Activate is the trusted lubrication solutions partner to over 60% of the UK’s top 50 food groups and the only lubrication specialist that is 100% focused on food safety. Our dedication and experience, coupled with our ongoing commitment to exceed industry standards, has enabled us to become a market-leader in food grade lubrication and our passion for best practice ensures that we continually promote dynamic improvement in our field.
The Activate team absolutely live and breathe food grade lubrication, in particular the precision application that optimises production line reliability. We continually innovate and are always exploring new ways of elevating food grade lubrication and food safety. As a family business with over 30 years’ experience, we hugely value the notion of ‘do it right first time’ – not only for our customers but for our own company processes too.
At Activate, we believe that lubrication is a strategic operational issue and not an ‘emergency’ engineering challenge. All our systems, products, services and knowledge are geared towards replacing lubrication-related losses with Lean gains for immediate, tangible business benefits.
Our reputation has been built on honesty, integrity and trust and we have developed a brand that has become synonymous with compliance. We have Quality and Health and Safety Management Systems that are BS: ISO9001 and BS OHSAS: 18001 accredited through Lloyds UKAS accreditation.
We believe in developing strong, long-lasting relationships with our customers, so our service comes with a Directors’ guarantee. Activate is often described as being ‘ahead of the game’; that’s because it is our chosen game - we will always provide you with the very best food grade lubricant solution for your specific needs.
We have unrivalled understanding of the requirements of audit bodies, including BRC, Global Standards for Food Safety, AIB, McDonalds SQMS and individual retailer and food manufacturing standards. Industrial oils used inadvertently within a food processing area will cause non-conformance issues for most of these standards.
Non-conformances, EPWs or Full Product Recalls have been known to destroy customer confidence and brand value overnight. Our systemised dispensing management approach, pre-audit inspections and free collection service of any non-conformance products ensure guaranteed NSF food safety and audit compliance.
