GAINESVILLE, Ga. (Jan. 13, 2009) — Avian Technology International celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2009 by continuing its tradition of strong customer service and reliable products.
Fritz Kempker started Avian Technology in 1989 and over the last 20 years has made the company into one of the top poultry export companies in the United States.
With a strong base in hatching egg distribution in the Caribbean and Central America and Kempker’s background in equipment sales, Avian Technology had a solid foundation to build from.
“We’ve expanded the business from the Caribbean and Central America to the Middle East,” Kempker said. “We have seen sustained growth domestically; we continue to know the needs of our customers, we are confident in the products we sell, and we still hold a lot of the customers I started with 20 years ago.”
The company’s growth led to a relocation of the corporate headquarters four years ago. Avian Technology moved into a new 15,000-square foot facility on White Sulphur Road in Gainesville, Ga. The new site gave the company 10,000 square feet of warehouse space.
“For the last five years, we’ve had 20 percent growth each year,” said vice president Jason Kempker, who oversees the daily operation. “As our business has expanded, we have added staff along the way to provide the best service for our customers.”
In 2007, Avian Technology opened a new state-of-the-art, climate-controlled egg distribution center at its headquarters. Avian Technology specializes in the export of broiler hatching eggs. It offers hatching eggs for worldwide distribution through its subsidiary ATI Farms. Avian Technology is a direct distributor of poultry and swine production equipment for some of the largest manufacturers in the world.
Avian Technology continues to look to expand into other markets. The in-roads they made over the last 20 years have given them stability in tough economic times.
“Spending so much time in Central America and the Caribbean, and broadening our horizons in the U.S. and Middle East markets has paid off,” Jason Kempker said.
Avian Technology is a family-owned business. In addition to Jason overseeing daily operations as vice president, his brother Tyler heads up the injector equipment division. The Kempkers believe in developing a personal connection with their customers.
“We deal with a lot of family businesses,” Fritz Kempker said. “We try to build lasting relationships with customers. It always makes me proud to be able to introduce my sons as being part of the business and our success.”
“Being accountable and providing personalized service have contributed to our success and led to long-standing relationships with our customers,” Jason Kempker said.
That family atmosphere is evident throughout the company. The Avian Technology staff prides itself on customer service.
“I give a lot of credit to our employees.” Jason Kempker said. “We work as a family. Everybody does what needs to be done. One thing we don’t say is ‘It’s not my job.’ You are representative of Avian Tech. We do whatever it takes to get it done. We’ve got a good team.”
From the United States to the world, Avian Technology is a leading American supplier and exporter of broiler hatching eggs, vaccines, and poultry and swine production equipment. Founded in 1989, the company has offices the United States and Panama and serves clients around the world. For more information about Avian Technology, call 770-287-8006 or visit www.aviantech.com.
