“Earlier this year, we retrofitted our single lane Durand UltraSort sizer with the Ellips TrueSort electronic grading solution with weight, size and color. The software was easy to learn, is very user-friendly and helps us improve our bagging results. The accuracy and reliablity of TrueSort is everything that we were looking for and more.”

“We based our adoption of the Elisam Gran Torino sizer on two primary metrics, final pack grading improvement and labor reduction. Since install, we’ve continued to meet or exceed our pack quality targets across grades and reduced our labor content by 70%. In the end, we’ll pay back this equipment in less than half the expected time. The partnership with Durand and Elisam has proven to be an important operational asset for our business.”

“After installing Durand’s latest blemish grading technology from Ellips, we reduced our labor by 20% while still maintaining the same quality and volume. I have been packing apples for many years and it was odd not to have people at the pick out rollers.”
