A leader in tray denesting and handling systems, Intech has announced that it has changed its name to Qupaq. This follows the consolidation of the Intech and Carsoe food handling divisions.
Bringing together Intech’s Intray line of denesters and Carsoe’s Anytray line makes Qupaq is the world’s leading provider of tray denesting and handling systems for food producers. Qupag currently denests and handles over 10 billion trays for food packing annually in more than 50 markets. The company sells its automation systems to food producers, packaging line integrators, and equipment re-sellers worldwide.
‘Having consolidated the combined strengths of Intech and Carsoe’s food handling activities, we needed a new name with a better fit for our product portfolio and international ambitions. Qupaq offers tangible benefits to our many food producing customers worldwide,’ explained Kim Weidemann, formerly CEO of Intech and now CEO of Qupaq.
‘Under the same roof, we will continue to invest in and develop the electric Intray line, the world’s most advanced denesting technology for high-volume producers, and the pneumatic Anytray line, the world’s leading best-value solution.’
He expects Qupaq to play a positive role in the industry and has ambitious goals for the new company.
‘As a major player in our niche, it’s important that we continue to work with our customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to find new solutions to existing and emerging challenges. Of course, providing customers with smarter automation for better production efficiencies and competitivity is a key strategic priority. At the same time, we’re also very interested in optimising hygienic, safe, and ergonomic production environments and in doing our part to reduce food waste and energy consumption.’
