HIROSHIMA, JAPAN — Satake Corp. and Alapala announced in March the rebirth of the Henry Simon range of flour milling equipment. From its inception in 1878, Henry Simon of Manchester, England, has been known as an innovator and a driving force that helped create today’s milling industry.

The new range of equipment captures the original pioneering spirit combined with the groundbreaking design and aesthetics resulting from the combined research and development from Japanese and European design hubs, the companies said. The equipment will be built in the newly completed Alapala manufacturing complex that features robotic cutting, welding and assembly technology.

The equipment will be released to the industry at the 121st Annual Conference and Expo of the International Association of Operative Millers (IAOM) April 10-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.

On display for the first time will be the roller mill and purifier, which are the result of a partnership between Satake and Alapala. This latest collaboration follows the announcement in July 2015 when the strategic partnership was initially announced. The companies said the partnership incorporates the sharing technology, sales capabilities and human resources for milling clients around the world.

Headquartered in Hiroshima, Japan, Satake Corporation is a leading food and grain engineering company. Alapala, headquartered in Corum, Turkey, is a leading flour, maize and feed milling engineering companies.
