Union Industries deliver meaty deal for Roberts of Port Dinowic

Union Industries has returned to Roberts of Port Dinowic to keep its high standard prepared meals fantastically fresh with a state-of-the-art Eiger Freezer Door.

Roberts of Port Dinorwic, who work with organisations across the UK and internationally, needed a more efficient alternative to replace and upgrade a slow, insulated door, which was located at the entrance to its main freezer.

After purchasing two full stainless steel Matadoors from Union Industries in 2015 for the chilled food area, Roberts of Port Dinowic made the decision to purchase an Eiger Door to replace the previous slow sliding door. Union’s Eiger Door is the first automatic fast-acting, rapid roll freezer door to operate at high speed effectively, which in this case allows the area to remain at -20°c, whilst decreasing the amount of ambient air making its way into the freezer.

Since installing the door, there has been a significant reduction in snow and ice build-up on the door blade and around the freezer opening as well as helping to cut down maintenance and energy costs. Similar to other rapid action doors in Union’s range, the Eiger Door also boasts the ‘Crash-Out & Auto-Reset’ feature which allows the door to remain operable even after an impact to the bottom beam.

Established in 1924, Roberts of Port Dinorwic is a fourth generation business renowned within the prepared foods industry for the development and supply of an extensive range of meals and components to the restaurant, pub chain, leisure sector, foodservice, retail, manufacturing and public sector. The directors Sara and Miriam Roberts have a structured plant and technology investment programme for the 10 acre production site, which keeps the new product development and manufacturing service at the forefront of the industry and year on year wins a prestigious BRC A grade certificate.

Sara Roberts, joint Director of Roberts of Port Dinorwic said, “We strive to maintain the quality of our products and the services that we provide. The Eiger Door Union Industries has supplied has ensured we can gain regular access to our main freezer without compromising the temperature.”

Neil Irwin, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries added, “Working with Roberts of Port Dinorwic for the second time has been a testament to the high level of quality available in our range of doors. The automatic rapid roll feature and the specialised elements of the Eiger Door have been unparalleled by any other company, which is why we remain a top choice for companies in the food manufacturing sector.”
