A deeper understanding of Marel and its future vision

The ambitious Capital Markets Day agenda consisted of two sets of presentations and breakout sessions that included a factory tour, a live demonstration of further processing equipment and a virtual reality experience of how Marel designs and tests new solutions prior to launch.

The day kicked-off with presentations from Marel’s leadership team – Árni Oddur Thórdarson CEO, Linda Jónsdóttir CFO and Árni Sigurdsson EVP of Strategy and Development. Together, they provided insights into how Marel has become a leading global provider of advanced food processing equipment, software and services.

In addition to becoming a top performer in the sector in terms of earnings growth, profitability and cash generation. The speakers also emphasized how this innovation-driven organization is strategically positioned to capitalize on favorable long-term macro-economic trends.  

The second set of presentations focused on Marel’s business operations. In particular, guests learned how we invest 6% of revenues in innovation in partnership with our customers, how we optimize our manufacturing platform, and how the global sales and service network supports our integrated approach to the three industries of poultry, meat and fish.

Their emphasis was not least on how our commitment to innovation, together with the Innova software, can help maximize customers’ processing potential and product yield. Inspiring and insightful presentations by Ulrika Lindberg, EVP of Service, David Wilson, EVP of Marel Meat, and Roger Claessens, Manager of Research and Development in Marel Poultry, showed how this works in action.

The demo center at Boxmeer is one of Marel’s four dedicated exhibition spaces where guests can experience a live demonstration of the latest technology and equipment used across all three industries. In addition to the over 40 trade shows and exhibitions Marel takes part in, we host hundreds of customer demonstrations and training sessions at our demo centers in the Netherlands, Denmark, and the US.

Using virtual reality to reduce time to design, test and develop new products

At the third break-out session, guests had the opportunity to step into the future with Marel and visit high-tech, ultramodern fish processing plants in action through virtual reality. Marel is increasingly using virtual reality to design and test new solutions before they are assembled and delivered to our customers. This allows for more rapid prototyping and speeds up the pace of innovation and assembly.
