Merritts services were requested by a leading metalwork company to help with the decommissioning and relocation of metalwork machinery from their factory in the South West to their new location in the North.
Our engineer arranged a visit so that a feasibility study could be carried out and Merritts’ experienced and knowledgeable project management team executed detailed planning to ensure a work schedule that would be suitable for the customer to limit constraints on their production.
Great care was taken by our electrical and mechanical engineers to systematically decommission the machines. An intricate process of match marking was implemented as well as photographic images being taken to further assist rebuilding. All ancillary equipment was dismantled and secured to purpose built pallets which were then loaded onto Merritts’ transport.
All heavy items such as press brakes, bending rolls and hydraulic presses were uplifted from the premises using Versa-Lifts and a gantry crane. These were then skated to the designated loading area where all equipment was shrink wrapped and sheeted to ensure adequate protection. All equipment was then transported to the new site. As requested by the customer, all machinery was reassembled in the same layout as at previous factory and all services reconnected.
