‘Combined processing excellence now a reality’: Kiremko and FAM Stumabo announce global partnership

Kiremko and FAM Stumabo have entered into a long-term global partnership. Kiremko is a world leader in the manufacturing of turnkey potato processing lines. FAM Stumabo is known globally for its progressive industrial potato cutting solutions and innovative shapes produced by hydro-cutting technology.   

In this partnership, FAM – a Kiremko partner for more than 20 years – will supply mechanical cutting systems, and Stumabo will provide precision blades and expertise to integrate the best blades in Kiremko’s hydro-cutting systems. Stumabo will cover the complete and direct fulfilment of blades for Kiremko customers.

Long-term strategy

Kiremko, with its outstanding potato processing and machine building knowledge, will exclusively use Stumabo knives in its innovative cutting line and hydro cutters.

In the short term, this partnership will lead to efficient logistics and thus cost savings for the customer. Optimization will take place in cutting lines regarding the overall service life of knife blocks, which will result in improved raw product cutting and considerable reduction in waste product, with the added benefit of reduced down time.

In the long term, these efficiency gains will lead to noticeable cost reduction for customers. In addition, Kiremko and FAM Stumabo are continuously working on improvements to the cutting systems with the aim of producing a better product of even higher quality. Enhanced sustainability is top of mind by reducing waste and optimal use of raw material – all of which contribute to eventual customer success.

Strengthened parnership

“I am delighted by Kiremko’s choice to integrate our chip gun blades into their cutting heads,” says Wilfried Rombauts, Sales Director at Stumabo International. “I am convinced that our customers stand to win a lot from this partnership. This conviction is reinforced by the already very successful collaboration of FAM with Kiremko, which we at Stumabo intend to reinforce and enhance even further with our contribution as a partner.”

World class quality products for customers

According to Marcel van Huissteden, Kiremko Director: “We are very excited to announce the partnership with Stumabo, although at the same time it feels very familiar because we have been working with FAM for many years. We have no doubt about what we can achieve together as a team, since both companies are delivering products of world class quality to customers. It’s a good match. I can hardly wait for our customers to reap the benefits of this unique partnership.”
