US duck producer benefits from Pas Reform-NatureForm partnership





US duck producer Joe Jurgielewicz & Son Ltd. is expanding its single stage incubation facility with NatureForm Hatchery Technologies, a company set up by Pas Reform and NatureForm, at its Shartlesville, Pennsylvania location. 

Construction of the hatchery wing, an extension of the existing facility, is due for completion by July 2015 and will include new single stage Smart™ NF setters and Smart™ NF hatchers.

Originally founded on Long Island, New York, the company has been a leader in the production of Peking duck, a popular dish in the United States. The company also supplies whole ducks and a full range of duck products to retail outlets.

The company had studied several incubation system providers that could support a change-over to single stage incubation and be a partner for the long term. 

NatureForm Hatchery Technologies' President Steve Warren said, "The single stage technologies in our new Smart™ NF setters and hatchers are well proven for producing uniform, high quality day old ducklings that perform well on the farm and we are delighted to be continuing our association with Joe Jurgielewicz & Son."

In January last year, Pas Reform and NatureForm had formed US-based NatureForm Hatchery Technologies to deliver integrated solutions for North American hatcheries seeking expansion: /contents/01-20-2014/135e09eb-2ede-4e0c-b4a8-19e46790c761-a181.html
