The benefits of using steel wire tray cable
management in the food manufacturing sector were recognised this week when Cablofil
picked up a finalist award at the Food Processing Awards for an installation at Nestlé’s plant in York.
UK managing director of Cablofil
, Paul Courson (right), received the prestigious accolade from the editor of Food Processing magazine, David Strydom, in recognition of the essential role played by the Cablofil
system during the refurbishment of the confectionary production plant. Not only did the use of the Cablofil
steel wire tray system ensure a fast and trouble-free installation in a complex manufacturing environment but it also helped to deliver Nestlé’s strict hygiene standards.
Commented David Strydom: “Factory infrastructure such as the Cablofil
system is often an unsung hero in a food processing environment but we were impressed not only by the design and quality of the product itself but also by Cablofil
’s sector-specific understanding of the installation challenges and how they might be addressed.”
Installed by Connaught, the Nestlé project involved around 3km of Cablofil
steel wire tray in a wide variety of widths and depths. It was installed as suspended rows from a specially constructed steel frame, used as risers and installed on the equipment itself on both Aero and Kit Kat production lines.
Commented Paul Courson: “Cablofil
has considerable experience in the food processing industry and has become a preferred supplier to Nestlé, thanks to our expertise and the quality and flexibility of our system. We are delighted to have gained this recognition from the food processing sector and will continue to build on our food-related customer base.”
