Leading Ecuadorian poultry group Incubadora Anhalzer has contracted Pas Reform to supply a comprehensive Smart incubation system for its latest expansion programme, which will bring the hatchery's production capacity up to 400,000 day old broilers per week.
The company has expanded rapidly since first starting to work with Pas Reform machines in 2003. That move was followed two years later by further expansion with the newest generation Smart incubation systems last year.
The company will expand its current hatchery operations with an additional six SmartSet™ 77 machines, four SmartHatch™ hatchers and a complete ventilation system for the current hatchery expansion.
Company President Pablo Anhalzer comments: "Working with Pas Reform for the last three years has been very satisfying. The company's planning and project management expertise is detailed and thorough - and the introduction of their new Smart Incubation system coincided well with our plans for still further expansion."
Incubadora Anhalzer has, says Mr. Anhalzer, conducted in depth studies on day old chick results not only in the hatchery but also in the broiler farms over the past three years, to find marked and consistent improvements in technical broiler performance results.
"Our own experience has shown us that Pas Reform's machines are highly durable - and by using this, the latest incubation technology, we have seen significant benefits in practice and results, which is all the more powerful when combined with operational reliability."
"Incubadora Anhalzer's decision to install Smart incubation systems in its third expansion programme with us in three years is a real boost and an important show of confidence for Pas Reform," says Mr. Bart Aangenendt, president of Pas Reform. "This latest contract is not only an indicator as to the quality of our equipment, but importantly it also speaks volumes for the quality of the cooperation and partnership that we have established with the people from Incubadora Anhalzer.
"Pas Reform is targeting ambitious, strategic growth for the coming years in the Latin American region, and we trust this latest expansion programme with Incubadora Anhalzer will serve to illustrate the benefits of partnering with Pas Reform, both in terms of the quality of the hatchery systems we manufacture, and in terms of our commitment to the region in the years to come".
