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 over 100 years of experience, we understand the unique challenges that any production line or assembly line changes, machine removals, or plant relocations required as part of a factory relocation project 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 a successfully completed relocation, 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.
When it comes to factory relocation projects, we understand the risks involved and as part of our process our experienced team will start 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, without any unforeseen circumstances.
Our team has extensive experience in factory moves and where required, we 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.
