Tixana’s Special Operations Manager, Angus McKellar oversees Tixana’s production line facility and together with the production team is introducing additional automation.
“It was evident that the production lines required further upgrading, to allow for greater efficiencies and to minimise WH&S risks,” said Angus.
“We already had an Enmin vibratory feeder which was still operating after many years, so naturally they were the first company I called to discuss our requirements. Enmin has been fantastic… from my first meeting with Anthony Gallaher, I knew we were in good hands,” Angus added.
At their initial meeting, Anthony recommended an Enmin spiral elevator which would lift and cool hot snacks simultaneously. “It’s been so successful and worked so well we’ve purchased three more,” Angus added.
Enmin are currently working with Tixana to integrate another of Enmin’s new Generate + modular seasoning systems. This will incorporate an innovative electrostatic system to coat snacks thereby increasing efficiencies.
Angus also went on to say, “At Tixana we like to support local industry – the fact that Enmin is a local business who design and manufacture their equipment right here in Australia is an important benefit. They’re able to see first-hand our existing production line set-up and use their extensive experience and design skills to provide solutions. They can also ensure their equipment will integrate seamlessly with other components already in place.”
“Enmin are only a quick phone call away to immediately respond to any query we may have or provide service support. Whilst lower cost equipment from overseas may initially seem an attractive proposition, we believe in supporting local industries,” Angus reiterated.
