Güres Layer Hatchery Doubles Capacity with Petersime

31 December 2014

TURKEY - The Güres group, one of the leading layer hatcheries in Turkey, has recently decided to invest in new incubation equipment from Petersime, increasing its setting capacity with about 20 million eggs per year.

In the course of 2015, the hatchery will reach its full capacity of 40 million eggs. The choice was made for the latest available technology of Petersime, the BioStreamer™ setters and hatchers, all equipped with the Embryo-Response Incubation™ technology. The project further comprises HVAC for setter and hatcher room, egg transfer, egg room and chick room, as well as automation equipment like the Petersime Transferring Machine.

Board member, Mustafa Güres Jnr, said: “Petersime has an excellent reputation for layers. We have confidence in the technical support of Petersime and its distributor Poultech, and we are looking forward to start using the newest technologies like Synchro-Hatch™ and Eagle Eye™. These will enable us to further improve the quality of our products.”
