HatchTech Incubation Technology has once again been selected by China’s Huayu Agricultural Science and Technology Co. Ltd. to lead a major new hatchery development in China. HatchTech will construct and equip the new parent stock hatchery, which is being developed by Huayu in Handan, Hebei Province for the production of Hy-Line poultry layer genetics.
Due to start production in Q3 2020, the new hatchery will ensure a constant supply of Hy-Line poultry layer genetics with an estimated capacity of 10 million parent layers a year. The project will further boost Hy-Line’s approximate 60% market share of the total Chinese layer market, which produces more than 700 million birds annually. As well as the highest-quality incubation equipment, HatchTech will also supply cooling, heating and ventilation equipment to the hatchery, together with a full-service package of technical and biological support.
The new hatchery is the second collaboration between HatchTech and Huayu, following the successful outcome of a commercial layer hatchery project delivered by HatchTech. Opened in July 2018, the Handan-based layer hatchery is the world’s largest, with an annual production capacity of 60 million day-old chicks.
"The international layer hatchery we built together with HatchTech is delivering excellent results," said Mr. Wang Lianzeng, Chairman of Huayu Agricultural Science and Technology Co. Ltd. ‘Our customers demand superior chick quality and top-notch biosecurity, so we once again selected HatchTech to construct this important parent stock hatchery. Supported by an excellent team of technical and biological support from HatchTech’s offices in Beijing, we are confident that this new project will deliver success to all stakeholders."
"It is important that Hy-Line continues to develop its Chinese distribution operations," added Antonio Paraguassu, Managing Director at ILD/EW Group. "We strongly believe that, to support our market-leading position, we need to invest in the best possible production facilities, to provide our customers with the superior quality they demand and expect."
