Glenrath Farms is one of the UK’s largest egg producers, supplying eggs to all major retailers and supermarkets throughout the country. ACE Refrigeration secured the deal with Glenrath Farms when they wanted to extend their production facility at West Linton, where they produce and pack more than a million eggs each day. Glenrath Farms is run by the Campbell family who have farmed the Tweeddale Hills in the Scottish Borders for three generations, with the business growing from producing and selling eggs door to door to supplying eggs to supermarkets throughout the UK.
Our bespoke design focusing on state of the art equipment with complete energy efficiency was key to winning the contract for the refrigeration element of this expansion. Established more than 60 years’ ago, the
refrigeration and cold room specialists at ACE also replaced the cooling in their existing packing station as well as replacing the R22 air conditioning system in the grading area at Glenrath Farms, a vital part of the process as Glenrath offer Fresh, Barn, Free Range and Organic eggs.
Less than a year later and we were back on site for another project. This time we were tasked with the installation of two systems inside a new Chill Room within Glenrath’s new liquid egg facility, as well as replacing equipment in a small Chill Room in the main factory. As an additional element ACE Refrigeration also assisted Sanovo, who manufactured and supplied the liquid egg process machinery, with the ice bank.
ACE Refrigeration is manufacturer independent and able to offer customers solutions which best meet their needs; and with energy costs on the rise, this is the ideal time to take action. As well as complying with the legal requirements of ever-changing legislation, replacing tired and inefficient equipment can have a major benefit on your bottom line – some of our recent installations have had a payback period of less than 2 years based on the energy savings received; some customers have saved up to 25% off their energy bills.
