Wrights Pies of Crewe are in the process of a £4million expansion program which has just seen the completion of the refurbishment of the Ready Meals production area, part of the £20million Crewe complex that produces 5million savoury products every month.

The company has been baking pies, savoury products, quality ready meals for the South Cheshire and Potteries communities for nearly 90 years and distributes these products through 17 local shops with exports to 26 countries.

Whenever a floor needs upgrading or repairing Kemtile have been Wrights first choice of principal contractor, having worked for the company for a number of years on several projects.

Peter Wright Managing Director of Wrights Pies commented “Kemtile have become our preferred installation partner for composite tile flooring throughout our business expansion program over the years. They have demonstrated a more than professional approach to the installation, giving us the best value for money and service whilst providing attention to detail and more importantly achieving a personal level of 100% customer satisfaction in our case.”

The project included two areas, a first floor, where a reinforcing membrane was installed to seal the floor and a ground floor area. Argelith hexagonal tiles were chosen for their high impact and slip resistance. The tiles are easy to steam clean,  resistant to chemicals and have an extremely low water absorption of  less than 0.05%. The neutral colour gives the factory a light and clean appearance.

The tiles were installed using the Kagetec BS sonic vibration system which embeds the tiles in a bonding layer. This system ensures each tile is securely laid to create an hygienic floor that’s easy to clean and eliminates bacterial growth. An epoxy grout was used in the 2mm joints. On the ground floor reinforced expansion joints were installed in heavy traffic areas to eliminate cracking.

Kemtile are the UK’s leading hygienic floor installation company for the food, pharmaceutical, beverage and drinks industry, laying both resin concrete and tiled floors. For more information visit their web site www.kemtile.co.uk
