Eden Industries has recently placed orders with Delta for its fourth and fifth process plants. The first plant, purchased from Delta in 1988, is still working on a multi-shift basis today. Over the years The Sloane Group (Now Eden Industries) has expanded its business and by working very closely with Delta, both companies have achieved a complete understanding of each others’ requirements. As a result ‘Eden Industries’ has derived maximum benefit from the latest technology. The two new plants include pre-treatment plant, dry-off ovens, powder systems and cure ovens fully integrated via transport systems. A further 5 plants are scheduled for the Czech Republic, the first of which has just been commissioned.
