SALMCO Technik GmbH was founded in 1984 by Dipl.-Ing. Johann Glösmann in Hamburg, Germany. It is 28 years ago now that Salmco has placed its first salmon slicer on the market.  Today we offer cold and fresh slicers with a wide range of capacities and options which ad dress the requirements of small family-run companies as well as those of large industrial operations.

The product range offers everything from simple hand slicers to semi- and fully automatic cold slicers and various fresh slicers. The company offers different solutions for different requirements: a specially modified cold slicer combined with a vacuum packaging machine for the complete production of 200g packages for instance; or the newly developed fresh slicer SM 5290 which uses a variable 15° to 90° cutting angle to produce the 'bacon cut' particularly popular in the USA. By cutting the salmon fillet into three pieces and placing these crosswise on the conveyor belt this machine can also be used to produce rectangular slices for the catering sector. Small alterations to the machines are sufficient to adapt them to processing species of fish other than salmon, too.

The Salmco slicers range from small to middle to large-sized so customers may choose machines to perfectly fit their own production lines. Some producers prefer to have various smaller units in order to achieve a higher level of flexibility. It is a way of reducing risk since - should a machine need down-time - it doesn't mean the whole production-line comes to a standstill.

Salmco is active in three areas: the standard range of slicers, the development and combination of customer-oriented machines as well as complete processing lines and, finally, the comprehensive international consultancy.
