IMG_5996.jpg

Drawing on previous experience with almond processing control systems, SAGE Automation is engaged to undertake the Electrical Design and Software Development for the greenfield Almondco Processing Plant and manufacture of the associated Motor Control Centres.
The MCCs are currently under construction and benefiting from the streamlined process enabled by our design office and manufacturing facility being all under one roof, which inturn reduces project risk for Almondco.

“These switchboards are critical to the reliability of our new processing plant and the quality of the solution being delivered by SAGE Automation is impressive.”
Craig Haskard Group Project and Maintenance Manager, Almondco
