Factory Conversion for Fish Processing
Clegg Food Projects revisited a historic project with a new owner – Morrisons – in 2015. This included a converting a factory to make it suitable for the supermarkets fish processing goal.
Overview of the Morrisons’ factory conversion for fish processing
Clegg Food Projects was contracted by leading UK supermarket Morrisons to increase its fish and shellfish processing capacity at a Grimsby facility.
A factory conversion was required to ensure the space met Morrisons’ operational needs. The project involved major alterations and a refurbishment of the existing building including the removal and replacement of walls, floor slabs and hygienic finishes to create a new layout.
Throughout the project, Clegg Food Projects retained the role of principal contractor and coordinated the process installation.
The team therefore worked closely with Morrisons, particularly when the retailer required access to specific parts of the site before the factory was completed. Initially this was for storage and distribution but also eventually for selected production processes. This included the installation of washing and smoking equipment along with weighing and packing lines.
