Foodservice equipment manufacturer Glendon Products has moved to an expanded production facility, complete with a specialist compressed air distribution pipework system
The Northampton-based company designs and manufactures heated and refrigerated equipment for the catering industry, including counters, coldstores and delicatessen displays.
Due to the rapid growth of the company, the factory needed to relocate to larger premises, so it completed the construction of a new manufacturing facility to increase productivity.
An Air-Line Xtra pipework system supplied by Durapipe UK was specified to convey compressed air from the ring main system to the pneumatic machinery within the new factory.
Maintaining clean, uncontaminated air is crucial to the successful operation of the factory, as a machine failure due to dirty air could prove costly for Glendon Products in unexpected downtime.
Brian Leach, director of Glendon Products, said: “We specified Air-Line Xtra due to the ease of installation it provides and because we didn’t need to employ a specialist contractor, it not only offered a cost effective option but also flexibility for future expansions.
“Most importantly, Air-Line Xtra ensures that the compressed air is kept clean and uncontaminated which is paramount for Glendon Products.”
