Lorien helps independent UK bakery extend its existing process and packaging plant

For the past two years, Cheshire-based family bakery Frank Roberts & Sons has been working with engineers at Lorien Engineering Solutions on a multi-million-pound automation project that will make its production more cost-efficient.

Compliance engineers at Lorien have been working with the bakery’s international equipment suppliers to extend its existing process and packaging plant.

Tony Reynolds, compliance manager at Lorien, worked with a bread slicing and bagging machinery supplier in Los Angeles, as well as an engineering company who deals in basket-conveying systems in Christchurch, New Zealand.

This involved assessing the machinery against European Harmonised Standards and then modifying the guarding and control systems, to ensure that the equipment would meet CE marking legislation.

Key benefits of service application

None of the suppliers had practical experience of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, as required for CE marking, making Lorien’s service essential.

Lorien prepared the documentation for Frank Roberts & Sons’ CE technical file, to ensure the machinery met all relevant EU legislation and was safe to use.

The company claims to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for ensuring safety and best practice during capital investment projects.

Lorien has been awarded five Order of Distinctions from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), recognising its commitment to workplace safety.
