Kampi introduces tub handling system
Icelandic shrimp factory, Kampi, has recently signed a contract with Skaginn 3X for a tub handling system.
The system is expected to be fully operational in February 2019 and is said to bring many benefits including increased factory automation and capacity as well as reducing the need for forklifts. It also provides better handling of raw material and tubs.
“Kampi’s operation has been very successful in recent months and we have seen a steady increase in production. It was therefore a great opportunity to invest in equipment at our facility,” said Albert Haraldsson, operations manager at Kampi in Ísafjörður.
“We are increasing our capacity and automation and purchasing a high-quality system from Skaginn 3x is an integral part of this process.”
Companies in Iceland's seafood industry are always looking for ways to achieve more efficiency, increase automation and improve handling of products, and that is where we at Skaginn 3X are leading the way," added Freysteinn Nonni Mánason, regional sales manager at Skaginn 3X.
Iceland has seen big changes in recent years. Shrimp processing, once a prominent part of the seafood industry, has declined and the number of shrimp factories now stands at just four.
