Gainco Distributes Viking Masek Equipment

6 January 2012, at 12:37am

US - Gainco, a manufacturer of yield management, packing and distribution systems for meat and poultry processors, has reached an agreement with Viking Masek Global Packaging Technologies, in which Gainco has been named the exclusive authorised distributor and reseller of Viking vertical form-fill-seal packaging machinery and systems to the poultry processing industry in the US.

The agreement became effective on 1 November 2011.

Viking is one of the world’s best-established brands in the VFFS (vertical form-fill-seal) field.

An example of Viking equipment that is ideally suited for the poultry processing environment is the VFFS ES-400 model. This ultra-sanitary VFFS unit easily withstands the harshest chemical washdown procedures. This unit is perfect for bagging fresh and frozen poultry products.

Don Esch, president of Gainco said: “We’re pleased to have been named the exclusive authorised distributor to the poultry processing industry in America. The Viking brand is well respected in the packaging field – particularly the ES, Velocity and other machines that are highly suited to poultry applications. The Viking line is a fine fit with Gainco’s own equipment, so we can offer better system solutions as a result.”

Viking and Gainco products will be on joint display at the International Poultry Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, on 24 to 26 January at Booth 4859.

Gainco is a subsidiary of Bettcher Industries, Inc.
