With increasing demand for its range of wet and smoked fish fillets and portions, it was important for Grimsby-based Kirwin Brothers Limited to have an efficient production operation. So it made perfect sense to turn to Fortress Technology for high quality metal detection equipment.

Whitefish processor, Kirwin Brothers, purchased its first Fortress ‘Phantom’ metal detector to fulfil the production requirements of a new customer. Installed to inspect wet fish fillets, it was custom designed by Fortress, to fit on a low level line, making it easier for operatives to lift the heavy containers.

The success of the first system prompted Kirwin Brothers to buy a second metal detector four months later to help meet the increased volume of new pre-packed products being supplied to leading supermarket retailers.

Paul Robinson from Kirwin Brothers comments: “We opted for Fortress metal detectors because the company came highly recommended by one of our suppliers. We were aware its equipment is considered the best in the industry by many food processors. The product and service provided by Fortress was exceptional. Both metal detectors were delivered on schedule and have proved to be robust, reliable and very easy to use.”
