UK chipping potato producer installs Dutch technology

Following the successful installation of Omnivent’s suction ventilation system, PJ Lee and Sons renovated their stores with the OmniCuro control system for 9 box stores (12.200 tons) at the Sutton Gault Pack House facility and have retrofitted the control systems into their other outlying stores. PJ Lee and Sons have been in business for around 60 years. The company consists of three generations, Peter Lee as the founder, his sons Trevor and Richard, and their sons Andrew and Christopher Lee. PJ Lee and Sons is one of the largest individual producers of top quality chipping potatoes in the country, predominately serving chip shops the length and breadth of the country; potatoes are also exported to Ireland. The Omnivent PJ Lee suction system was installed in the summer of 2014 in conjunction with their SE England’s agent Thurlow Nunn Stanton, integrating the OmniCuro control system into this new facility and later additional outlying cells across the estate.
