The hatchery, located in the state of Minas Gerais, in the rural area of Uberaba, is dedicated to supplying Aviagen’s customers in the Southeast and Midwest regions of the country with top-quality breeders. Royal Pas Reform is installing 14 SmartSetPro™ setters, 8 SmartHatchPro™ hatchers, 1 SmartHeat™ and 5 turning systems for the egg-storage area. When complete, the renewed hatchery will have a production capacity of 8.5 million breeders per year.
João Paulo Bernardes, Production Manager at Aviagen, says: “After the success of the GGP/GP hatchery, which we built in partnership with Royal Pas Reform in São Paulo state, we were convinced that Royal Pas Reform would be the best option for the Nova Ponte hatchery renovation. As well as hatchery equipment, we have been supported with high-quality service from skilled people at all levels, convincing us that Royal Pas Reform is the best option.”
Artur Schlick, Director of Pas Reform do Brasil, comments: “We at Royal Pas Reform are proud of being Aviagen’s partner for this important expansion project. I am sure that Aviagen customers will be very satisfied with the quality of the chicks that our SmartPro™ technology can deliver.”
