What are your core products and services? What are you best known for providing?

Innovatec is a leading company specialized in innovative hatchery automation. Driven bij innovation and committed to quality and service Innovatec supplies product lines that help hatcheries realize their full potential in order to deliver high quality and vital chicks. It’s based on the Innovatec Total Concept. This proven key to success consists three pillars: product uniformity, excellent service and the support of a maintenance agreement, and results in the highest return on investment.

What developments or upgrades have you made to your core products and services in the last 12 months?

The CLEANchick™ in combination with the Exploder Removal System has been introduced as one complete unit. The combination of live embryo detection and directly removing exploders is Innovatec’s most innovative development for maximizing bio security in the hatchery. The candling process is based on non-contact detection of living embryos. With an unmatched accuracy and a high capacity, eggs are candled in a spilt second. Directly after candling, exploders and large dead embryos are removed by suction. By application of this contact-free concept, a virtually 100% cross contamination-fee product is assured.
