Field Services

We have listened and adapted to align our services to the changing needs of our food manufacturing customers. Our field service team is growing to support customers who need technical knowledge, experience and response for repairs and parts.

Our field services team is staffed by techs who have several years of experience fabricating Mepaco equipment, and new team members with significant commissioning service experience to provide the best support to install, monitor and service Mepaco equipment.

In addition, we are continually developing technical resources to help customers learn more about best maintenance practices for longer equipment life.

Tech tips, how-to videos, equipment manuals are available in the customer portal or by opting into our email resources.

Metal Finishing

Mepaco, part of the Apache Stainless family, offers mechanical and chemical finishing in-house. Many customers request our high-performance finishes to reduce food safety risk and to create sanitation efficiencies.

The type of food product, bacterial count, manufacturing function, and sanitation procedures all have an impact on the requirements of equipment finishes.

Electropolished food contact surfaces are commonly included in Mepaco’s cookers, mixers, pump feeders, vacuum stuffers, screw conveyors and inside chutes of dumping equipment. Agitators, shafts, and augers can also be electropolished, to treat the entire food contact surface. Electropolishing services are offered in-house by experienced technicians; there is no dependency on outsourcing.
