Hiroshima, Japan; March 27, 2017 - Satake Corporation and Alapala announced today the rebirth of the Henry Simon range of flour milling equipment. From its inception in 1878, Henry Simon of Manchester, England has always been known as an innovator and a driving force that helped create the milling industry that we know today.
The new range of equipment captures the original pioneering spirit combined with the groundbreaking design and aesthetics resulting from the combined research and development from Japanese and European design hubs. The equipment will be built in the newly completed Alapala manufacturing complex that features the very latest robotic cutting, welding and assembly technology.
To celebrate the launch, the equipment will be released to the industry at the 121st Annual Conference and Expo of the International Association of Operative Millers (IAOM) at the Conference & Expo New Orleans Marriott and the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center April 10-14.
On display for the first time will be the Roller mill and Purifier. Both machines are the result of painstaking design partnership between Satake, Alapala and a world renowned industrial design and styling studio. The results are a stunning combination of technology, functionality and ergonomics.
This latest collaboration between Satake and Alapala follows the announcement in July 2015 when the strategic partnership was unveiled to provide the milling industry with a truly global technology partner. The partnership incorporates the sharing technology, sales capabilities and human resources for milling clients around the world. -------END-------
