Since the 1970s, Crider Foods has been a producer, supplier and marketer of shelf-stable and fully cooked products among customers in retail, foodservice and education sectors. Crider is the market leader in canned chicken and holds Safe Quality Foods (SQF) Level 3 status — a third party certification that emphasizes Crider’s dedication to safe and wholesome foods.
Crider previously installed traditional wall mounted hand dyers and paper towel dispensers in its washrooms and wash-in stations. However, the company recognized key issues that affected both safety and productivity. Crider had concerns regarding whether their existing hand dryers were hygienic and safe for their food manufacturing environment. Additionally, because there were separate areas to wash and dry hands, water dripped onto the floor and increased risk of injuries. Finally, Crider realized that valuable employee time was being lost due to having separate areas for hand dryers and lengthy dry times from the existing dryers. When Crider began new construction and rehab projects at its facility, it made the decision to find technology that offered a more hygienic, safe and fast experience.
Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers.
Norman Scalf, Projects Engineer, contacted Dyson for an Airblade™ technology demonstration upon the request of Mr. Crider. Scalf learned about the new Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer, which was the first technology to offer a wash and dry solution at the sink. The Dyson Airblade Tap dryer reduces water on the floor and saves space. And as the only hand dryer with NSF P335 and HACCP International certifications, it provides a fast, hygienic drying solution proven safe for use in food manufacturing environments. Scalf and the upper management team were impressed and elected to install Dyson Airblade Tap dryers in Crider’s washrooms and wash-in areas.
