Lantmännen opts for tailor-made bakery solutions
After 20 years with the same machines and unrelenting disruptions to production, Lantmännen Unibake decided to update some of its production equipment at its bakery in Copenhagen. The goal was to find a supplier who could customize the machines for Lantmännen's unique production line; they found the solution at Nimo-KG in Skåne, Sweden.
"Many machine manufacturers have a fixed range of lifting and tipping equipment that cannot be adapted or modified. This is where Nimo-KG is far ahead of its industry colleagues; they took a look at our production and came with proposals for adapting their machines to our process. They took care of the entire process from concept and design to installation," says Kenneth Staal, technical manager at Lantmännen Unibake.
Production is round-the-clock, seven days a week at Lantmännen Unibake’s bakery in the outskirts of Copenhagen. With the aim of increasing their production rate, they contacted Nimo-KG from Skåne, Sweden, which supplies tailor-made equipment for product handling to the food industry worldwide.
"Just like production companies in any industry, companies in the bakery industry have their own unique conditions and challenges, and therefore need unique solutions. Our challenge, which is the thing we find most rewarding, is to design solutions that ensure our customer's needs are met," says Anders Pålsson of Nimo-KG.
As technical manager at Lantmännen Unibake, Kenneth Staal has collaborated with many equipment suppliers. The reason they opted for Nimo-KG was not only its expertise in finding unique solutions for the bakery's existing production line, but also the high quality of their machines.
"Since Nimo-KG installed the three new lifting and tipping machines a year ago, we have had no downtime at all," said Kenneth Staal.
Lantmännen's bakery in Copenhagen will very likely enjoy the company of more lifting and tipping machines in the future.
“We are extremely satisfied with the equipment and its tiptop reliability. If we need to expand our equipment pool or replace machines in the future, we'll call Nimo-KG right away.”
Nimo-KG designs and manufactures machines for internal product handling. The company’s lifting and tipping equipment (widely known as the KG-lift) has turned Nimo-KG into a household name in the food industry over the years. Each year about 200 machines are delivered to customers worldwide. For more information please visit www.nimo-kg.se/en
