LS Scientific ended the year on a high note by organising an international training for one of its top customers. The training was to familiarise the end-users with a Buchi Kjeldahl system for Protein and Nitrogen determination in dairy products, recently acquired by FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria plc.
Staff of both companies who benefited from the training include: Margaret Ikoh – quality control and Said Ige – maintenance engineer (instrumentation), both of FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria; and Kehinde Odeniyi – sales executive, LS Scientific, who were all received at the Buchi head office in Flawil Switzerland in late November 2014, and taken on a tour round the facility, before the training proper began.
According to Margaret Ikoh, “being the market leader in the Nigerian diary sector, FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria is determined to ensure fast quality control of intermediate products to reduce waste and optimise its manufacturing processes. And this is well exemplified through the company’s procurement of the Buchi Kjeldahl system for Protein and Nitrogen determination and the training of its operators.
Apart from the regular online training sessions and support, LS Scientific made a commitment to create better value for the end-user of the Protein and Nitrogen determination system and their operators by particpating in the hands-on training.
Kehinde Odeniyi of LS Scientific said that “it was a once in a life time experience and a training with a difference. There was so much to learn not only about the equipment and other products, but also about Buchi as a company and switzerland as a country. We even learnt that there are other applications to this system which we never knew.”
FrieslandCampina Nigeria’s acquisition of this system seeks to optimise the quality assurance process, whether at incoming or outgoing goods inspection, at route to production or quality control for declaration purposes.
