21-year Celebration: Four New Haith Grading Lines for R S Cockerill
Marking a solid 21-year partnership with Haith, R S Cockerill placed its 42nd order acquiring four new grading lines worth GBP3m, part-funded by an EU Productivity Grant, for its site in Dunnington, near York.
According to a Haith press release, each of the new lines features a rota-tip box tippler, washer and destoner, polisher, and direct drive dryers.
For his Yorkshire potato grower and packer client, the British food processing machinery company also integrated Key Oculus optical sorters, Newtec 4015 weighers, GIC vertical form fill and seal packaging machines, and LAN robots at the end of the line.
“Our relationship dates back to the year 2000 when Martin Cockerill placed an order for our first grading line. Things have changed a lot in 21 years, with some amazing advances in technology, but one thing has remained the same, and that is, at the end of the day, people buy from people, and we still get along with everyone at Haith exceptionally well. They deliver what they say they will and are always open and honest, which we appreciate,” says Rufus Pilgrim, Managing Director at R S Cockerill. “We have an excellent relationship with the team at Haith, and the service and standard of the machines we receive from them are second to none.
Over the last 21 years, both Haith and Cockerill’s have grown considerably. “It is very satisfying to see that both companies have continued to grow in the years that we have worked together,” says Duane Hill, Sales Director for Haith. “We are very grateful to Martin Cockerill’s continued loyalty to Haith, and we like to think that our machines have played a part in their continued success.”
