Union Industries, the UK’s leading manufacturer of high-speed industrial doors, has completed one of its largest individual projects with the supply and installation of 40 of its rapid-roller doors at Princes Group UK’s (Princes) food production site in Long Sutton.

Having supplied Princes with more than 100 high-speed industrial doors across seven of its sites since 2010, Leeds-based Union Industries has installed a further 40 rapid-roller doors at its Long Sutton site near Spalding in Lincolnshire.

An international food and drink group, Princes is involved in the manufacture, import and distribution of branded and customer own brand products. Princes’ brands and products span over 20 different categories, including fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, soups, pastes, pasta, cooking sauces, edible oils and a wide range of soft drinks sectors.

Princes is currently engaging in an £80m investment programme at its Long Sutton facility – the company’s largest food production site in the UK – providing state-of-the-art equipment, better energy efficiency and increased production as part of its long-term commitment to UK manufacturing.

A multi-temperature facility with ambient, chilled and frozen environments, Princes’ extension of the Long Sutton site commanded an additional investment of 40 of Union’s fast-action roller doors.

Union installed a selection of rapid-rise doors from its market-leading range, including small internal Lion Doors for pedestrian and pallet traffic use, larger internal Matadoors and Bulldoors for forklift truck traffic between ambient and chill areas, heavy duty Ramdoor high-speed doors for external openings, and two of Union’s revolutionary Eiger Doors for cold store applications.

Patrick McNamee, Group Project Controller at Princes, said: “Since the first installations back in 2010, we have been incredibly impressed by the quality of Union Industries’ doors and the aftersales service we receive from the team is second to none.”

Patrick added: “The new investments in Long Sutton total just under £80m, and will improve the efficient running of the site and enhance product quality and manufacturing controls. Thankfully, with Union Industries’ assistance, we can feel confident that we have the necessary fixtures in place to support and strengthen productivity at the site.”

Alan Hirst, Sales Director for Union Industries, said: “This was another large-scale installation by our team, and one that was delivered on-time, to budget and provided an effective solution for the customer.

“Our range of high-speed roller doors are engineered and created to be resilient, long lasting and to undergo high intensity operations, while being tailored to meet our clients’ individual requirements. In this instance, we worked closely with Princes’ architects and consultants to ensure specifications were matched to each individual application.”
