Providing cost management services for McColgan’s food factory extension

We have been appointed to provide cost management services for the third phase of a major extension to the McColgan’s food processing factory in Northern Ireland.

We successfully managed costs during the first two phases of the expansion, and will continue to safeguard McColgan’s commercial interests at every stage of the design, procurement and construction of the 49,000ft2 third phase.

The project, which is being built in a live environment, is set to create 43 new jobs. The latest phase is part of an overall £7.3m investment in the business, which will include new equipment and a state of the art packing and dispatch facility that will help develop McColgan’s customer base and prepare for future growth.

Colm Lavery, Director, added: “Our strong track record in the industrial & manufacturing sector speaks for itself having recently supported the delivery of facilities for Bombardier, BMW, Rolls-Royce and Daimler Benz globally.

“We recognise that partnering with our clients at every stage of the investment and construction process is vital to offer them concrete cost alternatives and efficiencies, without compromising on quality.

“I am confident we can deploy our extensive experience to deliver a bespoke cost management service to McColgan’s, and enable it to maximise its return on investment.”

Grainne Hampton, Managing Director of McColgan’s, added: “This latest investment will further develop our long term vision for the company’s growth strategy. The installation of cutting edge technology and production processes such as fully automated cook, cool and chill production lines will increase our capabilities as well as our capacity.

“These improvements will bring additional benefits to the final product along with improved production efficiency, which is critical in maintaining a competitive edge for our customers. In addition to this, our new product development team is expanding as we recognise innovation as key to our continued success.

“Our position as one of the leading savoury and sweet pastry manufacturers in the UK and Ireland will be strengthened by this investment.”
