Alfa Laval opens innovation center in Denmark

Oct. 2, 2020

Alfa Laval recently opened an application and innovation center for fluid handling technology in Kolding, Denmark to strengthen the company's global position within food and pharmaceuticals, which are important growth areas for the company.    

The purpose of the new center is to accelerate the development of new product innovations within the hygienic fluid handling technology (including pumps, valves, cleaning and mixing equipment). The 1,600-square-metre center, located at Alfa Laval's site in Kolding, will also be a global test facility for food and pharmaceutical applications where customers can experience the performance of Alfa Laval equipment under actual operating conditions.

"Changing consumer trends drive demand for new food products which in turn requires flexible process equipment. In addition, food producers strive to find more efficient and sustainable processes by getting more out of their natural resources while also saving water and energy. Simply put; the food industry is depending on innovation," says Nish Patel, President of the Food & Water Division. "Our latest innovation centre can accelerate our development of products and solutions for safe and efficient food and pharma production. It will strengthen our capability to meet our customers' current and future needs."

Alfa Laval has three other global innovation and test centers in Denmark; in Söborg, for decanters for food and water applications; in Aalborg, for marine applications; and in Nakskov, for membrane filtration for food, pharmaceutical and water applications.

This is Alfa Laval

Alfa Laval, a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, is active in the areas of energy, marine, and food & water, offering its expertise, products, and service to a wide range of industries in some 100 countries.
