We build equipment to keep your processes clean

Hygiene is essential in dairy production. Its importance is underlined by the increasing levels of food safety regulations and the need of companies to protect their brand reputation. As a commitment to our customers, we have dedicated a complete manufacturing location to the production of stainless steel equipment in Whitewater, Wisconsin. The plant is completely free of carbon steel manufacturing – eliminating the potential for corrosion and cross-contamination.

Stainless steel is the standard

The US Dairy 3-A sanitary standard and European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines require food producers to use equipment that protects food from contamination, can be mechanically cleaned on all surfaces, and can be dismantled easily for manual cleaning or inspection. Stainless steel, because of its corrosion resistance and durability compared with most other materials available, is by far the preferred material for food equipment. We manufacture a full line of stainless steel hygienic equipment.
