Arla Dairies Closure and Demolition - Case Study - Food Processing


Arla Dairies, a major milk producer and processor, decided to close a key processing plant in Essex. They wished to appoint a single party to market and sell all food processing assets, along with dismantling and demolishing the buildings to leave a cleared site for development.


Along with a team of professional demolition contractors, Eddisons CJM proposed a unified approach including demolition and the sale and disposal of complex assets to Arla board.


Dairy assets included:

  • Milk processing equipment
  • Packaging equipment
  • A large modern effluent treatment plant

Some of the tanks were so large that needed to be transported at night. Eddisons CJM was responsible for the security of the site, ensuring the proper handling of the assets.


·       Sales by auction and private treaty were arranged. Eddisons CJM successfully sold the most complex assets via negotiation and the remaining processing equipment through auction. Buyers included parties from the UK, Ireland and Europe.

·       The sale approach realised was in line with the initial valuation.

·       Clearance of the site was handled according to the original removal plan, dismantling of equipment, following which the site was demolished, cleared and handed back to the client on time and within budget.
