Fortune Taiwan expanding hatcheries
Company investing in grandparent stock, parent stock hatcheries
Fortune Taiwan, a distributor of Lohmann and Ross breeds, is embarking on a major development phase that will consolidate its position as a leading innovator and pioneer in Taiwan’s poultry sector.
Backed by founder and President, Chuang An-Hung, the company is investing in SmartPro single-stage incubation from Pas Reform, to support the expansion of its grandparent stock and parent stock hatcheries.
With plans to set the first hatching eggs in September 2016, the new installation includes 21 SmartSetPro setters with corresponding SmartHatchPro hatchers, both from Pas Reform, to deliver 25,000 broiler parent stock chicks and 50,000 commercial layer chicks at the company’s hatcheries each week.
Pas Reform’s single source, ‘total solution’ for Fortune Taiwan also includes ventilation and climate control, with hatchery automation systems such as candling, transfer and setter trays as well as hatcher basket washing systems.
Fortune Taiwan Director Sutthi Chuang, noted the rapid changes that have been occurring in Taiwan’s poultry industry in recent years, as he commented on the new partnership: “Driving innovation and standards for commercial poultry production in Taiwan is a firm focus for us, but also as a model of information and knowledge exchange, to support and protect the long-term future of poultry in Taiwan.
“We are excited to be starting the next phase of our development with Pas Reform. As a company that can support our people not only with the latest innovations but also with training and specialist knowledge, we believe we can build a great partnership.”
Tan Ee Seng, sales director of Pas Reform Asia, concludes, “The experience and bold leadership of Fortune Taiwan’s senior team have created and grown a thriving and successful business, founded on quality at every level of their operations.
“It is a privilege to work on this project, which will be the first for Pas Reform in Taiwan and an outstanding debut for our new agent here, Chang Jhen Corporation, which has supported its development from the start. Together, we look forward to supporting Fortune Taiwan’s ambitions for their own future as well as that of Taiwan’s growing poultry industry.”
