Gainco becomes U.S. distributor for Viking Packaging, Anritsu x-ray systems
Gainco Inc. announced an agreement with Viking Masek Global Packaging Technologies, in which Gainco has been named the exclusive authorized distributor and reseller of Viking vertical form-fill-seal packaging machinery and systems to the poultry processing industry in the U.S.
An example of Viking equipment that is ideally suited for the poultry processing environment is the VFFS ES-400 model. This ultra-sanitary VFFS unit withstands harsh chemical washdown procedures and is ideal for bagging fresh and frozen poultry products. Its open, easy-access design features a full stainless steel angled frame and servo-drive actuation. It operates at speeds up to 60 cycles per minute, while accommodating all popular bag styles such as flat-bottom, gusseted, Euroslot/hole punch and pillow styles.
Don Esch, president of Gainco stated, “We’re pleased to have been named the exclusive authorized distributor to the poultry processing industry in America. The Viking brand is well-respected in the packaging field – particularly the ES, Velocity and other machines that are highly suited to poultry applications. The Viking line is a fine fit with Gainco’s own equipment, so we can offer better system solutions as a result.”
Additionally, Gainco has been named the exclusive authorized distributor and reseller of Anritsu-brand HD x-ray inspection systems, checkweighers, combination systems and related quality control software to the poultry processing industry in the U.S. Anritsu is one of the most established equipment brands in the x-ray detection field. The company’s roots date back more than 40 years, and the first Anritsu x-ray systems were introduced in 2000. Since then, more than 7,000 units have been installed worldwide, even as the product line has continually evolved.
