Plant Layout Design.
Each new project may require several different types of equipment needing to be brought together to form a complete plant. All potential suppliers will have their own ideas on how their equipment should integrate into the plant.
Rarely is this in the best interest of the project as changes to the norm are not usually appreciated. An overview needs to be taken. At Calm we like to challenge these norms an propose methods that are of the interest of the end user not the supplier.
Using this approach, many innovative ideas have been created, all helping to make a plant tailor-made to the customers needs.

Buying Recycling equipment is an expensive business. Budget control and financial time line planning is key to the success of any project.
Primarily before any large investment is started, a financial/payback plan is necessary to justify such expenditure to possibly a board, bank or financial institution.
Once the project is underway it is critical to continuously monitor and report on any variances to both the budget and the financial timeline.
Our experience spans from small machine purchases to multi million pound projects around the world. Dealing with bank guarantees, bills of lading, warranty claims, all that is related to the bottom line.
At calm we aim to eliminate unnecessary or redundant activities, streamline processes, and reduce complexity. We always focus on aligning desired process improvements with the optimal use of people and technology. Without this focus, process changes are unsustainable.
In the recycling business, the smallest adjustment may drastically improve the yield of recovery from the processed material, vastly increasing profits.
