A global leader in flatbread production with a long history of in-house expert bakers have recently expanded their product offering and as a core process technology to their production, required high quality In-Line Sifters for each new recipe line – in their state-of-the-art bakeries.
Kemutec, part of the Schenck Process Group, was initially contacted to tender for the project, along with two other companies, to determine which Sifter and company services would be best suited to their needs. With a strong reputation in the food processing industry for its ability to supply new equipment and spare parts, Kemutec was seen as a potential partner, who’s solutions are manufactured and engineered in the UK on a project-by-project basis through a knowledgeable and highly experienced in-house team.
As skilled bakers, the customer had an established process and needed an adaptable In-Line Sifter to work effectively with their existing equipment, in the new recipe lines. Kemutec demonstrated the versatility of its KEK sifting technology through its design of the body, which made it suitable for p
ressurised conveying, whilst also maintaining the ability for operators to access the sifter with ease.
Quality Design and Fast Production Secure Win
The customer advised that timescales played a significant factor in their final decision. With the expansion of product lines, it was imperative that they were able to obtain the new machinery and have it installed as quickly as possible to recoup their upfront costs. Kemutec’s well-oiled production line and ease of availability meant that delivery times were considerably shorter than the competitors. In addition to presenting the customer with customized In-Line Sifters which had clear additional benefits such as their hygienic design and quick screen change capabilities; Kemutec was consequently awarded the initial order.
Kemutec’s continuously high performing and reliable sifting technology, along with their unwavering support of the customer, resulted in the further supply of 12 machines. Kemutec values customer satisfaction and have been able to demonstrate this through supplying an extensive spare parts provision and comprehensive aftercare support.
