Working alongside main contractor Chief Industries UK Ltd, Guttridge Ltd has supplied all the materials handling equipment for a new chicken feed unit in Georgia (Russia). The new unit lies at the heart of Chirina Ltd’s fully integrated chicken production business, the largest in this region. Seeking turnkey solutions with a strong focus on efficiency, Chirina turned to Chief to supply a fully integrated system for the provision of its poultry feed plant for maize, wheat and soya bean handling. The facility used a selection of equipment from the Guttridge Carier range for transportation of material, managing the bulk intake and bulk outloading.
"Guttridge has a good reputation and offers excellent service," said Mark Temple, Global Sales Manager, Chief industries UK Ltd. "It is a solid, established company, an important factor in the current economic climate, and easy to deal with. It’s great to be able to offer a fully UK engineered project that showcases what we, as a country, are capable of."
The whole facility was completed within 3 months, commissioned as planned during the maize harvest and now operates successfully and reliably. Rapid growth at Chirina Ltd has since led to further expansion and phase II of the project, an increase in capacity from 6,000 to 20,000 tonnes is already underway, with the same partners contracted for the job.
