As part of it's international expansion programme, Dutch Hatchery Technology company Pas Reform has appointed Mr. JanKees Sligcher as its distributor and representative in South Africa.
Mr. Sligcher, who has a degree in Intensive Animal Husbandry, worked in the Middle East before settling in South Africa over 20 years ago, where he has built substantial experience of climate control and poultry feeding systems in this marketplace. He is optimistic about Pas Reform's future in South Africa: 'I believe Pas Reform's Smart technology, combined with the support of dedicated Project Management and Hatchery Management Training Programmes from the Pas Reform Academy, offers an excellent platform for significant growth here.'
Mr. Bart Aangenendt, Pas Reform's President, comments: 'South Africa is an important growth market for Pas Reform - and although we have had a presence here for 30 years, we have refreshed our approach to this and other world markets since the introduction of our new Smart Hatchery Technology system.
'We will dedicate substantial time to South Africa,' he says, 'to support JanKees' activities with an ongoing recruitment and training programme for technicians, as well as delivering a programme of regular, follow-up visits by our hatchery specialists, to provide comprehensive assistance to our customers in making the transition from multi- to single-stage hatching operations.'
