Triple Decker From UPM Conveyors

UPM Conveyors has established preferred supplier status to Finlay’s Fresh Produce, the first suppliers of Fairtrade vegetables into the UK. Roger Broughton, group engineering manager, says: “UPM were selected due to their ability to offer bespoke solutions to product handling in Kenya where trouble free operation and zero maintenance are priorities.”

UPM was able to offer a solution to Finlay’s application based on a triple decker belt conveyor to allow four operators per side to transfer product from the lower conveyor to fill boxes on the middle conveyor with empty boxes being transferred on the top roller conveyor at a rate of 2,000 kilos per hour.

Finlay’s, established in 1750, has a substantial horticultural business which is involved in the growing, processing, packaging, marketing and distribution of cut flowers and premium prepared fresh produce, supplying several leading UK retailers. The company has major farming interests in Kenya, South Africa and China and is the largest vertically integrated added value horticultural producer and exporter of fresh produce and flowers from Africa to the EU. Finlay’s produced over 165 million packs of vegetables for the UK retail market in 2010 amounting to 29 million kilos of the freshest vegetables.

The UPM philosophy is simple and based on working in partnership with people, sharing their knowledge and experience gained over 37 years, with UPM accepting total responsibility for turn key projects operating to the agreed specification and to the customer’s satisfaction which is the result of a Performance Guarantee allowing peace of mind.
