Encompass Blue for Food Manufacturing & Pharmaceutical

Food manufacturing and pharmaceutical sites deal with an array of machinery and equipment for the mass production of goods. A big challenge in this sector is inconsistent temperature and humidity control. It is also important to ensure optimum safety and security of staff on site and high quality and integrity of the produce. For a smooth and successful process, indoor environment monitoring and heightened air quality are very important. Furthermore, the heavy machinery results in substantial energy bills, and they are also at risk of malfunctions and general wear-and-tear.
