With a demanding production schedule, leading fishmeal and fish oil manufacturer United Fish Industries (UFI) turned to Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) to ensure the rapid and successful installation of a new floor system at their production facility in Killybegs.
Based in Co Donegal, United Fish Industries (UFI) has been operating in Killybegs for over 50 years as a support service to the fishing industry. A subsidiary of Origin Enterprises, UFI specialises in fishmeal and fish oil manufacturing; employing 150 people in its operations in Killybegs, Aberdeen, the Shetland Islands and Grimsby.
Recently UFI required a flooring contractor to supply and install a new 300m2 floor system suitable for their fishing manufacturing. Due to a demanding production schedule, UFI required the new floor system to be installed during a short production shutdown period over Christmas.
With year’s of experience in supplying and fitting flooring systems for the food and fishing manufacturing industry, UFI engaged AFS to ensure both a high quality of floor finish and for the the project to be completed during the shutdown period.
AFS began the project by vacuum diamond grinding the existing concrete floor and applying a primer scratch coat to act as a key. Following preparation, AFS supplied and fitted a MC DUR2500 floor system with matching coving detail to upstands. In addition to the tight deadlines and rapid installation, AFS specialised team were able to carry out all preparation and installation works around existing machinery and pipework in the production facility.
The installed flooring system meet the requirements of both the client and of today’s demanding fishing industry.
