Process engineering and construction, processes and technology

We have been able to apply our know-how in plant construction, process technology and process design for numerous customers with the most varied requirements. This has resulted in individually designed plants for companies that process liquids across all industries. Our customers use our systems and process technology for the production of liquids in a wide variety of projects as you see below:

New plant for mozzarella production

Glanbia Cheese and Leprino Foods

In the new mozzarella plant of the Glanbia Cheese and Leprino Foods group of companies in Portlaoise, Ireland, high standards apply to implementation, project management as well as a strict division into a high-care and low-care area.
