ACO China helps finalise creation of EHEDG regional section for China

Monica Chen, Divisional Leader of ACO Building Drainage in China, travel to the head office of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) to complete the final steps required for the creation of the new EHEDG regional section in China. Monica, who was recently appointed as Secretary for EHEDG China, will travel to EHEDG with representatives of the Chinese Institute of Food Science and Technology (CIFST).

The EHEDG visit will be combined with a visit to EHEDG’s testing institute and a dairy factory in Munich. Monica Chen will then take representatives of the CIFST to the Czech Republic to visit ACO Industries’ state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Pribyslav where initial discussions about forming an EHEDG Regional Section in China took place with EHEDG President, Knuth Lorenzen.

Commenting on Monica Chan’s visit, Jan Cisek - Managing Director of ACO Industries k.s., said: “Monica’s involvement with the creation of a new EHEDG Regional Sector for China underlines our commitment to driving improvements in hygienic engineering standards across both the food manufacturing and processing sectors.”

ACO’s collaborative relationship with EHEDG is a core part of its HygieneFirst philosophy – an approach to hygienic drainage design that embodies its commitment to raising standards across every part of the hygienic drainage process from design and installation through to cleaning and ongoing maintenance.

ACO was the first drainage manufacturer to become a member of EHEDG and also played a key role in the creation of two new EHEDG Regional Chapters in Europe. Its Technical Director authored “The Hygienic Design of Floor Drainage Components” chapter of the EHEDG Yearbook (2013/2014) and ACO initiated the creation of EHEDG guidance document ‘Doc 44’ and, in conjunction with other food industry experts, played a key role in its development.
