Premier Technical Services Group PLC’s (PTSG) Building Access Specialists division has recently completed a contract inspecting and maintaining three steel chimneys at Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) Erith Ltd.
Established in 1965, ADM Erith Ltd is a food and oil manufacturing company situated in Kent. ADM’s operations in the UK include seven flour mills, two oil refineries, an oils & fats packaging facility, a probiotic supplement manufacturing facility and a flavours and specialty ingredients sales office.
PTSG’s skilled steeplejacks attended the site at Erith to carry out inspections to three identical steel chimneys. Upon completing the work, engineers identified the need for some remedial repairs. The repairs were carried out using steeplejack ladders and rope access equipment to gain access to the upper perimeter of the structures. The job was finalised by a three-man team from PTSG and the client was exceptionally pleased with the results.
PTSG is one of the UK’s leaders in gaining access to unconventional structures and buildings to undertake a full range of niche specialist services. In addition to steeplejack methods and rope access, the Group’s specialists routinely use building maintenance units, mobile elevating work platforms and ladders to complete work safely and effectively.
