Specialising in design, build, project management and consultancy, FEG prides itself in problem solving and generating cost savings for its clients.
With a client roster reading like a Who’s Who of major manufacturers, including United Biscuits (McVities and Jacobs), Kerry Ingredients and Flavours, General Mills, Allied Bakeries, Pennine Foods, and Calder Foods, FEG brings extensive knowledge and experience to every project it delivers.
Typically, customers know what they’re looking for because they have identified their business needs or opportunity, but they need to call on the experience of FEG to formulate their objectives, develop the scope and specifications, assemble the project team and deliver the results. In some cases the company will supply a project manager to work from the client’s offices, but major projects, such as a recent £3m project to install a new production facility, are taken on as a complete service from feasibility to handover, with FEG providing skilled staff such as electrical and mechanical design engineers.
What sets FEG apart is the combination of experience, education and skills that many customers don’t have in-house. Chris Williams, managing director at FEG said: “This allows us to offer our clients a ‘cradle to grave’ service including CE Marking, CDM Coordinator, Electrical and Control Design, Mechanical Design (2D and 3D), Commissioning and Training Plans, and Planned Maintenance Schedules.”
Many clients need their resources focused on the day to day running of their existing facilities ensuring their production targets are achieved. Running projects and conducting feasibility studies can be a distraction from their key objectives. FEG ensure focus is given to any project and give a single point of accountability.
FEG’s managers and engineers are experienced in moving facilities and setting up new ones in the UK, Europe and South America. The company is presently working with UKTI to explore more international markets.
Chris Williams, added: “Many of our customers are repeat customers, we don’t just provide one service to customers, they use us again and again. If you help solve their problems, then they’re going to call you up again.”
