ProjectLink scheme doubles Coombe capacity
Food industry construction company ProjectLink has completed a £4m project to double the processing capacity at Coombe Fisheries.
ProjectLink built a new seafood packing, freezing and temperature-controlled storage facility for the business in Barnstaple.
It also installed three blast freezers, capable of freezing 90 tonnes of seafood, in the 21,000 sq ft building, as well as a spiral and tunnel freezer, production area and a holding freezer with the capacity for 650 pallets.
Iain Spear, joint managing director of Coombe Fisheries, said: "Our initial brief was to find a way of modifying our existing site and ProjectLink have delivered fresh ideas that have doubled our processing capacity."
Darren Williams, managing director at ProjectLink, added: "Seafood is of paramount importance to the South West economy and Coombe Fisheries is a key business within this industry.
"We’re proud to have played a part in their on-going success by delivering such a significant project for them, especially as it gave us the opportunity to design and build a facility that’s functional and innovative, as well as aesthetically pleasing."
