Mead Johnson, Melbourne

Mead Johnson is a subsidiary of the British Multinational Consumer Goods company Reckitt Benckiser, headquartered in London. With more than 70 different products in 50 countries, Mead Johnson is recognized as a world leader in pediatric nutrition. The Enfamil range of infant formula is the best selling brand in the world.


The Mead Johnson facility in Victoria, Australia is a hygienic blending and repackaging facility which supplies a range of products to the domestic and Hong Kong markets. It is a typical clean facility with rooms running at a variety of air pressures to maximise containment and minimise the risk of product cross contamination. Mead Johnson needed all doors installing and commissioning during a scheduled annual shutdown period to ensure that manufacturing output was not affected.


As with any clean processing or packaging facility, hygiene and the ability to clean quickly and easily were key considerations. Mead Johnson selected Dortek hygienic GRP doors for their seamless, lightweight and easy clean nature. All doors and frames are individually manufactured to suit applications, with hardware factory installed ensuring that site installation time is kept to a minimum. Without needing to fix handles, locksets and hinges onsite, the time taken to complete installation is reduced significantly, meaning the first phase of the project was completed on time and well within the 5 day shutdown period available.
