Ultima Foods awarded us a large part of the management project mandate to install a new bottling line for drinkable yogurt. Our overall goal was to increase the company’s production capacity and thus, meet the growing consumers demand for this type of product.
This was a two-phase project. In the 1st phase, we needed to make the new bottling line operational while keeping some manual operations. In the 2nd phase, we needed to add an automated conveyor to ensure the products could be dispatched to distribution centres.
Merkur managed the project up to $6.5 M.; 75% of the total budget. Merkur supported the client with full technical team of 2 to 3 mechanical and electrical engineers. Implementing best business practices in a project management context resulted in better control of delivery, budget and quality of the project.
