Project Background

It was a timely announcement given Rt Hon Michael Gove Environment Secretary gave notice that same week of restrictions on many plastics including straws commencing April 2020. The investment saw 100 new job created at the facility that needed a Distribution & Racked Warehouse Heating Solution.

Project Solution

From December 2018 BS Holdings Ltd the foremost leading agent in N Ireland for Powrmatic, developed the designs needed using the Powrmatic LNVx range of heaters and Destratification fans.


Project Result

BS Holdings also maintain their fleet of heaters including Powrmatic’s at Huhtamaki’s head office in Belfast. Where they manufacture packaging for MacDonald’s and KFC amongst many others.
