Applied Nutrition is an exemplar SME based in the Liverpool City Region, achieving local success and national recognition with their sports nutrition products. The MTC was enlisted to help them expand and take their business to the next level.
Applied Nutrition Ltd. in Knowsley are manufacturers of sports nutrition and supplements products, with a blending, filling, packing and warehouse operation.
The business has seen exponential growth in sales, and this has led to increased requirements for expanding operations in their current state. There is an opportunity to expand site manufacturing and warehouse space by taking over a neighbouring unit.
The company is looking to invest in a new type of blending system, as well as an automatic filling line following their own analysis of user requirements.
Following a line walk and subsequent discussion, MTC identified the need for analyses of current and future production data, run rates, blending times and fill line timings in more detail.
This will help sanitize the original site operations' user requirements to refine the Matcon system requirements.
Blending machinery requirements' suitability can
be determined for both current and future state requirements, to improve speed of commissioning and avoiding any costly changes to spec requirements at a later date.
