Case Study: Prima Bakeries

Based in Redruth, Cornwall, Prima Bakeries, one of the county's most well known bakeries are renowned for their pasties and other traditional Cornish baked goods. The company's products can be found across the county in convenience stores and independent retail outlets as well as being served in a number of pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels. They will even deliver pasties by post! 

With some 200 product lines, Prima have experienced increased demand for their baked goods and as such needed to grow and expand the business. As part of this growth, it was decided that an additional fridge would be needed to ensure segregation between their high risk, finished products from raw ingredients.

As a previous customer of Dawsonrentals, the Managing Director, Mark Norton, approached us to discuss the details and asked us to draw up a proposal. With limited space internally, the new fridge needed to be sited outdoors but required access from inside the bakery. Martin Bowman, Regional Sales Manager, recognised the client was looking for a high quality product, a reliable service and a speedy response time, and he didn't disappoint. After ensuring the necessary site preparation had been completed by the company's building contractor, the aperture had been cut and the area cleared, the delivery and installation dates were booked in.

The finished product was built to the following specification:

Dimensions: 1.8m (W) x 2.5m (D) x 2.5m (H)

Door: 900mm (W) x 2100mm (H) - Fitted to internal wall with flashing and capping applied to the inside edge of the aperture.

Roof: Desmopol liquid roofing system applied over 100mm Kingspan roofing panels.

Refrigeration: Zanotti wall mounted, outdoor specific MAS123T1000F to run off a single phase supply.
