A perfect start for Japans first HatchTech Hatchery at Fukuda Breeders
Fukuda Breeders, an absolute leader in the Japanese poultry industry, recently started their new turn-key HatchTech hatchery in Okayama City, South Japan. The hatchery is equipped with a full range of incubation solutions, including the HatchTech MicroClimer Setters and Hatchers, a HatchTech Chick Storage Room and HVAC, and has the capacity to incubate 720.000 eggs/week.
The travel restrictions, a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, created an extra challenge for the project teams of Fukuda Breeders and HatchTech. Thanks to the great efforts of the project- and installation team and an unlimited determination and enthusiasm, they were able to successfully finalize the project. In October, when the Japanese borders opened again, HatchTech’s Installation Managers landed in Japan and started their 14-day quarantine. After that, a successful on-site commission was completed.
Mr. Yamagami, President of Fukuda Breeders: “I am incredibly proud and happy to start my hatchery. The demand for Japanese local chicken is currently very strong due to the people staying home and we as Fukuda will serve the industry by supplying the maximum quality day old chicks. After seeing the excellent results of our first hatches, I am 100% convinced it was the right choice to choose for HatchTech”.
Starting from the first set, HatchTech Hatchery Coach Mr. Marco is present in Japan. For several weeks, he supports the local team and secures a smooth start up and a full transfer of knowledge. This multiple week onsite support, helps the team to work with confidence and pleasure with HT’s user-friendly machines, securing maximum hatching results and perfect quality day old chicks.
