Pecan Deluxe will be celebrating the multi-million pound expansion of the newly upgraded manufacturing facilities, with a grand opening launch party set for 29th November.
Big Money Makeover
During the last 12 months, our factory site has undergone a £3 million pound expansion including warehouses, logistics and manufacturing areas. We have also installed a brand new cold extrusion line to help meet the increasingly high demand for one of our most popular products, cookie dough.
Increasing Efficiency and Production
The expansion will see improved access between various production and storage units, which means an increase in efficiency due to a reduction of stock movements. A series of new equipment has also been installed to increase production capabilities in chocolate moulding and bakery lines.
Recognising increasing demand for the company’s wide selection of ingredients, the investment also includes the installation of loading canopies and the addition of new onsite frozen storage units – powered by a new, dedicated substation. Employees have been benefiting from the updated and extended working environment.
The official celebration of these impressive enhancements will be at a special launch event which will feature live product demonstrations, tours of the upgraded and extended factory, and an exclusive in-depth presentation on the latest food and beverage trends influencing the industry today and in the future. Pecan Deluxe will also unveil an innovative new project that the company has been developing and which has so far been kept a closely guarded secret.
EMEA and APAC Managing Director, Graham Kingston, will officially kick off proceedings on the day. Graham explained: “Pecan Deluxe Candy Europe already has an outstanding reputation in the industry for producing innovative inclusions that really work on an industrial scale, across almost any application with the food and beverage sectors. Still, we’re never content to rest on our laurels and this massive investment will enable us to meet demand even more effectively and efficiently going forward – most notably with the addition of the new cold extrusion line to ensure our hundreds of well-known food manufacturer customers across Europe continue to receive timely deliveries of our delicious and versatile cookie doughs.
“It’s fascinating to see how not a minute has been wasted: as soon as one extension or enhancement was in place, it was immediately in demand to help meet orders and support R&D projects from both existing and new customers. I’m confident that Pecan Deluxe Europe will only continue to grow and this expansion will further cement our reputation as market leader across Europe.”
