Dutch hatchery technology company Pas Reform continues to expand international with a series of new contracts in Algeria. Typically a relatively fragmented market with many small producers and hatcheries, the tendency in Algeria has been to consolidate while developing grandparents hatcheries to fuel growth, said Pas Reform's representative Bob de Rycke.
"Pas Reform has seriously invested in this new market, to make a strong and enduring commitment to the future of the hatchery sector here. These new contracts and installations represent a very exciting time for us — a true accomplishment, and we very much look forward to extending the same, continuing high levels of service and support for our customers in North Africa in the future," said de Rycke.
Pas Reform's new contracts include:
Lounigrain Import-Export : Khaled Lounis, CEO, placed the first SmartSetPro setters and SmartHatchPro hatchers to evaluate the machines in terms of chick quality, hatchability and ease of operation. Lounis says he has been impressed with hatch results in terms of hatch of fertile percentages and resulting day old pullet quality.
Eurl El Rabie Engraissement de Volailles : Headed and lead by Saleh Rabiethe, the company produces Lohmann layers. Smart single stage technologies will expand current weekly production capacity from 88,000 day old female pullets per week to a weekly capacity of around 130,000.
