Compac on Track for Record Year
Technology innovation company Compac Sorting Equipment is on track for a
record year, with a forecast of $45m in global sales to June 07.
This marks an 80% increase over the past two years and is a result of
Compac's long term focus on technology.
Compac recently was awarded a Technology Commendation for its innovative
technology, used to improve efficiencies in fruit and vegetable packing.
Compac designs and manufactures high speed sorting, grading and packing
systems for fruit and vegetables and its technology is regarded as a world
leader. It sorts by weight, size, blemish, shape, colour and density as
well as for sugar levels or internal defect.
Bob Shaw, Compac General Manager, said local sales have been significant
this year particularly with the growth and uptake of technology in the
kiwifruit industry.
Mr Shaw says growth is also coming through the company's sustained effort
into expanding its markets in North and South America as well as through
partnerships in Europe and Asia.
Compac operates in over 22 countries, with over 100 staff in New Zealand and
a similar number globally.
