Midlands based Lorien Engineering Solutions has been appointed by Adams Foods Ltd to relocate its packing lines from Wincanton in Somerset to Leek Staffordshire.

The move, which is scheduled for completion in early 2013, will see all blended cheese production lines transferred to the firm’s head office in Leek where a brand new , purpose built blended cheese and innovation centre is being constructed.

The owner of brands Pilgrim’s Choice, Kerrygold and MU, Adams Foods is the UK’s leading supplier of pre-packed hard cheese and was the pioneer in launching convenience cheese (grated and sliced) to the UK retail market.

Lorien is responsible for the building design and project management, including the construction of a new production facility.

Lorien’s Phil Colquhoun said: “A fixed cost for this project was essential for the Board Approval and Lorien has worked hard with local suppliers of many disciplines to assemble this project within the budget assigned.”

Adams Foods was launched on 4 October 2010 following the merger between The Kerrygold Company and North Downs Dairy. Part of the Irish Dairy Board Group (IDB), the company provides  a range of hard cheese and butter products to the retail, wholesale and food service sectors.
