1963 - Foundation
Spiromatic was founded in 1963 by Adelin Dhont and Mariette Vermaerke, the parents of the current owners and business managers. Spiromatic initially produced storage and transport systems for nutrients.
1968 - Composite silos
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.
1969 - Spiral transport
Adelin Dhont 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.
1972 - Hybrid transport & minor ingredients
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's current main activity had then been laid.
1985 - Nazareth
Since 1985 Spiromatic has been operating from De Prijkels industrial estate in Nazareth on premises measuring 80,000 m³.
1997 - Extension
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.
2009 - Europe
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.
2011 - 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.
2017 - Fermentation process and VR
We also offer installations with the necessary fermentation tanks for wheat and rye flour. We develop a specific and optimised installation for each customer. All installations can be discovered in Virtual Reality.
2018 - Idromix
Our patented Idromix technology, developed in cooperation with Sigma, ensures excellent hydration between flour and water.
2019 - Technology center and test bakery
Customers can test and evaluate new methods and recipes in Spiromatic’s technology center. The center includes dough preparation equipment, a sifting and conveying line and a test bakery.
2020 - Scudo is born
SCUDO was born from the partnership of Sigma and Spiromatic, leaders in their respective markets in pre-food processing. The history and combined expertise of the two partner companies means that SCUDO can count on more than 100 years of experience. The result of this partnership is a company that offers and guarantees Specialized and CUstomized DOugh-mixing solutions.
