METALQUIMIA closed agreements with the global meat sector leaders
In the first half of 2014, METALQUIMIA closed an agreement with the Chinese food group WH Group (formerly Shuanghui International / Luohe Shuanghui Imp and Exp) for supplying one of the most modern processing plants for cooked meat products in the world. The plant, located in Shanghai, has a production capacity of 100 tons of product a day and will be fully operational by the end of 2016.
At the beginning of 2016, METALQUIMIA was also chosen as one of the main suppliers of the processing lines at the new factory of Campofrio Food Group in Burgos (Spain). The new CFG plant will incorporate the latest technologies of automation and intelligence for the manufacture of cooked whole-muscle meat products, thus becoming one of the processing leaders of Southern Europe.
In addition to the above-mentioned projects, METALQUIMIA has also supplied the fully automatic macro-facilities of ELPOZO (Spain), CASA TARRADELLAS (Spain), AURORA (Brazil), CASTROLANDA (Brazil), FRIMESA (Brazil) or SEARA-JBS (Brazil), among many others… all of them pioneer plants that are operating with the most advanced meat-processing equipment and technology worldwide. As well as the integral solutions and turnkey plants, these global leaders have also given very high ratings to METALQUIMIA’s technological assistance, with an option that brings together cutting-edge technology, the highest degree of automation and technological know-how, guaranteeing top quality of the finished meat product in the global market.
According to Josep Lagares, CEO of Metalquimia: "Being awarded these mega-projects consolidates our reputation as preferred suppliers of large multinationals for the installation of fully automatic plants for the manufacture of meat products. There is no other supplier in the world who can offer an automatic turnkey plant with all the machinery required for the entire process, from preparation of the meat to final packaging, and which includes, in the same package, robotics, artificial intelligence and the meat-processing technologies of the future.”
