“I appreciate we gave you a very tight time frame to get this work done, and I’m very happy that you were able to deliver.

“To all businesses looking for excellence,
We have been working with Thermaflo for many years, across projects large and small – some of which were critical to our success and ability to deliver to our customers.
When we made the move into plant-based yoghurt, we selected Thermaflo to design and build the plant.
Thermaflo took the data from our successful product trials and scaled the process up to a commercial level, effectively giving us a new line from the ground up.
The project was successfully delivered on time during the Covid-19 lockdown period, which added an additional degree of difficulty for Thermaflo to a novel, complex, and time-sensitive project.
Thermaflo has been a key factor in the success of Epicurean Dairy and The Collective. They have successfully completed well over two dozen projects with us – including major plant upgrades – on time and during challenging circumstances.
I highly recommend them to anyone.”
“Talking with Thermaflo they provided us with a proposal for a fully automated CIP kitchen that was designed to ensure the correct cleaning variables of time, temperature and chemical concentration would be delivered to our new plant at the correct velocities and pressures to ensure a successful cleaning regime for the new process.
Thermaflo have done an outstanding job on the project and with the increased capacity of this CIP kitchen, we will be able to start expanding the rest of our process. We always like working with Thermaflo and will happily recommend them to others. “
