1966: Stork's first innovation milestone
06 Apr 2016
At first, the original product range of Wiericke was sold by Stork, among which the Gigant, Midget, Duromatic and ARS plucking systems.
In those days the successful automation of a poultry slaughterhouse depended completely on the quality and the efficiency of the plucker. That's why, as one of the first tasks after the take-over, Stork started developing new plucking equipment, and involved the poultry processors, among which Friki (Europe's largest export slaughterhouse), in this development.
The new, modular All Round plucker generation which resulted from this change in approach in 1966 can be seen as the first milestone in Stork's innovative poultry machinery history, which is exactly 50 years ago.
