After the introduction of the patented gravimetric dissolver, type Ecograv, at interpack 2011, the system continues to generate new and important business for Chocotec GmbH. In fact business has grown to the extent that the company has added an additional 3,000 sq. meters (10,000 sq. ft.) of production capacity to its factory in Wernigerode Germany. The building was completed in early December, prompting Chocotech to hold its annual Christmas party for all of its employees there, including honored guests Thomas and Lou Sollich, owners of Chocotech’s parent company, Sollich.
In addition to the ECOGRAV system, Chocotec is also a key supplier of turnkey kitchen systems for the following: hard candy, SUCROMASTER; fondant, MICRON; chewy CHEWMASTER; caramel, SUCROFILM / CARAFLEX; jellies, JELLYMASTER / JELLYMIX; aerated products, TORNADO; and much more.
For customer trials, Chocotech has a state-of-the-art laboratory in Wernigerode, which houses the complete scope of the above-mentioned kitchen systems for capacities up to and beyond 1,000 kg/hr.
For recipe development, the laboratory also houses the Princess range of cookers. The lab is run by experienced process engineers who have gained their experience and knowledge not only in the classroom, but also from commissioning confectionery lines for customers all across the globe.
