Tannoy System – Guenther Bakeries

    Guenther Bakeries


    Guenther Bakeries UK Ltd., a division of San Antonio-based C.H. Guenther & Son, are a large scale food manufacturer with several sites around the UK. Specialising in fresh and frozen bread, rolls, cakes, pies and other perishable baked foods, they work with major fast food companies such as McDonalds.

    We were tasked with installing the cable to the new public address system at the Heywood facility.

    The Challenge:

    The tannoy and microphone system was to be installed throughout production, the warehouse and the offices. We had to second fix the wiring to the field locations around the site.

    Working for such a large client, within the food production environment adds to the challenge. The factory is operational around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With occasional production downtime for 8hrs on a Saturday.

    This made managing the logistics crucial in order to complete the project on time.

    The Solution:

    During the week, whilst the factory was operational, we would cable as close to the working production lines as possible, being careful to not cause any disruption to the production process.

    Once we were in a suitable position, we liaised with the production management, to arrange access on Saturdays.

    We aimed to utilise the downtime on Saturdays when the majority of production was closed. This enabled us to work above the lines without the worry of contaminating the produce.

    The Outcome:

    Together with PAS Sound Engineering, we produced a fully functioning public address system with operational coverage around the whole premises, allowing the management to portray announcements throughout the building.
