Air Compressors in East Anglia
East Anglia is an historic part of the UK. East Anglia incorporates the counties of Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire along with others depending on who you talk to! Key towns in the East Anglia are Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Felixstowe. Industry in the region really falls into two different sectors, agriculture/food and logistics and as a result demand for support for air compressors in East Anglia is high.
The biggest industry in the region is Agriculture and Food. The largely flat land is ideal for arable farms with the main agricultural products being wheat, barley and sugar beet. There are a large number of food processing and preparation factory’s across the county including British Sugar and Birds Eye and several well known breweries.
The other key industry for the county is logistics with the Port of Felixstowe being the UK’s biggest shipping container port and it is also a key European hub port accepting some of the largest containerships in the world.
Agriculture, Food and Logistics are all big users of air compressors and compressed air. Within food production compressed air is used for cleaning, packaging and food protection. With food storage and protection specialist gases such as Nitrogen fed into the air tight packaging to give the food product a longer shelf life.
Within the logistics industry compressed air is used in warehouse control systems and conveyers as well as the more traditional vehicle maintenance including air powered tools, repairs and spraying.
