Cedrob S.A. was founded in 1991 in Ciechanów (Poland) and with around 8’000 employees is now Poland’s third-largest compound feed producer. Cedrob is an integrator and uses the largest part of its feed production for its own poultry and pig farms. In 2018, out of the 1’000’000 tons of feed from its own production, 800’000 tons were used for its own farms, and the remaining 300’000 tons were sold on the market.
Tomasz Walerowicz, who was involved in the Cedrob’s first ever deal with Bühler back in 2007, is acting Production Manager at the time. Bühler was asked to equip the feedstuffs center in the Polish town of Gumowo with an HYSYS pelleting system. This machine is used to produce animal feed in cube or pellet form, and combines the latest sanitation and compacting technology with the most up-to-date safety standards. An individually-selectable hygiene mode ensures optimum sanitation and product quality, and in combination with the dirt-resistant surfaces and cleaning automation ensures quick and easy cleaning and maintenance. “This and other advantages convinced us to equip our factory with HYSYS”, explains Tomasz Walerowicz. And the system has completely proven its worth: just one year later, Cedrob decided to purchase its second pelleting mill line from Bühler.
