I first found the contact details for Factory Plant Associates on the internet. From my first conversation they were professional, understanding and experienced in delivering to my requirements.

We had asked them to move a heavy highly sensitive machine across a floating clean room floor. They assessed our requirements and I felt confident from out first contact and sequential meeting they could complete the job in a safe manner with the timescales and competitive price we expected.

I have no hesitation in recommending Factory Plant Associates to other organisations and certainly will be using them in the future!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at Factory Plant Associates Ltd for a professional job carried out on time and within budget. The timing and planning was done on a very strict programme to relocate our factory into new premises, being able to utilise weekend working patterns and outside normal working hours allowed us to minimise on Company downtime. I would recommend anybody who may require your facilities!

Thank you once again!

Dale ChidwickMIF Filter Systems Ltd

I have been asked to convey FGW’s and Laira Depots thanks from the DEM, Production Managers, Plant and Production Team Leaders who have been dealing with you on site. I understand the way this project (Removal of the Atlas Wheel Lathe) has been planned and carried out at Laira has been exceptional. The production teams have identified the way your company has worked together with them to keep to the required timescales, in a safe manner and to ensure as little impact on the depot production processes and requirements was excellent.

Once again, many thanks for making such a good start to this project and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Gavin Payne First Great Western

We have been dealing with Factory Plant Associates Ltd for over one year. In this time they have been involved with us in the move of two manufacturing units. We have found them to be reliable and efficient in all the work they have done for us.

The staff are particularly courteous and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble.

We have no hesitation in recommending Factory Plant Associates Ltd for machinery and factory removals to any other company!

Charles WilliamsMasefield-Epson Ltd

May I take this opportunity of thanking you for your professional manner with which Factory Plant Associates Ltd relocated our heavy machinery to our new manufacturing facility.

I was most impressed with the efficiency and flexibility you all set about achieving the task when our agreed relocation schedule had to be revised to meet the requirements of the business when we had to prioritise the use of our resources to meet the business relocation plan. This had to be managed during a very short window of opportunity and completed on time to receive the next aircraft under our contracted aircraft maintenance schedule.

I would also like to thank you for providing further assistance when our arrangements for transportation failed at the last minute where we had to undertake to relocate some of the other heavier machines ourselves. Although the transportation failure was through no fault of our own, you were able to lend your considerable expertise, manpower and equipment to help us over the hurdle within your tight relocation schedule helping us to achieve ours. Your flexibility and willingness to help others whilst not taking advantage of a deteriorating situation does you credit.

It is for these reasons that I would personally recommend Factory Plant Associates Ltd to any company that has a requirement to move machinery, plant and equipment of any kind from one place to another in a safe and uneventful manner.

Please see the below email from the client, I know it is very rare that customers actually praise people these days but I must say that it is well deserved, your service from the start has been excellent and your lads on site where brilliant, please pass my thanks on as well as the clients for a very professional service.

I didn’t get a chance to see FPA off this afternoon, but I did want to thank them for their work, they were positive and effective, and they got on with the job with no fuss to me.

One example of their pro-active approach was when the folding door jammed they had a good go of fixing it themselves (but the fault was electrical).

I was pleased with their work, and would be more than happy if you decide to use them again when it comes to Boiler 3.

Please feel free to pass on my thanks to Wayne and FPA.

Stephen Browning Project Manager

To Whom it may concern,

Factory Plant Associates (FPA) were chosen by FOSROC UK Limited to undertake a factory move at our Tamworth site.

FOSROC’s Project Oscar required that FPA move 10 items of heavy plant, the relocation of 20 ton silo’s, pipe works, electrical installations, Dilapidation activity, and the building of a zone 2 cell for our site.  The entire project had a tight time line of 7 weeks.

Factory Plant Associates provided highly skilled staff and sub-contractors to perform all activities.  They also covered additional responsibility by definition of competence for CDMC.  The project was delivered on time in full to the deadline; each phase was covered by detailed method statements to assure that our operational capability received minimal impact.  The FPA team worked safely within our operations affording full protection to themselves and our operational teams.  Throughout all phases not one first aid case or incident was reported making the project highly successful for safety.

We chose Factory Plant Associates from the larger providers who also tendered for this project because they gave confidence that costs would not increase, the timeline would be achieved, and the additional support if required would be there to assure success.  It is without doubt that this was all achieved.

Wayne Jones the Director of Factory Plant, gave FOSROC first class service throughout, working with his team he went beyond scope removing over one hundred tons of scrap metal that he recycled back into the project as cash.  Because of examples like this the project came in significantly under budget.  I would without doubt unreservedly recommend Wayne Jones and the FPA team to any organisation wishing to use his services.

Morning  Wayne

 As you can see from the passage below from our Directors we won an award for our CO2 installation at Bidfood Basingstoke.

From a personal point of view this makes me extremely happy as it is the first CO2 project that I have been involved with from enquiry through to the award of the order, so to have won an award is very pleasing.

This couldn’t have happened without the excellent project management of Lee Wallhead and also Factory Plant Associates for their continued support.

A big thank you to you all especially those involved for their expertise and patience in getting me there in the end.

Thank you all.

Kind Regards


Dear all,

We are extremely proud to announce that we won the Sustainability Supplier of the Year Award at the Bidcorp annual charity dinner last week. The event was organised by Bidfood, Best Food Logistics and Bidfresh, and raised circa £35,000 for charity.

The award win follows a very successful project for Bidfood at their depot in Basingstoke, where we installed a CO2 refrigeration system. As their inaugural CO2 installation, the project marks a key milestone for Bidfood in taking their first steps with the natural refrigerant CO2, and it is now their preferred refrigerant with more systems planned for the Bidfood estate.

We are over the moon to receive the award, and it is very humbling for us to be recognised for the excellent work we have done with Bidfood. Well done to everyone involved in delivering services to Bidfood, this is a fantastic achievement of which we should be very proud!

Darren Humphries Industrial Contracts Manager (North)

Factory Plant Associates Ltd were awarded numerous contracts to work alongside our projects team across the UK.

We continue to use their services and would recommend them to other Companies as a professional business that dedicates all there efforts to support your requirements.

Barry Rowley TATA Steel Automotive

Factory Plant Associates have been a fantastic organisation to work with where they were given a tight time frame to relocate all of our equipment, furniture,

Machinery etc from our old facility in West Bromwich to our brand new state of the art Bolting Innovation Centre in Wolverhampton.  They executed this project

with a lot of care and attention.  Clint and Wayne have been absolutely amazing with their speed and service as they endeavoured to deliver all of our special requirements and have provided valuable advice when moving our CNC machinery, stock and work in progress.   They made sure that all equipment and machinery was delivered on time to our project plan and helped us to minimise downtime in production during our relocation phase.  They have a great team that take pride in their work and I have to say that I couldn’t ask for a better team/company to help us with our relocation.

Excellent company to work with and I would definitely get in touch with Wayne again should another project like this came across!  Top-class service from a very proud team of professionals!
