Asian success – based on

Chinese manufacturing

and service

The strong history of Andritz

production in Foshan, China

The Andritz Group, with its headquarters

in Graz, Austria, is a multibillion-eurogroup

dedicated to supplying equipment

and services to a wide range of

processing industries worldwide.

The Andritz production in China started

more than 12 years ago with a jointventure

company in Foshan, Guangdong.

In 2002 Andritz Technologies, Foshan,

Guangdong, was established as a

company 100% owned by Andritz,

engaged in manufacturing and selling

high-quality products in support of

multiple Andritz divisions.

Since then the company has grown

dramatically in China, with three

production sites in the Guangdong

province alone and close to 600

employees today. Andritz Technologies

provides state-of-the-art production of

competitive, high-quality products and

services for all Andritz Group divisions on

the Chinese and Asian markets.

It is within this dynamic production

environment that Andritz Sprout in 2006

established production facilities to

comply with the Asian needs in the feed

and biofuel business of Andritz Sprout

by means of equipment made in China

according to its global designs and quality

standards and matching local market

needs.


Andritz Sprout ramps up

its production centre in

Foshan, China

Extruders and conditioners in Andritz Sprout’s

manufacturing plant in Foshan, Guangdong

Today a select range of Andritz Sprout

products, such as extruders, conditioners,

pellet mills and controls are produced in

China.

Based on the successful initial

establishment in China, Andritz Sprout is

in process of establishing additional new

workshops in Foshan, China, in order

to provide the growing Asian market

with an increased range of quality feed

and biofuel products as well as the

corresponding service support and knowhow.

The machine program will be increased

by a series of additional products from the

Andritz Sprout global range of products to

supplement both pelleting and extrusion

lines. The products will be designed

to meet the requirements of the Asian

market.

MARCH 2008

The Andritz Sprout activities in China are

managed by Mr. Richard Hickey, who

after gaining 15 years of experience

in the Asian market, is now heading

the Andritz Sprout expansion plans for

Chinese manufacturing and the enforced

market coverage for the region. In support

of the enforced sales and marketing in

Asia, Andritz Sprout has additionally

engaged Mr. Bjarne Them Jeppesen,

who will support customers, agents and

the Andritz Sprout regional sales

and service offices in the Asian

countries in cooperation with

Richard Hickey.

Further to its facilities in Foshan,

Guangdong province, Andritz

Sprout is operating from its office in

Shanghai, China headed by Mr. Xu

Zheng.

Complete solutions

for every pelleting and

extrusion need

Today’s high demands for cost-efficient, quality and nutritionally

high-performance feeds make it obvious that producing quality feeds

requires a high level of specialized processing technology.

Andritz Sprout is a unique company with

the ability to manufacture and supply each

and every machine in the feed production

line. With an intricate knowledge of each

key process, we can supply a compatible

and homogeneous solution from raw

material intake to finished feed delivery.

The Andritz Sprout concept

Our concept is simple and effective.

We strive to be a “one-stop” all-round

supplier for all animal feed or biofuel

pelleting industries as well as aquatic

feed and petfood extrusion plants. Our

packages are tailor-made to suit specific

requirements, whether it be the supply of

individual process machines, complete

processing lines or spare parts and

service availability.

Project design and management

Andritz Sprout’s experience ensures

easy-to-operate plants and systems with

short implementation time and excellent

performance. Through outstanding

performance of key-process technologies

and planning-in engineering capabilities,

Andritz Sprout has become a leading

supplier of production equipment and

systems to the feed and biofuel industries.

Experienced project managers and

experts from specialized functions ensure

that the expected performance will be

achieved in any pelleting or extrusion

plant.

MARCH 2008

Over 20 pelleting and

extrusion lines in operation

today in Vietnam

In recent years the Vietnamese

aquacultural industry has been growing

rapidly. Vietnam has become a major

exporter of quality fish products. The

Mekon Delta region and southern

provinces together with the area around

the Red River in the north lend themselves

well to cultivating shrimp, catfish and,

more recently, tilapia. With the current

large investments by international and

local entrepreneurs, the trend is toward

integrated large-scale operations,

some with output figures from individual

companies between 0.5 and 1.0 mio. tons

of fish per year. In 2008 the export of fish

products from Vietnam is expected to

reach 1.25 billion USD, i.e. 25% higher

than in 2007.

Andritz Sprout entered the Vietnamese

market some eight years ago. With more

than 20 extrusion and pelleting lines sold

on this market, Andritz Sprout recently

decided to establish its own sales and

service office in Ho Chi Minh City.

New office in Vietnam

The new Andritz Sprout office in Ho

Chi Minh is managed by Mr. Le Quay

Ninh, who has more than 20 years of

experience in the feed industry. Mr. Ninh

shares the office with our Vietnamese

service engineer, Mr. Hung, who has been

operating and servicing Andritz Sprout

equipment in Vietnam for more than six

years.

Andritz Sprout office

in Australia

The Andritz Sprout office “down under”

is located in Melbourne and serves the

Australian and New Zealand markets.

The team consists of general manager,

Mr. Mark Spence, sales Mr. John Sich,

after-sales and service, Mr. Laif Walde,

and order handling, telephonic parts

sales, Mr. Cameron. The Australian office

has a long history dating close to 40

years back. At that time a wide range of

products for the feed industry was made

under the Jaybee and Sprout Waldron

names. Today a number of specialized

products meeting local market demands

are still made in Australia. However, today

the major part of the products is based

on Andritz Sprout European and USA

products. The Andritz Sprout service team

in Australia also supports Asian markets

with professional service carried out by a

well-trained staff.

Experienced and service-minded

Asian agents close to our

customers

For markets in Asia with no Andritz Sprout

offices, Andritz Sprout sales and after

sales service is handled by agents and

distributors with very strong experience

and history in the market place.

examples are:


The formula for highcapacity

lines: 1 + 1 = 1

In today’s world of increasing costs of

feed ingredients, energy and labour, feed

producers strive to find cost-reducing

ways. The advantages of economy of

scale in terms of high-capacity lines in

feed production were first discovered by

American integrated meat groups with their

own feed mills, and were later implemented

by comparable feed millers in South

America and Western and Eastern Europe.

The high-capacity lines are now making

Asian feed mills even more successful.

The production lines, particularly those at

the larger integrated poultry and hog feed

producers, have grown from 10-40 TPH and

up to 70-100 TPH.

Reduced capital investment, using

one large production line to do the job

instead of two or three smaller lines,

will mean a relatively small footprint

for the production tower.

Reduced numbers of transport

elements.

Reduced installation costs, less

equipment cables and piping to

install.

Reduced labour costs, number of

operators required for one line with a

high level of automation.

Reduced maintenance costs, less

machines to maintain.

MARCH 2008

Advantages of high-capacity lines:

The largest producer of feeds in Asia, CPF

Thailand, leads the way with their stateof-the-art

pelleting plant at Paktongchai.

The mill has two pelleting lines, type

Andritz Sprout PM1219, mounted with

expander, type Fex42, for broiler feed

production. Each line has a capacity

approaching 100TPH of quality feeds. The

plant is furthermore equipped with one

Andritz Sprout PM919 pelleting line for

specialized feeds. With an output of over

1.0 million tons per year, the plant has

been designed to meet the most stringent

Reduced energy costs, less motors

The size of extrusion lines

are growing too

A similar trend towards larger production

lines is seen in the petfood and aquatic

feed industry. It is not that long ago that

the norm for production lines in the aquatic

feed industry was 1-2 TPH. Today the

majority of plants are installing 6-10 TPH

lines, and enquiries now are poised at

20 TPH. Andritz Sprout offers a full range

of extrusion and drying technologies up

to 25 TPH, which has successfully proven

the advantages of high-capacity extrusion

lines in aquatic feed as well as petfood

industries.
