Resource: Product Group Report: Remanufacture of industrial food processing equipment
Industrial food processing equipment is an extremely large sector including a diverse range of machinery to perform different tasks in the food industry.
Sunday, 19th August 2007
There is a large re-use sector that purchases either redundant machines or equipment from liquidations but remanufacture is only a small portion of the market. Both manufacture and remanufacture are labour intensive therefore the cost differential between new and remanufactured equipment is not attractive to the food processors. Standards need to be developed to encourage confidence in the industry. The remanufacture of packaging machines has been attempted and although largely unsuccessful it appears that this sector holds some potential.
