Butcher Norlyk had a new traysealer installed for top sealing of trays just a few days before the corona shutdown hit Denmark in March. Today, the food company in Grindsted is happy that Nemco managed to launch the new traysealer from Sealpac before the corona crisis really broke out. Butcher Norlyk has had a turnover increase of 20-25 percent since March. And it is far from certain that Slagter Norlyk would have been able to deliver all the requested products on time if Nemco had not helped the company with the delivery and installation of the new traysealer.
- We have been busy during the corona pandemic. We have clearly noticed that people have been at home and that they have bought several of our products in the supermarkets. So we still have the 41 employees that we also had before the crisis broke out, says Ulla Holst Møller, who owns Slagter Norlyk together with her husband Lars Møller.
Machine delivered quickly
In early 2020, Butcher Norlyk tumbled with major problems with their old top-sealing machine. The machine was unstable and there were many production stops.
- The lack of stability was problematic because we only had one packing machine. We entered into a dialogue with René Dammand from Nemco. He recommended a Sealpac traysealer and we got him to ask Sealpac how fast they could deliver such a machine. Sealpac was able to do this in a very short time, and Nemco installed the machine efficiently and competently, and so quickly that our customers did not discover it. Not a single package of minced meat was not delivered on time, says Lars Møller.
Nemco was at Slagter Norlyk for the first 14 days with the new traysealer and helped implementing the machine, and assisted with new packaging solutions.
- Throughout, we have received good and competent service from Nemco. They know exactly what their machines can do and they have helped us when we needed it. Today, we handle 52 trays per minute, contrary to the 15 trays per minute on the old machine, says Lars Møller.
In addition, according to Ulla Holst Møller, the Sealpac tray sealer is stable. Thus, Slagter Norlyk now avoids situations where three men in the production cannot continue working, at the same time as there is a driver waiting in vain for finished products.
Old-fashioned butcher's quality
Butcher Norlyk started in 1959 as a traditional butcher shop in Sønder Omme. Since then, Slagter Norlyk has developed into a modern food company, whose products are primarily sold by the supermarket chains Lidl, Netto, Aldi and ABC Lavpris. The latter uses Slagter Norlyk as a butcher for all of the chain's 14 stores. For the other chains, Slagter Norlyk primarily supplies spot goods, but the Grindsted company has just entered into an agreement with Aldi for a fixed supply of turkey tenderloin and turkey cordon bleu. And for Lidl, Slagter Norlyk is developing a gourmet spiced sausage in collaboration with Michelin chef Wassim Hallal.
- We deliver old-fashioned butcher's quality. It is Lars and I, who develop the products. We are involved in all stages of production. We even go out and taste. We step in if a helping hand is needed somewhere in the company. Machine-wise, Slagter Norlyk can do the same as Skare and Danish Crown, but on a much smaller scale. This also means that we accept relatively small orders, says Ulla Holst Møller.
95 percent of the meat in Slagter Norlyk's products is Danish. The company is organically certified according to the ISO 22.000 standard and is aiming to become IFS certified this year.
- We are very aware of what our customers require. If a customer gets a new need, then we are good at reorganizing production immediately. This is our hallmark, says Lars Møller
