SAS founder Peter King says the move has already started making a big impression on the marketplace.

“We are the first supplier to be able to deliver a complete spice application system within 14 days – no-one else can do that and the response has been tremendous,” he said. “It means food manufacturers keen to invest in the power of electrostatics can install our equipment with the minimum of fuss and delay and will very quickly see the benefits.

“Powder savings, increased efficiency and improved product quality are proven advantages of electrostatics and achieving this will instantly help to fast forward the return on investment.”

The new two-week delivery cycle has been made possible by an expansion programme at SAS’s headquarters, giving it the space required to stock all the component parts of its exclusive systems.

With more than two decades of expertise and experience, SAS is a recognised leader in the use of electrostatics to apply flavourings and coatings to a wide range of foodstuffs, including snacks, breakfast cereals, confectionery, meat, fish and pet food.
