Winkworth’s UTS Mixer Solution adds Scalability for Food Production Firms

For growing food production firms looking to add scalability to their business, Winkworth, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of industrial mixing and blending machinery, has launched an innovative new compact mixer based on a ribbon blender concept, known as the UTS.

Being the largest sector in the manufacturing industry, food production is an attractive area in which to start a business. Yet those who embark on their industrial journey face a multitude of obstacles to negotiate over – not least the complex process of securing funding to develop their food processing business. Manufacturing by its very nature involves investment and invariably expensive production equipment. Winkworth’s UTS however, provides growing businesses with an affordable mixer solution, working on the premise that low cost does not have to mean low quality.

Available in either a 100L or 240L capacity, and with short lead times, the competitively-priced UTS operates off a simple single-phase supply, providing a food-grade, hand-loading and hand-discharge, versatile solution. Easy to maintain and with low running costs, Winkworth has added a 5-year mechanical warranty as part of the deal, making the complete package an attractive option for those looking to upscale their output.

Commenting on the launch, Winkworth’s managing director, Grant Jamieson, said: “Whilst starting your own food production business is tough, we are confident this is an ideal solution for new food producers to add scalability to their growth. We’re offering low-cost machinery together with the unrivalled benefit of our manufacturing expertise, including our Mixing Test Centre and mixer hire if required. The addition of a 5-year warranty should be a key selling point here, as businesses look for added value in their investments. We want to provide developing food production companies with a scalable solution – so from producing products in an industrial kitchen to sizeable factory premises in the future, Winkworth can supply you with the right mixer or blender for the job and your budget.”
