Alltech company Keenan has been named the machinery innovation winner of the 2017 Innovation Arena Awards for its self-propelled diet feeder.
Keenan's MechFiber345SP paddle mixer, the first self-propelled machine in the Keenan range, was shortlisted in the established engineering innovation category.
“Winning the Innovation Arena Award is super accolade for the team at Keenan. This is a very special win when you consider Keenan was only acquired by Alltech in April 2016. Engineering work on the self-propelled began in July 2016 and we brought it to market in January 2017 at SIMA in Paris. This award is a testament to Keenan's knowledge and experience in identifying a market opportunity and bringing it to fruition in true rapid Alltech style,” said Robbie Walker, CEO, Keenan.
