Factory relocation services
Merritts can carry out factory removal and factory closure projects throughout the UK and Europe as well as in most countries worldwide. We are able to overcome complex machinery dismantling and technical lifting challenges. This is due to the depth of experience of our personnel, the versatile heavy machinery lifting options we can provide, and a programme of continuous investment in our fleet of transport vehicles and lifting equipment.
Our business was founded in 1922, and as a result of nearly 100 years of experience, we understand that any production line or assembly line changes, machine removals or plant relocations can cause a major disruption to your manufacturing facility. Our project management team will plan accordingly to ensure your production downtime is minimised during the relocation process.
To ensure all aspects of your factory relocation project are accurately planned, we reference your layout drawings and will provide you with a project schedule Gantt chart, detailing the scope of our machinery removal process. This helps to provide clarity on how each phase of the factory relocation service will progress.
Our process starts with an in-depth discussion to understand your factory relocation project. We will then arrange a site visit so that we can carry out a comprehensive risk assessment. This ensures every detail of the project is project managed, planned and analysed and plant relocations involving the removal of heavy machinery can be completed safely and on time, without any unforeseen circumstances.
Where required, our team will operate out of hours and across weekends to ensure the deadline for each phase is met.
Merritts can provide a turnkey solution for managing and executing the removal and relocation of heavy machinery from factories and plants in a cost effective and efficient way.
