WECO is excited to announce its partnership with Azcaval Packaging Engineering of Seville, Spain, to provide the blueberry industry with state-of-the-art weigh and fill machines. WECO will sell and service the new weigh-fill machines with its existing and expanded service team out of its eight U.S. service facilities strategically placed close to each berry growing region.
"WECO will provide the same level of service our customers have come to expect," said Eric Horner, VP of WECO. "Our customers have asked us for the last few seasons to provide an end-to-end sorting and packing solution and by adding the Azcaval w/f machine, we are one step closer. The WECO engineering team will continue to innovate and develop our optical sorting lines. The service team will support our customers at each step of the process.”
Weigh and fill machine for blueberry industry.
Azcaval is a five-year-old engineering and manufacturing company. "Our weigh fill machines coupled with an innovative vacuum de-nester and easy to operate software will provide the speed, accuracy and reliability blueberry packers need during the harvest,” said Enrique Azcarate, Azcaval president and founder. “With the push of a button, the machine automatically adjusts for pre-programmed container sizes minimizing change over time. Our engineering team has gone to great lengths to provide the best weigh fill machine available and we will never stop innovating."
"After meeting Enrique and discussing the opportunity and his experience, it was an easy decision,” said Horner. “Enrique has the passion one looks for in a partnership. Azcaval already has experience packing blueberries working with our South American partner, Pack-Man LTDA. President Bernardo Moltedo and his sales team officially partnered earlier this year and introduced the next generation of the lowest drop w/f machine in Chile and Peru with great success.”
