HatchTech and Kyowa Machinery have signed an exclusive agreement for the distribution of HatchTech products in the Japanese market.

The core products, such as setters, hatchers, chick storage rooms and HatchCare, stands out from the rest of the available equipment in the industry, because of the innovative concept of laminar airflow.

I see big opportunities for HatchTech here.’
