Significant growth for Western baked goods in the Middle East has ensured Spooner Industries reach into the GCC regions. Here the company has already installed multiple high capacity bread lines with more substantial contracts in the pipeline.
Following the success of the first Spooner/Newsmith bread production line currently producing over 8000 loaves per hour, work has now begun on the second full British production line, exceeding £3m.
Designed to produce quality English style tinned bread loaves, the line will include a proofer feed system, proofer to oven loop conveyors and a tin conveyor system including delidder, depanner and pan cleaner, together with tin and lid return conveyors all provided by Newsmith Stainless, world leaders in product handling. The 34m Spooner forced convection, high efficiency tunnel oven will incorporate internal walkways allowing access for engineering and hygiene staff as will the Spooner proofer.
Selling a concept and delivering a tailored product best describes what Spooner Industries has done successfully for over 85 years. Based on their unique forced convection technologies, equipment incorporates high performance airflow and control technologies together with energy efficient measures throughout. With no two contracts the same, problem solving is standard, with Spooner delivering pioneering engineering and manufacturing excellence through individual tailored solutions, every time.
Middle East Bakery Production Manager said, “There is a growing demand in the Middle East for the same quality of bread and baked goods that are produced in the UK. The best way to achieve this was to call in the experts from Spooner and Newsmith who know this industry inside out and have exceeded all our expectations with the equipment they designed and installed.”
