The brief

When Sensient Flavours, an American-owned manufacturer of specialised ingredients, decided to upgrade their raw ingredient goods in and powder infeed area to comply with up-to-date food safety standards, Oakley EMS were the obvious partner of choice to deliver this multifaceted, turnkey project with minimum disruption to business functions.

Our solution

A large, two-storey dilapidated pallet lift was required to be safely removed and replaced with a brand new equivalent. The new lift was designed and built to conform to stringent operator safety standards, in order to protect operatives from injury during use. The removal and re-instatement of this double storey lift in itself presented a significant challenge, which was analysed and planned by the Oakley team to be a safe and efficient operation.

Another significant challenge presented by this project was transforming what was initially a crude warehouse and storage environment into a food-safe space complying to modern food manufacturing standards. In order
to do this hygienic food grade white walling panels were used to line the main area, and existing services, pipework etc were enclosed, with access hatches installed to allow access to required controls.


The Oakley technical design team worked seamlessly with the project delivery team to deliver an outstanding quality of finish and functional design combined with the latest in food safety compliance, and with minimum disruption to the day-to-day operation of the factory. Mission accomplished!

Oakley displayed a clear understanding of what mattered to Sensient, delivering a critical project on time and with minimal disruption.
