Our Factory Moving & Business Asset Relocation Services

Welcome to Silver Knight Machinaries, Your Trusted Factor Relocation Partner for Business Asset Relocations.

At Silver Knight, we understand that moving a factory or relocating your business assets is a complex, critical, and highly specialised task that can cause disruption from downtime and lost productivity to issues with your supply chain.

That is why our comprehensive service is designed to handle every aspect of your move, ensuring you get a seamless, secure, and efficient move from start to finish and as quickly as possible.

What is the relocation of a factory?

A factory move involves moving the entire manufacturing operations from one location to another. This process includes dismantling equipment, transporting it to the new site, and setting it up again, all while keeping health and safety at the forefront while moving your machines to your new factory or a new facility.

It can be done for various reasons, such as cost savings, better access to resources, or proximity to key markets. The process requires careful planning and coordination to minimise disruptions.

How long does it take to relocate a factory?

The relocation process varies greatly depending on the size of the operation, the distance to the new location, and the complexity of the equipment, to name only a few. As a result, a project plan can be created first, which outlines the timeframes.

However, generally, it can take several months to over a year to relocate a whole large factory and production facility when there is a wide range of machines involved in the more, so planning and preparation are crucial to minimise your downtime as much as possible.

Meanwhile, smaller factories can be opened in a week or so.

What is plant relocation?

Plant relocation refers to moving an entire manufacturing facility from one place to another. This involves transporting machinery, equipment, and sometimes the workforce.

The aim is usually to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, or gain access to better resources. Like factory relocation, it requires meticulous planning, logistical coordination, and attention to detail to ensure the move is successful and disruption is minimised.

What We Offer

Our factory relocation team offers a number of things when it comes to relocating your factory or business assets. For instance, these can consist of:

Pre-Move Consultation and Planning

Every successful move begins with the perfect planning phase. That is why our industrial moving experts work closely with you to understand your unique needs, timelines, and challenges, which machines are being decommissioned and replaced, and whether any lift plans are completed and in place. Furthermore, this also extends to our in-house team to what team members we need where and when, such as whether our crane operators are on-site if one of our mobile cranes is required, to what contingency plans need to be in place if things don't go exactly to plan.

As a result, our factory relocation plan will look to deploy specialist equipment so that your manufacturing plant relocation experiences minimal downtime and disruption to your operations, using our own machines, such as our own Versa Lifts

This planning stage for any industrial relocation then helps to identify any potential risks, what health and safety precautions need to be implemented, down to the exact machine removal, along with identifying the full factory layout and the exact project team that will be deployed.

Specialised Machine Packing and Handling

We understand the value of your machinery, equipment, and overall assets. That is why our team of skilled machine-mover professionals employ the latest packing techniques and materials, ensuring your assets are securely transported to their new location, using specialised heavy-lifting machinery movers, along with their extensive experience, all while making sure that regulatory compliance is followed as well.

Transportation Logistics

Leveraging our extensive network, project planning, and experience in logistics, we will manage all aspects of your move to align with your business needs. This includes planning for shipping costs and factoring in local regulations, as well as what happens if wide loads are needed for more complex factory moves or even if you are moving just a single machine to different countries.

So, whether it is a local, national, or international relocation or you are after a full turnkey factory relocation, we will ensure your assets are delivered safely and efficiently, no matter the phase of the project. This will allow you to keep your production schedules unchanged with minimal disruption as much as possible, ensuring your customer base remains happy with your business.

Installation and Setup

Moving an existing factory is only part of the equation as we understand that the whole process can tend to be a challenging project, involving complex machinery, that also requires knowledge of both mechanical & electrical services, that is why we can offer you a more Turnkey solution, which is really useful when you are moving to different locations.

Our entire factory relocation service can extend to the installation and setup of your machinery and equipment at your new location as well - ensuring everything is up and running as quickly as possible with our quality control processes.

Project Management

From start to finish, our dedicated project managers and principal contractors will be in charge of site safety regulations and project requirements at all times while keeping our skilled labour in line with safety management at all times to avoid common mistakes that can occur. The dedicated project manager will also keep you informed and involved by using clear communication to ensure you get a smooth transition as much as possible.

Consequently, they will coordinate all aspects of the move, from the initial planning stages to the final installation, providing you with total peace of mind.

Custom Solutions

Every business is unique, and so are its relocation needs; for instance, you may only want 1 machine to be relocated or a whole plant dismantling plan to be padded out to just a straightforward facility relocation instead.

Consequently, whether you need to move heavy industrial equipment, sensitive laboratory instruments, or entire production lines, we can offer tailored solutions to meet your specific requirements.

After-Move Support

Our commitment to your successful relocation doesn’t end once your assets are in place.

We can also provide post-move support to address any concerns and ensure your complete satisfaction.
