Diedrich Roasters announces new expanded facility
Diedrich Roasters has announced a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ponderay, Idaho, along with significantly expanded facilities, process design and consulting services.
“Expanding our footprint into our state-of-the-art facility represents not only Diedrich Roaster’s growth, but also our commitment to the coffee roasting community,” CEO, Karl Schmidt, released in a statement. “We’re proud to be in a position to invest back into the business to secure our leadership position and help ensure future growth as the leading manufacturer of US-built roasting machines.”
Diedrich already manufactures approximately 40% of the global supply of specialty roasting equipment, and by consolidating three different locations into one streamlined, modern plant, Diedrich says it has taken quality manufacturing to the next level. The company says it will continue to hand-craft exceptional roasting equipment and expand its extensive on-site Factory Acceptance Test testing capabilities.
Diedrich’s expanded facility also adds a Professional Educational Center and Roasting Lab, reflecting the firm’s strong commitment to its customer educational and coffee training techniques.
“Our comprehensive and extensive process engineering and project development capabilities incorporates the full spectrum of services including packaging, equipment specification, procurement, process controls, installation, start up and commissioning,” stated Schmidt.
“At Diedrich we realise your success is our success,” said Schmidt. “We don’t just manufacture equipment; we provide specific business planning, manufacturing analysis and facility evaluation to facilitate our customers required growth strategies. We use our expansive industry knowledge and experience to identify, analyse and evaluate the customer market needs in order to provide appropriate capacity goals.
