Pas Reform continues expansion in Asia
Press Release

Pas Reform continues to expand in Asia, with the announcement that Malaysia's PW Consolidated Bhd has signed an agreement for the supply of Smart incubators for a new state-of-the-art hatchery in Kedah, Malaysia.


The contract, signed by Mr. Dato'Siah Gim Eng and Mrs. Datin Law Hooi Lean of PW Consolidated with Henk Markhorst, Sales Director and Dr. Tan Ee Seng, Sales Director Asia, from Pas Reform Hatchery Technologies, also includes provision for the modernisation of the Malaysian company's existing hatchery in Malacca.


Both PW's hatcheries will be equipped with SmartSet setters, SmartHatch hatchers, and Pas Reform's SmartCenter hatchery information system.


"The short hatch window produced by Smart single-stage incubators was a highly compelling factor in selecting equipment for PW's new hatcheries", says Dr. Loh, PW's production manager.


A short hatch window reduces the time first hatchlings must wait to access feed and water, which would enhance growth, especially in a competitive environment.


Using the modular, single-stage incubators will allow the company to actively influence the duration of the hatch window and subsequent chick uniformity, livability and growth rate, Dr. Loh said.


PW Consolidated Bhd, formerly known as PinWee Group Bhd, is a fully integrated livestock operation.
