Emergency drying solution gets pharmaceutical manufacturer back on track

Unprecedented levels of rainfall across South Wales caused largescale flooding throughout much of the region, including at the premises of a longstanding customer. Our client is responsible for manufacturing gelatins and peptides to form the coating of a range of pharmaceutical products – most commonly antibiotics – but the effects of Storm Dennis had seriously impeded their operations.

International steel manufacturer saved six-figure sum

Andrews Dehumidification has helped one of Europe’s largest steel producers save a staggering £120,000 this winter, after providing them with a tailor-made drying arrangement. The steelworks had previously sought assistance from a competitor but extortionate fuel costs led to them to search elsewhere for a more cost-efficient solution.

Sophisticated dehumidification equipment was required in order to protect a huge steel shipment ahead of transportation. Seasonal conditions either side of Christmas typically see higher moisture content in the air, which in turn leads to condensation forming on interior surfaces – including valuable items.

High moisture content outdoors can often cause ventilation systems to lose effectiveness which will in turn lead to delicate crops becoming spoiled if appropriate steps are not taken at an early stage.
