CNC 5 Axis Mill. Increased Design Team. High Production. Reasonable Cost
If the objective of ANKO is to pursue world recognition of their food machines, then they are closer to achieving their goals. After over 30 years of food machine supply, ANKO decided to take a step further, a big step, to become one of the best in the food making machine industry. It took them 5 years and 20 million USD, but finally, ANKO’s new plant was built.
Why would a food machine company invest 20 million USD in their new plant? "To expand and improve our production and organization capability, we've decided to move. Once the decision was made, we started to look for land. It's a big change but we know it has to be done in order to grow." said Richard OuYang, general manager of ANKO.
Five years later, ANKO moved, from originally over 20,000 to 107,000 square feet. ANKO showed a complete new look and feel to their clients. As soon as the move was settled, ANKO started to recruit talent. New change, new goals, ANKO has lots of plans.
ANKO is expanding and there is lots of info to secure, so the internet speed has to be stable. The fiber optic network design plays a crucial role in system reliability. At ANKO, the brand new up-to-date software, hardware and devises have been implemented to protect all the investment, it is just amazing.
