Scott Technology Awarded Contract to Design and Build New Zealand’s Most Advanced Lamb Processing System for Alliance Group
Automation and robotics solutions provider, Scott Technology Limited (NZX: SCT ), is pleased to announce the award of a large contract by Alliance Group to design and build an X-ray lamb boning system for Alliance’s Lorneville plant, located near Invercargill, as the co-operative seeks to improve the operational efficiency of its largest site.
The state of the art system will be designed to offer the benefits of improved product quality and increased yield in high value cuts. The system utilises advanced x-ray and vision technology to deliver a high accuracy of cutting, while also bringing significant developments in health and safety as robotics remove much of the heavy primal cutting activities.
Scott CEO John Kippenberger, said: “Alliance and Scott have a long standing relationship and Scott is again proud to partner with Alliance on this exciting and innovative project. This is a reflection of Scott’s 2020 – 2025 strategy, to build authentic customer relationships and focus on our core areas of expertise to deliver strong outcomes for our customers.”
Alliance CEO David Surveyor, said “The technology has already proven its value at our Dannevirke, Pukeuri and Smithfield plants, with safety, labour and yield efficiency improvements. This multi-million investment also underlines Alliance’s commitment to the Lorneville plant and to Southland.”
While Scott has designed and built similar systems off shore, this will be the first commercial forequarter system in New Zealand, making it the country’s most advanced lamb boning room. The project will be designed and built at Scott’s Dunedin facility which is the company’s centre of excellence for meat processing automation.
