Alfa Laval wins SEK 300 million brewery order

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply a complete process line to a brewery plant in Mexico. The order, worth approximately SEK 300 million, is booked in the Food Systems unit of the Food & Water Division. Delivery is scheduled for 2018.

The order comprises various pieces of equipment for a complete brewery process line, including process modules, valves, heat exchangers, mixers and other types of fluid handling equipment. The large-scale process line will, among other things, handle fermentation of yeast – as well as the maturation and filtration of beer.

“I am very pleased to announce this large brewery order which is one of the biggest orders in Alfa Laval in modern times,” says Nish Patel, President of the Food & Water Division. “It confirms that our products and solutions meet the high demands from the major players in the brewery industry when it comes to efficiency, reliability and performance.”

Did you know that… the beer production in Mexico increased by 8 percent during 2016 to 10.5 billion liters – and the country is now the fourth largest brewer in the world?[1]
