FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: San Joaquin Systems Joins Partnership with GK
As of May 2018, General Kinematics entered a new partnership with San Joaquin Systems, a nut processing equipment supplier based in Central California. SJS has a long history in the nut processing industry, expanding their expertise to the processing of other foods such as coffee, wine, and pet food.
California Territory Sales Manager, Derek Kerkera, who has organized the partnership stated: “I am excited for the opportunity to provide solutions to customers in the nut industry. Heavy robust equipment is what they are looking for so it will be a great collaboration with SJS.”
GK and SJS are excited about the opportunity to work together and look forward to the prospect of combining the skills of both companies to provide expert solutions to food processing customers across the U.S. This being a new food market for General Kinematics, there has been much buzz about designing new equipment specifically for this field.
Similar to cereal and other food vibratory equipment, there are some differences in requirements and expectations for the nut industry. “It’s not very often you get to create something completely new and different,” Derek commented. “I can’t wait to start designing.” The work between SJS and GK has already begun.
