Spiromatic develops durable total solutions for automated storage, conveying and dosing of dry & liquid raw materials for the food industry.
Spiromatic was founded in 1963 by Adelin Dhont and Mariette Vermarcke, the parents of the current owners and business managers. Spiromatic initially produced transport and storage systems for nutrients
Adelin Dhont was a visionary, and constantly ventured into unknown territory with new ideas to always stay one step ahead of the larger competitors. He enjoyed great success here, and as early as in the sixties used the innovative product composite, a composition of polyester resin and glass fibre, to build silos for nutrients.
Adelin Dhont then soon decided to make his innovative product available for use for the industrial storage of flour and sugar. At the same time Spiromatic pioneered in using alternative spiral transport in large-scale food processes.
The combination of modern pneumatic transport techniques and the unique properties of spiral transport led Spiromatic to design “Hybrid transport”. Industrial food companies then saw an ideal solution to replace their energy-hungry spiral and pneumatic transport processes by flexible, more accurate and dust-free spiral transport. The foundations of Spiromatic NV’s current main activity had then been laid.
Since 1985 Spiromatic has been operating from De Prijkels industrial estate in Nazareth on premises measuring 80,000 m³.
Spiromatic expanded in a number of areas over several years. The expansion of the production hall by 7,000 m², the construction of a new production hall for the silos, along with the renewal of the production process and an office building extension.
Innovation and daring to change in the food market still runs through the veins of the current management with this manifesting itself in strong annual growth. Accordingly, in this period Spiromatic became one of the most important players in ingredient processing in Europe.
Automation and liquids
Besides the storage, transport and automation of dry substances, as a player on the world stage Spiromatic has also established a presence in thoroughly integrated automation solutions and liquid dough processes.
