Mar 10, 2023WECO and Multiscan Technologies form partnership
WECO and Multiscan Technologies (“Multiscan”) have entered into a partnership to support nut, fruit and vegetable packers and processors across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In these regions, the WECO sales and service organization is now selling, leasing and supporting Multiscan’s optical sorters and other inspection equipment including turnkey solutions. Both entities are members of the Duravant family of operating companies.
“Bringing two leading suppliers together in this way provides enormous value to both WECO and Multiscan customers,” said Don Douglas, president of WECO. “With the addition of Multiscan’s technology to WECO’s portfolio, we’re able to deliver even more sorting and pre-sorting solutions that address a broader range of turnkey line layouts and capacity requirements.”
Multiscan machine vision systems complement existing WECO sorting and moisture monitoring technologies for a variety of in-shell nut products to help customers manage product quality, improve yield, increase line throughput and reduce labor requirements. In addition, Multiscan’s industry-leading solutions for the avocado, cherry, citrus, olive, pomegranate and fresh tomato markets will now benefit from WECO’s leasing program and extensive service organization.
WECO’s customer service organization provides installation and start-up services, preventive maintenance, technology upgrades, and 24/7 emergency assistance. “Our program connects customers immediately to local service technicians with in-depth knowledge of their operation, not a remote call center,” said Douglas. “Just as important, technicians are always equipped to immediately fix issues on the spot. In a business where unplanned downtime is so costly, this is big differentiator.”
