The St Astier Blog – all the latest news on our specialist repair schemes and related activities brought to you with a hefty dose of insight into the inner workings of our humble company.
Industrial Flooring Works
A 10,000sqm storage area at Refresco's Belmont Estate site is being transformed in line with exacting, food hygiene standards and includes the installation of the company's first aseptic, PET production line in the UK. The new facilities will give Refesco – one of Europe's biggest suppliers of own-brand soft drinks and beverages with a turnover of £1.25bn – a boost in production capacity at the plant of up to 10%.
St Astier won the contract because of our experience in working under tight schedules and under demanding conditions – the factory runs 24 hours a day, 6 or 7 days a week and production continues throughout the refurbishment work.
The scheme which is due to be completed soon, involves the removal of dividing walls, the installation of a new floor drainage channel systems and hygienic floor coatings, conversion of offices, laboratory and conference facilities and the upgrading of wall cladding panels to food industry standard.
