Buhler Sortex opens new site.

Buhler Sortex, manufacturer of optical sorters for food processors, recently moved to a plant at Gallions Reach in London.

Buhler Sortex was founded as Gunson's Sortex, in 1947 when London was preparing for the 1948 Olympic Games. Now part of Switzerland's Buhler Group, the infrastructure requirements of the 2012 London Olympics have led to its relocation from Pudding Mill Lane.

"When the Olympic City selection process was under way I was convinced that Paris would be chosen," said Bruno Kilshaw, managing director of Buhler Sortex. "I watched the announcement of the IOC's decision on TV with some colleagues and when London was named I was stunned. I knew that we had barely two years to relocate and was not convinced that it was possible."

The new site also becomes home to the UK offices of the Buhler Group. CEO Calvin Grieder is convinced that significantly greater efficiencies and cost savings will result from a single site operation.
