Conveyor System Case Study
Flexible Dynamic Weighing Conveyor System

This client needed to transport potato products from an existing line to a new food transfer pump, with varying infeed points, product type and product flow.

We designed, supplied and installed a 4-conveyor system with lockable castors and cantilever design, including a release tail roller and independent middle frame. This allowed total flexibility of configuration depending on product flow. 

The result was a conveyor system capable of transporting between 200 – 600 kg of potatoes per hour, all weighed, monitored and logged.

Large in-house engineering team.

Our large in-house engineering team covers mechanical, civil, structural, process, automation and electrical engineering.  This means we can draw on a range of expertise at every stage of the project. 

Our team members are visible at all times, with extensive experience operating as both CDM Principal Designer and/or Contractor.  We work consistently in the following sectors.

  • Baking & Bread
  • Seafood
  • Meat & Poultry
  • Ready Meals & Freshly Prepared
  • Agriculture & Cereal
  • Confectionery & Snacks
  • Ingredients & Flavours


Our independence from any one supplier means we always work objectively for procurement and sub-contractor management.  We have the experience to know when to step in if a challenge arises, using a reliable network of tested suppliers.

We liaise with all required authorities and bodies from installation through to commissioning.  We are your partner, not just your contractor.

Over 15 years of factory design and installation.

Our experience in food processing plant design spans more than 15 years of factory builds, equipment installs and production line extensions.  From conveyors to packing machines to coolers and chillers, we work with both large and small clients in hygienic design, high-care and low-care environments.

We don’t just manage the project, we own it.

We make it our job to understand precisely which challenge the client is facing.

Comprehensive feasibility studies, concept design and FEED stages give reliability to projections for project plans and KPIs.   This vertical start-up approach produces well-defined User Requirement Specifications (URS). 

A project with FEG involves every stage being handled by us, owning each problem before, during and after project delivery. 

Trust is what drives our relationships with clients. It is our responsibility to build that trust through reliable work to a standard of excellence. Consistently delivering on commitments to time, cost and quality is the right way to develop a client relationship.”

Case Study:  2 Sisters
Food factory extension generates 20% increase in production output

Our client’s business was growing and they required de-bottlenecking and increased chilled and frozen storage capacity. Key to success was that production was not interrupted.

We acted as Principal Designer and Principal Contractor, undertaking every stage from feasibility to installation of chilled storage, blast freezing, hygienic flooring and drainage, changing rooms, and main production hall.

 A 20% increase in production output was achieved as a result of the project.
