6 stainless steel yogurt tanks for the German Schwarzwaldmilch dairy

Gpi has undertaken a very fruitful cooperation with a regional company from southwestern Germany, one of the leading dairies in the entire country – Schwarzwaldmilch. When dairy tradition is combined with an experienced manufacturer of stainless steel tanks and a professional approach on both sides – the result is destined for success.

The cooperation with Gpi was very collaborative, professional, customer-oriented and efficient. Inquiries and change requests were always processed quickly and very satisfactorily.

Milk product tanks weighing 1.4 t each, have a design pressure of -0.06/+0.50 bar and a temperature of 0/120°C. 50mm thick PIR boards were used as tank insulation.

About collaboration

Tomasz Stocki, Project Manager in Gpi Tanks GmbH is saying about collaboration with Schwarzwaldmilch:

Our communication was exemplary from the very beginning, which allowed us to make good decisions and effectively solve the technical aspects of the project. From the first meeting, we had the impression that there was a certain “chemistry” between us, which influenced our joint determination to achieve the goal.

Gpi always kept the client informed about production progress, which allowed us to build trust throughout the project.

By always being open to suggestions and changes, we met all guidelines and additional issues were resolved immediately. This resulted in another order and, we hope, long-term cooperation.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and level of detail of the engineering. The tank drawings were very clear and helped to complete the technical clarification quickly.

In particular, the cooperation with Ms. Opalska, Mr. Stocki and Mr. Lunkenbein was very productive.
