Span Tech Europe Offers State-of-the-art Conveying Solutions

Already a leader in the North American market, Span Tech is now offering its unique belts and conveying systems to food processors in Europe. Span Tech’s almost 40 years of experience and expertise extends from primary to secondary packaging, packed and unpacked products, trays and case handling from meat, dairy, frozen foods and specialty baking, up to fresh and convenience foods.

Span Tech conveyor systems are able to eliminate product damage while improving throughput and maximizing the production process, eliminating production break downs and the need for continuous maintenance. In addition to its well proven conveying technologies, Span Tech has also engineered unique solutions in transfer technology, accumulating, merging, dividing, inclining, vertical conveying, depositing, rejecting and reclaiming.

European Business

Having set up its European business in 2011, Span Tech is now well established in northern European, especially in Benelux, Scandinavia, France and Germany. “We are now approaching the UK and southern Europe where we already have several installations,” points out Enrico Berlenghi, EMEA Director of Span Tech. “From 2016, we intend to approach the Middle East from which we have received some interesting enquiries.”

SpanTech4July2015Span Tech Europe works exclusively via its partners that are OEMs and integrators. Its systems are currently in operation within many of the major food groups, including Nestlé, PepsiCo, Unilever, P&G, FSB, Conagra, Haribo, Delifrance, Santa Maria, McKey, Mondelez, Coca Cola and McCain.

“Span Tech Europe has grown every year by 30% since opening. We now have spare parts and service in Europe, and are currently investigating the start-up of a production facility in Europe as well,” says Enrico Berlenghi.

Tailored Approach

Key to Span Tech Europe’s success is that it tailors its systems to the precise needs of each customer. “Our engineers always start by adapting our systems to the specific requirements of the product(s), not the other way around,” he explains. “Span Tech Europe conveyors work flawlessly from day one, and they keep on working five to seven times longer than most of our competitors. Our systems require very little or no maintenance. Many of our clients often do not even recall that they have Span Tech Europe conveyors, as they perform exactly as they are supposed to.”

Another key benefit to users of Span Tech Europe conveyors is that cleaning is quite simple as the belt and sprockets are easily removable. Maintenance, when required, is similarly straightforward. The chain can be opened at any point with a standard screwdriver and the sprockets can be replaced without removing the drive shaft. The modular design allows for standardization of replacement parts.

“The industry is continuously changing, new products are constantly being developed, and we adapt to these new products and new product handling demands,” says Enrico Berlenghi. “The industry is paying more and more attention to maintenance costs, and this is why ‘once you go Span Tech you never go back’.”

SpanTech2Juy2015Continuous Innovation

Span Tech has a strong record of continuous innovation in order to meet the changing needs of food processors as they adapt to the demands of consumers.

“We differentiate from our competitors by continuously developing new solutions and customizations, and adapting our solutions to the product’s needs. The conveyors can be combined for near infinite possibilities, with multiple chain types available for even more variety. We develop completely customized systems based on the product requirements.”

For example, Span Tech’s latest development is an entirely new concept in sanitary/hygienic conveying systems, which will be launched later this year.

According to Enrico Berlenghi, the quality of Span Tech conveyors gives the company a distinct competitive edge in terms of performance and cost. “Our conveyors are more durable than competing conveyors. Large portions of original chain are still running on conveyors that have operated six days a week for years, even in areas with high levels of contaminants.” The EMEA Director of Span Tech concludes: “Our outstanding quality gives to our customers the most reliable solutions, and does so with the lowest cost of ownership.”
