Tri-Mach Goes RED

June 8, 2018

Today, Tri-Mach Group wears RED to show support and participate in RED Day.

What is RED Day?

St. Mary’s Red DAY fundraiser is an opportunity to come together as a community to raise awareness of heart disease as a serious health risk and how it can be prevented. According to the Regional Cardiac Centre, heart disease is the leading cause of death among Canadian women. Every year, heart disease claims the lives of roughly 25,000 women. This is more than the five most prevalent cancers combined. Tri-Mach Group is proud to be part of the RED Day community and is thrilled in the increased RED Day investment for the St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Centre.

Show your support today and wear RED for the heart of the women you love! #RedDayFriday

Canada’s CFIA and USA’s FDA Have Signed a Memorandum of Understanding

From: Food in Canada

College Park, Md. – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have agreed to collaborate.

The two agencies announced in a press release that they “have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that will facilitate the sharing of food safety information and data, and enable collaborative research projects.”

For a look at the MOU, click here.

Paul Mayers, vice-president of the Science Branch of the CFIA, says in the statement that the two countries already share a strong tie, which “allows us to work together to find innovative and cooperative ways to share information and data in respect to food safety. This collaborative approach to information sharing builds on our individual strengths while expanding our combined knowledge.”

The purpose of the MOU, which was signed at the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition campus, is to help both countries collaborate on food safety science.

The MOU is expected to give scientists on both sides of the border access to greater food safety information and data, which will bolster innovation and advance research.

Approached earlier this year by a successful commercial bakery, Tri-Mach Group Inc. was contracted to complete a detailed Request for Quotation that outlined proposed processing line changes. The RFQ that was completed included the generation of valuable CAD drawings of the existing 44,000 square foot plant, as well as a detailed description of each line and targeted production rates and requirements.

The client was so pleased with the accuracy of the report that they awarded the entire contract to Tri-Mach Group Inc. The contract included the decommissioning of two existing bread lines to make room for a new state-of-the-art snack foods line. Tri-Mach Group Inc., acting in a general contractor capacity, completed all the required improvements including new Stonhard flooring, new roof openings & closures, bake oven removal & installation, as well as all mechanical services and electrical utilities required for base building power and field wiring.

Working closely with the customer’s QA department as well as Production Supervisors, Sanitation Managers and Shipping department, the first phase of the project has been a complete success. Through detailed planning and cooperation from the customer, full production has been maintained throughout the renovations. Phase 2 of the project will see the complete installation of the state of the art snack line including over 200 feet of all new stainless steel / wire mesh transfer conveyors designed and supplied by Tri-Mach Group Inc.

Customer confidence, combined with the dedication of the our team, makes Tri-Mach Group Inc. the obvious choice as your One Stop Solution Provider for all your facility upgrade and integration needs.

Fresh-cut fruit has become a healthy alternative for meal time. When this twenty-five year old fruit processor recognized an increased demand for this ready to eat alternative they built several high-volume processing facilities in Canada and the US.

To meet the production targets, Tri-Mach Group Inc. designed, custom fabricated and installed two identical fresh-cut fruit production lines for two of their facilities in Canada. Each production line included an Ever-Kleen® Incline Conveyor transferring fresh-cut fruit into a stainless steel vibratory feeder and onto a new multi-head weigh scale mounted on a custom Stainless Steel Scale Support Frame with an integrated operator access platform. Through the scale the product is then conveyed again on an Ever-Kleen® Incline Conveyor into the vertical form fill bagger system and finally through the Tri-Mach Group supplied Metal Detector Conveyor with a compressed air blow-off reject system.

Throughout the project the Tri-Mach Group team worked collectively with the Customer and the other OEMs to ensure this fresh-cut fruit production line was designed & built correctly and integrated & installed on time.

Another successful turn-key solution by Tri-Mach Group Inc.
