The Ace Group
The Ace Group are a Made in Yorkshire Gold Member
The Ace Group has over 20 years of experience in the compressed air industry, supplying, installing and maintaining compressed air systems for a huge variety of applications across the UK.
In recent years our Installation Division has grown due to increased demand for our expert team of Install Engineers led by Manager, Anthony Foale. This increase in demand has been fuelled by our knowledgeable Sales Team who are usually the first people on site to discuss each individual customer’s specific needs. The strength of our Sales Team, led by Chris Hyde, and proven expertise of our Installation Engineers has become a potent combination resulting in many large business wins in recent years.
In the last couple of months Sales and Installations have once again pulled together to produce one of the largest installation wins in Ace’s 20 year history. This upcoming project will see our engineers installing an extensive range of new equipment in a large canning factory in the midlands. The factory is in the process of replacing the majority of its heavy plant production line machinery and our team have already begun the work. The bulk of the installation will be carried out over four months and Ace has won three large equipment orders relating to this project.
A significant part of this project involves reinstating all necessary pipework to the new production line machinery as it arrives on site. Alongside this, some of the services that our engineers are due to install include low pressure compressed air, high pressure compressed air, vacuum, natural gas, deionized water, city water, cooling water, coolant and chilled water.
In addition to this Ace is also installing chilled water systems for the factory’s Decorator and a coolant system for their Body Maker machines. The Decorator is responsible for adding and embossing colour to the cans to create the designs we are familiar with across many beverage brands. The ink used in this process is temperature sensitive and so the chilled water system will allow for a precision controlled appropriate temperature to a within 0.1 degrees centigrade. The Body Makers transform the preformed aluminium into a more recognisable ‘can’ shape, a process which requires both lubrication and heat removal. These two needs are met by the installation of the coolant system.
Our expanding installation business means an expanding team and we are currently recruiting experienced engineers to supplement our expert team. Our Sales team is also set to grow in 2018 to meet our customer’s increasing demand. With such an influx of work and continued customer satisfaction, The Ace Group is sure to remain on its upward trend of success.
