Mekitec LTD, a global food X-ray manufacturer and supplier of X-ray inspection systems, today announces record sales in 2015 and its largest multiple unit orders.
IRVING, Texas, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The company’s established MEKI™ line is a range of space and cost-efficient X-ray inspection solutions designed to help food processors meet and exceed the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act, (FSMA). The X-ray units detect metal, glass, stone, bone and other dense contaminants that may inadvertently find their way into food products. The inspection systems automatically inspect and reject non-conforming products from the production line, thereby protecting the manufacturer and consumers.
Terry Woolford, Mekitec Group COO states, “2015 was another record year for Mekitec, with global expansion in the Americas and Far East with significant double digit growth in EMEA, (Europe Middle East and Africa). Sales revenue was up very significantly versus prior year and we shipped a record number of systems globally. We have seen a large increase in orders for more than 10 units at one time over the last year. This is attributable to customers wholly replacing existing metal detection technology with more capable X-ray systems.
Woolford continues, “The cost of X-ray inspection systems has reduced in recent times, thereby removing a significant barrier for end users to implement. The growth in X-ray inspection technology is driven by increasing food safety legislation including the FSMA and meeting the requirements of HACCP, (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points). Consumers are now much more aware and demand higher quality and safer food products. We are expecting this growth trend to continue and we are making investments into research and development and manufacturing capability to meet this demand”.
