Noble Foods

Innovative interchangeable modular conveyor system. To prevent unnecessary cost and wastage, Customate were challenged by Noble Foods to design conveyors which could be resized and repurposed after initial temporary use during a major factory refit.

About this project

Rising to the challenge required intense R&D from our design team, but results exceeded all expectations. Following successful deployment at Noble Foods, now Customate’s ground-breaking flexible, no-weld modular conveyor system comprises one of our most popular core products. Length and width can be changed in minutes, avoiding unnecessary cost and wastage.

Initial Brief

To prevent loss of production during a major refit, Noble Foods contracted Customate for a number of temporary conveyors, to be used for the eight weeks of the refit.


As a leading organic poultry producer with a reputation for welfare and sustainability, Noble Foods challenged us to come up with a design which would smoothly and simply allow the conveyors to be reused in a different part of the factory after the refit.


Taking inspiration from Lego, Customate’s engineers designed a highly flexible, no-weld modular conveyor system, whose length and width can be changed in minutes. Not only were Noble Foods delighted that following the refit their conveyors could be modified at little cost and system downtime, but following further development, we adopted this uniquely interchangeable modular design for all Customate conveyors as standard.
