Walsall Engineering played a part in a multi-million pound investment by drinks giant Diageo to relocate kit from its Kilmarnock facility to its Leven site

Controlrite, a subsidiary of Walsall Engineering, was awarded the main contract to re-install several packaging lines in the new Bottling Hall 3 at Leven. The Leven development and was completed over a phased basis throughout 2012. This involved the transfer of over 1000 SKU’s and 46 brands.

According to Walsall Engineering, the initial phases of the contracts were to relocate and re-engineer the production layouts to suit the new large bottling hall, which is 2.5 times the size of the Murrayfield rugby pitch.

Walsall Engineering took responsibility for the mechanical side of the contract and project managed the whole transfer process for the group. New bottle conveyors were needed to integrate sections of the new line configurations and were designed and manufactured by the fabrication division of Walsall Engineering.

As part of the overall contract, the company also co-ordinated and managed service engineers from all of the main machinery suppliers whose equipment was being relocated.

Controlrite undertook all of the electrical works through Frederick Smith Electrical, its electrical installation division.
