Coca-Cola wins Brammer award for sustainable manufacturing

04 January 2012

UK-based beverage sales and customer service company Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has scooped a prestigious award at Brammer’s 2011 Manufacturing Forum and Awards Lunch

The UK’s leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services presented CCE with the award for sustainable manufacturing.

The 2011 Manufacturing Forum and Awards Lunch was held at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, aiming to celebrate the very best in innovation and new technology developments within the UK manufacturing marketplace.

The sustainable manufacturing award focuses on manufacturing processes that are environmentally, economically and socially sound, with Brammer working with customers to identify inefficiencies in processes and suggest improvements that reduce the amount of energy consumed.

At CCE’s Sidcup facility, Brammer identified an opportunity for CCE to further improve energy efficiency by improving the controllability of air handling unit fans that were running constantly. By fitting inverter drives to 40 motors, allowing greater control and reduced motor speed, CCE has been able to save 392 tonnes of CO2 per annum, with a 16 month return on investment. This, along with many other cost-saving ideas from Brammer, has been shared with the other Coca-Cola sites across Europe where Brammer operates Insite facilities.

Ian Ritchie, Managing Director of Brammer UK, said: “This award recognises a company which has delivered great results when it comes to sustainable manufacturing in 2011. The decision to fit inverter drives to 40 motors has seen CCE make remarkable savings, further contributing to its prowess in the area of energy efficiency.”

The sustainable manufacturing award was presented to Nigel Stewart, Category Manager of Capital Equipment and MRO at Coca-Cola Enterprises.
