Meat processing equipment company CFS in the Netherlands has announced that it will stop producing machines at a Danish plant near the town of Slagelse and transfer these activities to its Dutch factories by May 2011.

Sales and service functions for the Nordic countries, however, will remain based in Denmark.


The planned production move is part of a global efficiency improvement process, said CFS, in which the company will unite all its substantial resources to improve the overall efficiency, flexibility and exchange of know-how. This should enable the necessary investments in R&D and productivity improvements, securing the long-term viability of the company.

Recently, CFS launched a website to give customers an overview of machines available at short notice. The stock listed includes secondhand, ex-demonstration and ex-rental equipment as well as some new machines.
