“We needed a partner who could meet our exact requirements and provide us with the right mix of equipment for our flexible production. SF not only supplied us with tailor made conveyor solutions we needed to fit our existing equipment into the new space but also incorporated new machines and a full hygiene control system.”
Eoin Loughnane, Product Development Director, Loughnane’s
“We’ve got two production lines and SF Engineering have supplied us with one of the best tray sealers we’ve seen and a very accurate and efficient set of combination metal detectors and checkweighers. The sealer has given us more consistent seals than before. It has also increased our line speed allowing us to reduce our working time.
“We find the combined checkweigher and metal detectors to be very good; one, because they’ve got a small footprint and we haven’t got a very big factory and two, they tend to be very reliable. They give us good information about the weight and any metal contamination that might occur.
“SF’s after sales service is good, which is very important to us as we have very few engineering resources. You find out the real calibre of a supplier when things get tough, SF have worked with us well through some difficult situations and we respect them for that.”
Neil Houghton, General Manager of Mash Direct
“We’ve significantly reduced our clean time and labour in the washing process while securing the best hygiene possible for our multi-head weighers. The Jeros Washer reduces handling and has helped us minimize the risk of contamination after cleaning. We are very happy with the result the machine has given us. One of the advantages we like is that the washer reduces machine downtime,” says Brady. “This not only speeds up production output but also helps maintain our rigorous production schedule with less cost.”
Noel Brady, Production Director, C&D Foods
“We are very pleased with the performance of our new metal detectors,” says Forde. “They are in keeping with the rest of the high quality equipment that we have invested in and have performed wonderfully for our new range. We are confident that we are delivering a secure, high-quality product to the supermarket shelf.”
Michael Forde, Production Manager, Divilly’s
“We are committed to delivering quality products to our retail, foodservice, and food manufacturing customers. Based on the past performance of the Ishida multihead weigher we decided to install two more units for the fresh salad line. We have had an excellent working relationship with SF Engineering and the Ishida weighers have met the strict requirements we have for fresh produce packing.”
John McCann, Managing Director, Willowbrook Farms
“We got everything we needed from SF to sterilize and maintain top quality hygiene at our operation at the right price and most importantly of the right quality. The employee locker rooms also received an overhaul with new storage lockers installed as well as a new boot and apron rack. The custom work was excellent and the new equipment has made both hygiene and work conditions even better than before.”
Ger Kirwan. Owner, Goatsbridge Trout Farm
“For the past six years we have partnered with SF Engineering to help us choose the most efficient and productive packing and weighing equipment that fits our needs. We have installed top of the range continuous multi-head weighers which ensure productivity levels are at their maximum to fulfil the mass volumes of our orders. SF Engineering are a very innovative team which offers a high quality product, service and support. We hope to keep our long term partnership with SF into the future to keep Meade Potato Company a leading fresh produce supplier to the ever increasing demands of our customer base.”
Robert Devlin, General Manager, Meade Potato Company
“We are very happy with the ongoing improvements to our processing system. This is an extended team effort to create a streamlined, advanced processing system capable of evolving with our customer requirements. The process of replacing manual operations with advanced automated lines has allowed us to remain cost competitive in an extremely challenging business.”
John McLoughlin, Operations Manager, Hilton Food Group
