Kiremko was founded in 1965 as an offshoot of a trading company named Kiréma who supplied equipment to snack bars and restaurants. Before that time the snack market was an American phenomenon largely unknown in Europe. Kiréma was quick to break into the new market and began firstly by selling pre-frying lines and quickly followed by automatic pre-frying lines. As the market kept growing, production lines with higher capacities were in demand and Kiremko was founded as a separate company to achieve this goal. Kiremko became independent in 1983 and personnel and turnover have continued to grow impressively ever since. Kiremko is now an important worldwide player in the market for food processing equipment.
We develop, manufacture and install all machinery required for the automatic and semi-automatic processing of potatoes into French fries, snack products such as chips, pellets, tortilla chips and other potato by-products like flakes, salads and mash. Furthermore, we supply machines for processing vegetables, not only for fresh but also for deep-frozen and the chilled market.
Kiremko’s processing technology includes designing, manufacturing and installing of machines for: destoning, washing, peeling, blanching, cooking, forming, cutting, drying, frying, pasteurising, sterilising, cooling, freezing, (optical) sorting, transport, distribution, weighing and packing: Kiremko can deliver it all, from the infeed of the product as raw material up to the outfeed as ready-made, packed final product. The individual machines form a chain in which every link is an example of inventiveness and reliability.
We supply a range of standard machines, but in most cases manufacture machines or complete production lines, which are tailor made to the specification of the customer. This is our major strength, the more complicated the wishes of the customer, the more the manufacturer has to prove through know-how, engineering, quality, inventiveness and a good pre- and after-sales service.
The machines are installed worldwide with approximately 85% of our sales being exported.
Since 1978 Kiremko has had a partnership with its associate in the United Kingdom, Kiremko (U.K.) Ltd..
In 1996 the company joined forces with Idaho Steel Products Inc., a well-known manufacturer of high quality food processing equipment in the United States. This move strengthened Kiremko’s presence in the North American market. In July 2005 Idaho Steel Products, acquired all the available stock of REYCO Systems Inc. REYCO Systems supplies a complimentary range of industrial equipment for the food processing industry. The cooperation between Idaho Steel Products, REYCO Systems and Kiremko offer customers worldwide an excellent source for all their food processing equipment needs.
