Pas Reform to supply Cobb Vantress with incubation technology
Pas Reform do Brasil has successfully concluded negotiations with Cobb-Vantress Brasil for the replacement of incubation technologies at the GGP complex near Sao Paulo.
The new Smart incubation system will be supplied and installed by Pas Reform do Brasil at the broiler breeding company's GGP complex near Sao Paulo.
Located in the south central region of Brazil, in Guapiacu, Sao Paulo, Cobb-Vantress Brasil, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cobb-Vantress Inc., is well positioned to supply breeding stock for this, the largest market outside of the US, with the production of more than 20 million parents a year.
The breeding company's new installation will include 15 SmartSet setters and 6 SmartHatch hatchers, with the complete retrofit of pressure and humidity control systems in the hatcher rooms.
The new Smart hatchery will deliver tight controls through every aspect of great grandparent, grandparent and parent stock production, said the company.
Cobb Vantress Brazil's equipment will be manufactured, supplied, installed and serviced by Pas Reform do Brasil, to be operational by July 2009.
