The J-Tech team are really excited to win the UPL Tech Innovation Award for 2022 for the APORO Robotic Produce Packer.
J-Tech Systems Sales Manager Automation, Tim Bond was on hand at the Hort Connections gala dinner in Brisbane to accept the award. ‘Winning the 2022 Tech Innovation Award for APORO Robotic Produce Packer is huge for us’ Tim said ‘Aporo is a real game changer in pack-houses, with how it’s helping to fill the gap in the labour market, in delivering a consistent high-quality presentation of fruit in trays and speeding up delivery to market’ he said.
The win is an exciting addition to just how well APORO is being received in the Australian produce market. We all know how difficult it’s been for the fresh produce industry with staff over recent years, and APORO significantly increases the output of produce while reducing how many people are needed to pack, meaning they can be relocated to other pressure points in the shed. APORO is a great solution for pack-houses of all sizes. It retrofits seamlessly into existing lines and is already having a huge impact in the market, particularly in apples and stone fruit with getting produce to market in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner.
The General Manager of J-Tech Systems Michael Williams said ‘Winning with APORO is just great and we’re thankful to UPL for sponsoring the award’ he said. ‘The other finalists in the category were all very strong so winning meant a lot to us’ he said. ‘J-Tech Systems is all about delivering the best solutions and the latest product innovations into our marketplace and APORO will continue to go from strength the strength’ he said.
