This exciting project was carried out for Cranswick’s brand new, purpose built factory in Hull. Since it’s launch, the facility has achieved a AA grade BRCGS accreditation. The factory is responsible for the production of some of Cranswick’s best prepared poultry offerings, including kievs, goujons and steaks. They required hygienic, food-safe doorways that could be relied on now, and in future.
For a prestigious company offering the very best in ‘Great British Taste’, Cranswick’s growth strategy involves developing new product offerings. As the volume of product lines and demand increases, additional production capacity is required. In 2022, the company began building a brand new, purpose built facility and needed a trusted doorway partner to provide a turkey solution that they could rely on for the lifetime of the factory. Tekta was appointed to manage the design, specification, installation and maintenance of all the doorways across the new factory.
Tekta’s solution comprised an extensive mix of products including, the Rapidor Food high speed door for frequently used doorways in food production areas, Traffidor Swing crash doors, Thermidor Freeze and Thermidor Chill for ensuring maintenance of correct storage temperatures for Cranswick’s raw materials and finished goods. Finally, the Traffidor Pass was utilised extensively throughout the building for personnel traffic.
Working over the course of several weeks, the Tekta installation teams were able to fully install and sign off the complete doorway solution, ready for factory handover. With the factory now fully functional, the doorways are withstanding continual daily use and performing well in the rigorous food factory environment.
