Lorien Engineering Solutions, a division of GP Strategies, is working with soft drinks provider Britvic to help install new state-of-the-art production lines at Britvic’s Leeds and Rugby manufacturing sites. Lorien Engineering Solutions is part of a multi-disciplined project team, created and led by Britvic, to deliver a step-change in business capability. Alongside other specialists, Lorien is supporting Britvic with project management, compliance, and design resources at all stages of the development.

Britvic is the largest supplier of branded still soft drinks in Great Britain (GB) and the number two supplier of branded carbonated soft drinks in GB. Headquartered in the UK, Britvic operates in or exports to over 50 countries, selling 2.3 billion litres of Britvic drinks globally every year. Britvic’s Leeds and Rugby factories have been developed to provide new PET bottling facilities, with new bottling lines introduced at both sites.

These upgrades have been designed to optimise operational efficiencies and help the company to minimise the impact of its operations on the environment in line with its sustainable business programme, ‘A Healthier Everyday’. The programme puts healthier people, healthier communities, and a healthier planet at the heart of its business.

Adam Hartley, Engineering and Plant Development Manager leading the installation group for Britvic, comments: “The project demonstrates Britvic’s commitment to providing the latest technology to optimise operations and reduce the impact on the planet. Working collaboratively with our suppliers and the supporting project team has been crucial to maximising the potential of the sites and setting them up for success in the long term.”

Chris Bullock, Engineering Manager at Lorien, adds: “The co-operation of factory staff at all levels has been appreciated as we assist in future-proofing their site operations over the course of these projects. We are delighted to support Britvic as it continues to grow.”
