MRO supplier recognises improved production efficiency

Global snacks powerhouse Kraft Foods has won the prestigious sustainable manufacturing award at the 2012 Manufacturing Forum and Awards hosted by Brammer, the UK’s leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services.

The event, now in its sixth year, had the theme of ‘Keeping Britain Manufacturing’ and recognised the importance of innovation, new technology and the need for continuous improvement in delivering improved performance within the UK manufacturing sector. The sustainable manufacturing award is presented annually to a company that has improved its manufacturing operations in a way which reduces energy consumption reduces energy consumption and emissions working in partnership with Brammer.

At the Cadbury plant in Bournville, Brammer worked with Kraft Foods to redesign and specify Air Handling Units (AHUs) equipment to improve energy efficiency on the Crème Egg production line. As part of the project, fixed speed AHUs were found to be very inefficient and were therefore refurbished with new inverter panels, motors and drive belts to reduce the speed of each fan without compromising the quality of air delivered to the production facility, in order to increase efficiency. Current estimates show an annual saving of around 763,000 kWh of energy per year.

Ian Ritchie, Managing Director of Brammer UK, commented: “Every year we’re delighted to see an increase in the quantity and quality of nominations for this category, proving that environmental sustainability plays an ever more important role in improving company performance. The work done by

Kraft Foods has resulted in impressive emission reductions and cost savings for the iconic brand.”

Kraft Foods’ Tim Bonham attended the event to collect the award.
