reputation for quality, consistency and innovation in a fast-moving market,'' the company says.

Bradgate, a past winner of the Management Today's Best Factory Award, is also multiple winner of the BSA's Sandwich Manufacturer of the Year Award. During more than a decade of growth, Bradgate says it has always been able to maintain the highest standards in the industry.

The business prides itself on its strong and positive relationship with its staff - although it is Samworth Brothers' largest site, it has always maintained a friendly and family approach to doing business.

This was very much in evidence during a recent factory visit to the plant.

Clayton steam generators are used in a range of applications where demanding processes require a steam source that can meet those demands. It says its product range and ability to supply high quality saturated or superheated steam, on demand, at pressures up to 200 bar gauge, make us particularly well suited to the food industry.

The generators have been installed in the factory over the past 18 months.
