Aviagen Kft invested €12 million in the new facility, which has a PS capacity of 10 million per year, with room to expand by 20% in the future. Petersime supplied the hatchery design as well as the incubators

Mr Balázs Takács, Aviagen Kft’s General Director, said: “The investment in the hatchery at Mezőörs is evidence of the popularity and success of our products in the Central and Eastern European region. The new facility with state-of-the-art technology enables us to serve our expanding parent stock customer base. It also offers us the flexibility to grow in line with increasing demand in the future.” 

The new facility uses the Petersime BioStreamer™ Re-Store, which restores the viability of stored eggs, narrows the hatch window and produces more uniform chicks by applying heat treatments. After the heat treatment, the eggs are set in Petersime BioStreamer™ 4S or 12S setters and 4H or 8H hatchers. The hatchery is strategically located close to GP farms and benefits from strong infrastructure and transportation links as well as excellent health and biosecurity standards.
