NLT Mechanical reaches milestone after installing more than 50 miles of conveyor systems

With 45 years of combined experience, IntraLogisteX exhibitor NLT Mechanical has a host of experienced site managers and mechanical engineers in the UK.

Whilst working with their customer Forterra, NLT have reached their target as of February 2023 on their market-leading Desford manufacturing centre.

Mark Roberts, Project Manager at NLT said: “reaching the 50-mile mark has been a great moment for NLT and achieving it with a company like Forterra has been fantastic. We have been working on their factories across the UK since 2019 on projects such as conveyor installation, sortation systems, air conditioning, electrical engineering, structural engineering, machinery installation, and electric vehicle charge point installation. We look forward to the next 50 miles!”

Intelligently designed conveyor systems improve production outputs and, once completed, Forterra’s Desford site will produce 180 million bricks per year, effectively doubling their output. Once the work is completed, NLT Mechanical will remain on hand for any breakdowns and maintenance issues 24/7 to ensure complete peace of mind for Forterra.

Locus Robotics (Stand i710) will be at IntraLogisteX on 28-29 March 2023 at the NEC Birmingham. For more information, visit
