Culina Group is a leading food and drinks logistics company offering warehousing and distribution solutions to numerous well-known food industry brands in the UK.
Culina identified additional business growth opportunities, including providing contract packing services for existing clients in the food and beverage industry. Partnering with a famous chocolate brand necessitated a brand new clean room facility for packing product in a controlled environment, separate from existing operations.
Spare warehouse space at Culinas existing distribution centre in Desborough was identified and ear-marked for the project. However, Culina acknowledged that they could not deliver this project effectively with their in-house resources, and required the support of a competent partner who had the experience and resources to deliver the project seamlessly without disrupting existing business operations
Culina needed a partner who they could trust, and Oakley were able to supply a clear project proposal, design package and detailed project timeline enabling the project to be on time and on budget from start to finish.
We took care of all aspects of the project for the client, including building a 1000sqft controlled environment clean room, as well as washroom, changing room and welfare facilities.
Culina could not justify the risk of this project negatively affecting core business operations, so Oakley’s end-to-end turn-key approach was perfect as it enabled the clients team to focus on their key day to day business activities confident in the knowledge the project was being effectively managed and coordinated to mitigate risks and reduce the possibility of unforeseen costs and delays to schedule.
Culina needed a high quality clean room to take their contract packing service to the next level. Now the project is complete we are delighted to hand over the space to our client and we’re confident it’s a facility they can be proud to show to their clients for years to come. The Culina team were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to supporting them with their future growth.
