LET US BUILD ONE FOR YOU!
Werner Poss developed the POSS mechanical separator technology in the mid 1970’s and POSS Design Limited was formed in 1978. Driven by industry demand, continuous advancements were made and a range of machine configurations were developed to meet the full range separation applications.
POSS has been marketing this proven line of mechanical separators for the last 36 years. With close to 1200 machines running in more than 67 countries worldwide, 200+ installations in the USA alone, and more than 50 + in each of the former East Bloc countries, Asia/ Australia/ New Zealand, and Brazil / Argentina / Uruguay and Chile, POSS is truly the global industry leader in Quality Separation Solutions.
More than 500 of these machines are designed to process conventional chicken mechanical deboning. 100+ more are running turkey deboning, primarily making USDA Ground Turkey from bone in turkey drums. The remainder were sold for pork deboning and beef shank de-sinewing, as well as various niche applications including pork skin de-fatting and boney trim to recover high value coarse ground product.
From 250 kg / 500 lbs/hr (10 hp / 7.5 kW) to 17,000+ kg / 40,000+ lbs/hr (150 hp / 113 kW) input capacities, POSS machines cover the full spectrum of separation applications. With unmatched throughputs and yields, no pre-breaking, and low temperature rise, can you really afford NOT to be running a POSS?
Ken graduated from University of Western Ontario (London Ontario) in 1984 with an undergrad degree majoring in Finance. Originally from Alberta, Ken worked in the Heavy Oil industry prior to joining POSS as the Controller in 1988. Promoted to GM in 1996, Ken gradually assumed more responsibility at POSS until the founder, Werner Poss, sold the company to Shato Holdings in 2000, at which time Ken was promoted to President / CEO.
In 2003 Ken and his wife Sylvie bought the company back from Shato, and began a steady pattern of growth that has seen the company expand its install base from 250 to over 1200 machines in 67 countries. Backed by a solid technical team and with a single focus on rotary extruder style separation, POSS has built an unparalleled reputation for meeting or exceeding its client’s expectations worldwide across a wide range of mechanical separation applications.
