Heat and Control and Ishida are enhancing their collaboration with a view to offering full “end-to-end” processing and packaging solutions.

The two companies said their combined experience and expertise would present a more compelling offering to food manufacturers wanting a single-supplier solution to maximise efficiencies and throughput.

The pair specialise in different areas, Ishida in multihead weighers, as well as packing line solutions such as bagging, sealing, inspection, grading and quality control equipment, and Heat and Control in food processing, seasoning, conveying, packaging and inspection equipment systems.

“We have always enjoyed excellent co-operation with Heat and Control and have already worked together on various projects,” Ishida Europe MD Dave Tiso said. “The extension of this approach makes strong commercial sense in the many benefits it will offer to our customer base.”

Heat and Control president Tony Caridis said the strengthening of the partnership would allow teams to provide the added-value of a ‘one-stop’ solution.

“Building on our foundation of innovation and support, we're confident we can deliver enhanced value and a competitive edge to our customer partners at every step of their projects,” he said.
