We can help you greatly reduce the costs of major capital projects

We understand how to develop a capital project in the most cost effective manor. Having worked for poultry processing equipment manufacturers for many years, we are adept at assessing the true benefits of proposed equipment and are skilled at introducing competition into the supply chain to facilitate handsome price savings and discounts. We fully evaluate every aspect of a project and don’t recommend automated systems unless they will be cost effective in your operation.

We don't just offer advice and walk away!

We want to help you over the longer term and build a strong business relationship with you. Once we have all decided on the best ways to move forward, we can help you with managing the implementation of change. We can look after the full project management including green field site development if required.
