Tullamore Dew – Stainless Steel Tanks
Over the last couple of years, the drinks industry has seen a number of large investments in plant and processing equipment, and Spectac International has played a significant part in the successful delivery of many of these projects. Tullamore Dew is the latest brand to announce a major investment in its facilities by adding new stainless steel tanks.
Tullamore Dew recently outlined plans to upgrade their production facilities in Ireland due to an increase in demand for the whiskey. Spectac International first worked with Tullamore Dew in 2013 completing pipework installation and tank manufacturing. We are excited to be working on the latest plans for the expansion of the Tullamore Dew distillery in Offaly.
We have extensive relevant industry experience, as a leading supplier for turnkey solutions, producing fully automated plants – from design through to commissioning. And because we fabricate all relevant products too, we have an excellent reputation for producing a range of high quality brewing and distilling equipment including stainless steel tanks, Distilling and Storage Vessels, Mash Tun Vessels, Skid Units, Mixing Vessels Spirit Receivers, Wash Back Vessels, Spent Lees Vessels, Spirit Receivers and more.
In terms of the Tullamore Dew project, we are in the middle of manufacturing the new tank farm for the distillery ranging in capacity from 1,000L – 100,000L. With 30 years’ experience producing stainless steel tanks and pipework systems for leading brands such as Diageo, Bushmills and others in the Beer and Whiskey world we are able bring in-depth knowledge and expertise to the project.
Just over a year ago Spectac International opened the doors to a new larger production facility that allows us keep up with increased demand for our products – it also facilitated the further implementation of lean processes, which has improved efficiency at the plant. We also developed a high bay facility in the new building, giving us the extra space and facilities to produce even larger vessels for our clients.
Spectac International’s management team keep a constant focus on acquiring the latest high end production equipment. One of the latest additions is the plasma welding machine. This allows our production team to produce high quality welding for customers, with a shorter turnaround time, again increasing efficiencies. Ultimately this ongoing programme of investment enables us to offer high quality products at extremely competitive prices.
Complete Distillery Systems
Spectac International’s extensive experience means that we have the skills and capabilities to build complete distillery systems for clients. Our highly skilled team of engineers are able to deliver projects on time and within budget. By focusing on our customers’ needs and integrating the latest in manufacturing technology, such as PLC controls for automated systems, we are the only company in Ireland to provide a turnkey service for industrial distilleries.
How do we do it?
Largely this is down to experience, having honed our skills over time. Once the finalised drawings and the design of the production facilities has been completed we compile a full list of the equipment needed, the set up required for automated manufacturing controls, fit out, timeframe and budget.
Being involved right from the planning and design phase enables us to complete projects quickly and efficiently and dealing with a sole supplier saves cost for our clients. It also reduces the risks associated with working with multiple suppliers. As a result, our customers are very satisfied with the quality of the projects delivered – you can read some of our client testimonials here.
After Sales Support & Maintenance
We pride ourselves on providing excellent aftersales service, especially when supplying complete distillery systems for clients. In the planning and preparation phase it’s impossible to tell exactly how a finished system will work in reality. Fine tuning the system once operational is standard practice and Spectac International ensures that a team of technicians will be on hand to make any necessary adjustments.
We also provide our clients with reliable post-commissioning maintenance support – whether purchasing a full distillery system or a new stainless steel tank. The right maintenance will improve longevity in the equipment and can also increase productivity.
