A new food hub in Kenosha, Wis., includes a laboratory, testing center and service repair capabilities as well as system optimization personnel and equipment. The facility, developed by Alfa Laval, includes 

training space and is staffed by subject matter experts on topics from product sizing and maintenance to system application and design. The campus will primarily serve the hygienic process industry, which includes dairy, food, beverage, brewing, personal care, pharmaceutical, fats and oils, and protein processing.

At the facility, Alfa Laval customers can access “hygienic separation, process systems, heat transfer and fluid-handling expertise,” said John Piazza, senior vice president of the company's Food & Water Division.

investments were made in the design and construction of the facility to support Alfa Laval’s commitment to sustainability, the company noted. “We not only create sustainable solutions for our customers. We operate by these principles as well…. We are committed to continue the journey of decarbonization in all our operations in the U.S.,” said Ester Codina, president of Alfal Laval Inc. North America.
