Dairy Plant to Add Milk-Processing Equipment from SPX
SPX Corp.’s Flow Food and Beverage business has been awarded a second-phase process contract from Arla Foods, a global dairy company and co-operative owned by 13,500 dairy farmers across Europe.
Under the terms of the contract, SPX will design and install a new processing system for Arla Foods’ fresh milk dairy in Aylesbury, United Kingdom. Arla is the number-one dairy company in the UK and produces some of its best-known dairy brands.
The Aylesbury site officially opened in May of 2014. The new contract was awarded to SPX Corp.’s Flow Food and Beverage business as a second-phase project. Upon completion of this second phase, the site will be capable of producing more than 63,000 gal/hr (240,000 l/hr), or 264 million gal/yr. It follows the initial contract in 2011, where SPX provide a full-line, customized dairy processing system capable of producing more than 171 gal/yr (650 million l/yr) of fresh milk.
