Around two years ago, Dr. Faisal Shahid, decided to start his own new venture and Faisal Feeds was launched with initial outputs of 30 tons per hour. With a promise of great quality as his guiding principle, Shahid also started his broiler farms – and with ambitions to build a complete integration, the operation has grown quickly to achieve its latest development in the realization of the Faisal Chicks parent stock farm.
The parent stock farm is equipped to produce 200,000 chicks per week from start-up, to supply Faisal Broiler and for sales to other farms in the region. The company commissioned SmartPro single-stage incubation technologies from Pas Reform to launch the operation. Starting with six SmartSetPro setters and six SmartHatchPro hatchers, the new hatchery is also equipped with a full HVAC installation from Pas Reform.
Company eyes further expansionSince launching the new hatchery, Faisal Chicks has seen many successful hatches and Shahid is very pleased with results, both in the hatchery and in the broiler farm. “Faisal Feeds is best known for quality poultry feeds,” he said. “As such, it was important to complement our reputation for quality with healthy, uniform, high quality chicks."
With plans to double production within the year, Shahid is already planning a second phase of expansion, with more incubators to follow.
Dr. Tan Ee Seng, Pas Reform’s regional sales director is happy to be partnering Faisal Feeds in its ambitious plans - and delighted with the close working relationship between Shahid and his team in the overall management of the incubators and the hatchery.
“I know Dr. Shahid as a highly experienced person with a deep understanding of the sector and his business”, said Tan. “His research was, I know, very careful and thorough, so it is even more satisfying that ultimately he chose SmartPro from Pas Reform. I believe Faisal Feeds and its associated integration will be a key “agent of change” for the hatchery sector and the poultry business.”
