ARGENTINA - Pas Reform has further expanded operations in Argentina, with the appointment of Mr. Carlos Pereira and Mr. Jose Solano of Forklima S.A., in an Agreement that further strengthens the Dutch hatchery technology company’s position as a key player in the Latin American hatchery sector.

Forklima will represent Pas Reform’s full range of products, including Smart incubators, hatchery automation systems and hatchery climate control systems – with the full backing of Pas Reform’s Project Management and Training facilities, the Pas Reform Academy, in the Netherlands. As a major supplier of poultry equipment in Argentina, Forklima’s blend of technical engineers and experienced poultry specialists represents an excellent fit with Pas Reform’s ethos and ambitions in the region.

‘We are very proud to include Forklima in our network of representatives,’ says Bart Aangenendt, president of the Dutch company. ‘Pas Reform has developed a string of new partnerships in Latin America in recent months - and with the addition of the Forklima team to our network in Argentina, we now have representation in every Latin American country’.

This, explains Aangenendt, is of paramount importance to Pas Reform’s mid-to-long term strategies, as poultry production in Argentina is poised for rapid growth, due to highly competitive production costs. Forklima’s Mr. Jose Solano says: ‘Over the past few years, Pas Reform has emerged as the leading innovator in incubation systems, with an approach focused on chick uniformity. ‘We are delighted to be joining what is clearly an experienced, dynamic and ambitious team, with a complete understanding of the needs of the poultry industry at every level.’

Mr. Carlos Pereira concludes: ‘This new Agreement is a natural fit with Forklima’s experience and activities in poultry equipment – and one that places world-class hatchery technologies in our portfolio. ‘The success of Smart in delivering improved hatchability, uniformity and post-hatch performance is already opening up many new opportunities for Forklima. We don’t expect it to be long before we repeat the successes being achieved with the largest broiler integrators in Europe, Asia and Latin America, right here in Argentina’.
