AAK (UK) Limited bakery services - over 30 years of bakery expertise – at your service
AAK (UK) Limited Engineering Services provides engineering and technical support to bakers and food manufacturers throughout the world. We specialise in the design and construction of tailor made systems to deliver, store and apply food liquids, oils and emulsions. From the simplest stand-alone release agent spray gun in bakery equipment, to the turnkey design and installation of a bulk storage tank farm, our approach is the same. We aim to provide exactly what food manufacturers need, no more, no less.
Much of our work is concerned with the bulk supply, storage and use of AAK (UK) Limited margarines, fats, shortenings and emulsifiers. In addition we support the provision of AAK (UK) Limited processing oils through the design and development of bespoke application systems. But it doesn’t end there.
We also work with food manufacturers on a wide range of general engineering projects, from the design of a simple tank and associated pipe work to the decommissioning, removal and re-commissioning of an entire edible oil refinery. Whatever the project and whatever its complexity, we combine food industry know-how, with engineering expertise and project management skills to deliver the optimum, tailor made solution.
Continuous supply - guaranteed
Every AAK (UK) Limited bulk storage system user, large or small, benefits from connection to our sophisticated stock control system. This low maintenance, ‘fit and forget’ solution uses accurate volume measurement combined with tried and tested telemetry to allow stock levels to be monitored remotely. By automatically triggering new deliveries when the stock falls to an agreed level, this proven system is an effective guarantee against stock shortages and damaging stoppages. It can also be used to monitor usage and forecast future trends.
Application know-how, manufacturing success
As a team we can provide a clear understanding of the composition, properties and functionality of processing oils or food ingredients. This is vital when it comes to the design and development of food manufacturing equipment. Tried and tested in the field over many years, AAK (UK) Limited proven technologies include:
- Spray gun applicators
- Spinning disc applicators
- Drip tube and brush applicators
- Low level dough bowl oilers
- Metering and batching equipment
AAK (UK) Limited bakery services started life over 30 years ago as the team which designed and built AAK (UK) Limited edible oil refinery (Europe’s largest) and associated production facilities in Hull. Customers began almost immediately to ask for support with technical issues and we were pleased to help. We expanded quickly and invested heavily in people and equipment to meet growing demand.
In 2007 the team was boosted by our merger with the Croda Food Services, whose experience of the baking industry dates back for over 100 years. The Croda bakery engineering services team brought with them unmatched understanding of the formulation, supply and application of specialist bakery ingredients and processing oils.
