Groupe Kherbouche is to develop a new turnkey GP hatchery project in Algeria, with C-lines and Pas Reform Hatchery Technologies collaborating on the prestigious new project that has been approved by Aviagen.
A leading Algerian feed manufacturer, Groupe Kherbouche has secured the GP licence for their new Arbor Acres Project, to include Grand Parent farms and the completion of a new Grand Parent Hatchery in Tlemcen, Algeria.
The new GP hatchery is a turnkey project, which will be constructed and fully installed by a future-focused consortium. C-lines will provide housing solutions, establishing the hatchery building, including panelled structure, drainage, doors, internal walls and electrical supplies. Pas Reform Hatchery Technologies will supply a full suite of Smart incubation, including SmartSet™ Setters and Smarthatch™ hatchers and a complete hatchery ventilation system with airhandling units, humidity controls and pressure controls.
Mr. Kherbouche, director and owner of Groupe Kherbouche comments, “The building of this prestigious new Grand Parent project is a logical next step in our development in the Algerian poultry sector. The Arbor Acres breed is well suited to the Algerian market, it has gained widespread acceptance here.
“In planning our new GP expansion, we have looked for partners who bring proven track record and experience in managing projects of this type with new, innovative products. For us, Pas Reform and C-lines meet these criteria very well.
Mr Bouke Hamminga, director international sales and business development at Pas Reform, says this type of collaboration signals a bold and welcome approach. “[Pas Reform] has found C-lines to be an excellent partner,” he says, “ the spirit of the collaboration is one of absolute transparency and cooperation - and that is already evident in the work being undertaken byour engineering departments, who are working extremely well together.”
Mr. Jérémie Choisseau, owner of C-lines, concludes: “We have long been looking for a partner in hatchery construction and have found Pas Reform to be very professional and experienced. This is an exciting new step for both our companies.”
