D Wise Ltd, The Need for Expansion

Erection of a Steel Frame Extension

D Wise Ltd is a family run business with a long history in the poultry industry, to date spanning over 3 generations. In 1989 they diversified into the egg product market and in 1996 they located into a new, purpose built EU approved factory. Due to a greater demand for pasteurised egg products they were able to expand their multi-skilled workforce and in turn extend their product range to manufacture blended egg products for customers specifications. They now supply to major supermarket chains.

Business Objectives

Due to even more demand over recent years they required more workspace to house their new automated equipment processing scrambled eggs. Mark Wise states “This will give the business scope to increase productivity, increase sales and turnover.” MDownes Earthworks Ltd secured the contract to build the Steel frame structure off the existing building “they were competitively priced, but the main decision was made due to recommendations from colleagues who had also used them”. Mark Wise.

Scrambling problems and whisking solutions!

During the 10 weeks it took to build – the weather was extremely kind and the groundworks were completed in a few days. Once the weather worsened, they were ready to commence inside. A few drainage issues arose along the way, Mark states “MDownes were able to recommended sensible drainage solutions and solved some underlying issues immediately”. There was always a project manager available to oversee the work, communication was excellent”.

“I would highly recommend MDownes, the build was completed on time and the results are exactly what I expected”. Mark Wise

The new food processing shed will be fully functioning with its new equipment by the end of the year. We look forward to revisiting!
