Jamesway is very pleased to announce a continued relationship with Nigeria’s Zartech Poultry Company as the company plans expansion to its facilities in Lagos. Zartech Limited is a part of The ZARD group of companies based in Ibadan, Oyo State of Nigeria. The addition of 11 Multi-Stage incubators and 11 PX Hatchers will output 11 million eggs a year, giving the location an annual output of 51 million eggs per year. As the largest poultry company in West Africa, they are anticipating exports into neighboring countries, as Africa’s growing demand for protein increases.

Zartech produces Cobb 500 chicks, and ensuring they have the best start requires an incubator that can deliver the best chick quality. Zartech’s hatchery has that confidence in Jamesway machines, which they also use in their other hatcheries. Hatchery Manager Orlodo Stephenson admits that they have proven to be “robust machines which provide excellent results:” including impressive energy efficiencies.
