Since installing JEFFCO technology in 2006 the Okinawan sugar industry has gone from a situation where injuries to operators of the previous sugar cane shredding equipment occurred perhaps once or twice each year to no injuries across 12 years of operation in 10 sugar factories and using 16 JEFFCO Cutter Grinders. The high regard the equipment has in Japan for an enviable safety record is well earned!
During February 2019 the Sugar Industry in Okinawa, Japan hosted a visit by Jeffress Engineering for inspections and technical collaborations regarding the JEFFCO technology the industry relies upon for high accuracy cane quality measurement. Every sugar factory uses JEFFCO CG03 Cutter Grinder technology to ensure accurate payment of cane quality for growers and millers in their payment laboratories. Chris Henderson (General Manager) and Nico Petiet (Senior Mechanical Engineer) toured several facilities and met with all relevant industry organisations.
