We would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends and LMC family this year.
We are grateful and blessed for the time we get to share with each other.
We have made some key structural changes to our Sales and Service departments which will maximize the strengths of our team players.
This is just a small part of the many opportunities we seek to better serve our customers.
Long time LMC customers and friends, AGD, based in General Deheza, Cordoba, Argentina, recently held the grand opening of their latest processing facility, a LMC designed almond hulling and shelling plant in Mendoza Province, Argentina.
While Mendoza is noted for its wine production and has had small almond facilities for years, this is the first commercial almond operation built to world processing standards.
Argentinian President, Sr. Mauricio Macri, was there to join in, to speak and to congratulate the AGD team and the Urquia family for their vision and action in developing a larger almond market for Argentine farmers.
Congratulations to the LMC design team, led by company president, Joey Trice, for a job well done. Joey was there for the commissioning of the plant and the initial training of the AGD personnel in using LMC almond equipment. Initial reports from the first year’s operation are that their customers are pleased and that the almonds are fantastic.
AGD is an integrated agricultural industrial complex whose main activity include production of corn, peanut, soy and sunflower oils, vegetable protein meals, shelled peanuts, as well as manufacturers of mayonnaise, ketchup and other sauces. AGD and LMC have been friends and for over 35 years.
Thank you and congratulations!
We received some great shots of a job we finished in India. LMC did the design work and the customer built and installed everything based off of our designs. However, it was really by the grace of God we were able to complete this project literally half a world away from Donalsonville. Here’s why; part way through this project a computer glitch deleted a large portion of what we had completed. We had some reference files which weren’t affected so, luckily, we didn’t have to start completely from scratch but most of our 3D files had to be completely redone so it might has well have been. We took a deep breath, redoubled our efforts, and forged ahead. These things happen but problems are really solutions in disguise. This data loss did give us the opportunity to see things with a fresh eye. As a result, there were some minor changes in the process that were made to our original designs versus what was actually built. These changes actually improved our original intent. In the end, this AgroCrops facility is now responsible for cleaning and sizing shelled peanuts at a rate of 25,000 pounds per hour!
