SF Engineering Launches First Industry Scrappage Incentive

SF Engineering Launches First Industry Scrappage Incentive

An innovative machinery scrappage incentive has been launched by SF Engineering supported by their strategic partner Marelec Food Technologies. Like Government-sponsored car scrappage schemes, SF Engineering are giving an allowance of £13,000 (€15,000) for old portion cutting machines against a new Marelec Portio.

SF Engineering say the scheme is being launched to encourage UK and Irish food manufacturers to trade in their old portion cutting equipment and get a discount off the price of a new high performance Marelec Portio. The Incentive offers customers free money for new technology to help boost their business and any make or model can be traded in against a new machine.

Developments in technology, regulation and concerns around labour requirements are putting growing pressure on food businesses.  Investment in production and capex are key drivers for growth because automation brings increased production output, improvements in product quality and reduction in waste.  It also helps solve skills and labour shortage, allowing the workforce to focus on areas where it would add more value.

The commercial landscape for food manufacturing is challenging and even though the industry contributes £28.2bn to the economy annually, there are no targeted measures by Government to support businesses.  However, the industry is rising to the challenge with innovative strategic partnerships and new funding models.

“We recognised that industrial food processing suffers from especially high downtimes which is a crucial factor in production output, product quality, reduction of waste and ultimately company profitability,” explains Seamus Farrell, CEO of SF. “Our Scrappage Incentive is in direct response to our customers’ most commonly reported pain points to provide support where it is most needed – that is out-dated and unserviceable legacy machinery.”

SF is an award-winning engineering company that designs and manufactures complex food processing and packaging solutions.  Their Scrappage Incentive was conceived to assist food businesses with their growth and expansion plans, leveraging the company’s industry knowledge and relationships with the best-in-class suppliers in terms of performance, ROI and reliability.

SF selected the Marelec Portio for the incentive due to its energy savings compared to competitors, low cost of ownership, low water usage and high yield and ROI. It is suited for fresh, boneless meat products, fish and poultry. Different product fixation systems are possible such as knife types, camera systems and belt type. The SF Scrappage Incentive scheme applies to companies in the UK and Ireland and will run until 31st July, subject to stock availability.  Any make or model is eligible.  For more information visit www.sfengineering.ie.
