Sterner secure Maskon partnership for UK & Ireland26 August, 2011 –

Sterner are delighted to announce that they have become the UK & Ireland representative for Maskon.

Maskon’s high speed vaccination machine is a revolutionary product for the aquaculture industry.  Not only does it have an automatic feeder and orientation unit supplying fish to the vaccination machine, but it can also use a unique two tank system within the anesthetic unit which allows continuous operation of the machine over a 12 hour period with no downtime for wash downs.

This easy to operate machine only requires one operator for either version.  The fully modular nature of the system allows for customisation to meet different installation needs, with the basic machine operating with a capacity of approximately 10,000 fish per hour.

Gregor Sutherland, Operations Director, Sterner said “Our partnership with Maskon is another example of Sterner working to bring only the highest quality products to the UK and Ireland.  Maskon show the qualities we look for in a manufacturer – excellent design, fantastic build quality and support, as well as an interest in the end user.  This approach by Maskon complements our existing portfolio of partners who share this approach in supporting Aquaculture across the UK & Ireland”
