Toms Group factory
Poland I Nowa Sól

Background

Danish chocolate manufacturer, Toms Group recently invested in a new chocolate production facility in Nowa Sól, Poland. In its first year of operation, the factory created 130 new job opportunities for the locals, and with a positive outlook to the future, this number is planned to be increased significantly in the future.

Requirements

Food production facilities typically need to comply with various regulations and follow strict guidelines in terms of material usage at the facility. The new building in Nowa Sól was no exception. One of the most critical points of attention was that the materials used had to have a very high corrosion resistance so they can maintain their serviceability despite the corrosive environment.

Solution

The Walraven engineers worked in close collaboration with the main and sub-contractors throughout the project. The result was a modern, effective and 100% compliant piping system with a particular focus on heating pipes, ventilation pipes and ventilation ducts. Due to the highly corrosive environment, Walraven recommended the installation of a BIS UltraProtect® 1000 fastening system. All products within the system are coated with a special BIS UtraProtect® 1000 coating, which withstands up to 1000 hours of salt spray testing (according to ISO 9227) and offers excellent protection against corrosion.
