History

 

  • 1978 “ANKO Industrial Co., Ltd.” was born

    Raw food diets were trending in Taiwan then, so ANKO designed a sprouting machine for the bean sprout diet that was widely advocated in the market, successfully developing a fully automated non-electric sprouter. The tabletop sprouter, taking up little space and being easy to operate, quickly settled into many home and restaurant kitchens of that time. ANKO’s foundation of growth was thus established.

  •  

  • 1985 The order for a fully automated spring roll machine set the cornerstone for ANKO’s professional Chinese food machinery equipment

    ANKO Industrial hadn’t moved into the food machine industry yet, but received a customer’s request for a fully-automated spring roll machine. To satisfy the customer’s needs, chairman Robert Ouyoung approached Chinese food equipment for the first time. He started to participate in many professional food equipment expositions, exploring local supermarkets around the world and the features and requirements of foods from different countries. This paved the way for ANKO Food Machine’s markets.

  •  

  • 1987 ANKO began dedicated development of Chinese food machinery, moving towards the global market

    The market opportunities for Chinese foods drove ANKO towards developing a range of Chinese dim sum machines such as for dumplings, shumai, spring rolls, wontons, pot stickers, xiaolongbao, shrimp dumplings, scallion pancakes, tangyuan (glutinous rice balls), baozi, mantou (Chinese steamed buns), and more. ANKO also gradually expanded to international markets, with sales in several locations around the world.

  •  

  • 1988 ANKO’s best-selling machine, the HLT Series Filling & Forming Machine, was released

    In 1988, the first generation of ANKO’s best-selling HLT series, the HLT-960, was developed. With feedback from customers and continuous research, development, and upgrading, the HTL series has kept improving on machine performance, optimizing its productivity, enhancing its efficiency, and refining its filling mechanics. The later series generations, models HLT-700, HLT-700XL, HLT-700DL, and HLT-700U, all received excellent reviews in the market for quality and efficiency.

  •  

  • 1989 The first overseas agent was acquired. By now there are over 20 agent locations established across three continents

    Once ANKO’s equipment started selling in the international food market, customers from various countries loved them and agents took notice. Agents can also provide immediate local support and quality services and equipment. From 1989, we began working with reliable agents overseas. ANKO now has cooperating agents in Asian, Middle Eastern, and European countries.

  •  

  • 1990 The Indian market serves as a starting point for crossing into the global ethnic food industry

    With India’s nearly 1.3 billion population and Indian immigrants around the world, the unique spice-infused goodness of Indian food had spread everywhere. Our Indian customers requested automated equipment for the insatiable food market demands, and the broad local frozen food market had Chairman Robert Ouyoung visiting India personally many times. He also joined local exposition businesses to learn market movements, and successfully met the Indian customer’s requirement to develop machines that produce several traditional Indian foods such as the popular Indian street food samosa, sweet rasgullas and gulab jamums, and the common staples chapatti, puri, paratha, nankeen, and lachha paratha, one after another.

  •  

  • 1991 “ANKO Food Machine Co., Ltd.” was officially founded

    Developing and releasing for sales various food equipment machines and expanding to overseas markets, ANKO had become a food equipment manufacturer. To establish ANKO’s role in the food equipment market and to give customers a clearer understanding of ANKO’s company features, “ANKO Industrial Co., Ltd.” was officially renamed “ANKO Food Machine Co., Ltd..”

  •  

  • 1992 The first overseas plant was established, targeting global ethnic food machine manufacturing

    After accumulating a few years of experience in overseas markets, Chairman Robert Ouyoung found the ethnic food machine markets in East Europe, North America, South America, Southeast Asia, and Africa to have considerable potential, and so decided to advance towards the goal of becoming the world’s largest ethnic food machine manufacturer. To support the giant demand for manufacturing, ANKO’s first overseas plant “Ningbo ANKO Food Machinery Co., Ltd.” was established in China. In 1993, the second overseas plant “Ningbo Homelife Food Machinery Co., Ltd.” was established for professional manufacturing of machine parts, finishing, and assembling, thus achieving the goal for largest ethnic food machine manufacturer in the world.

  •  

  • 1997 ANKO launches best-selling SD series encrusting and forming machines

    In 1997, ANKO developed the first generation of the SD series, SD-89, which received much attention once it launched. Based on customer requests and improvement suggestions from agents in various countries, as well as adjustments to accommodate each country’s local ethnic food manufacturing processes, the series continued to upgrade from the first generation SD-97A, SD-97B, and SD-97N, to subsequently introduced models SD-97W and SD-97SS. Not only is the machine’s productivity adjustable to production demand, its product size range is flexible and can be used for a wide variety of filling types. It also effectively reduces manual labor and improves customers’ return on investment, so became another of ANKO’s long-time bestsellers.

  •  

  • 1998 Extended exploration to specialty baked goods, meat and fishery product processing machines, and turnkey equipment planning

    How the economic value added (EVA) for fresh produce and food ingredients can be enhanced and transformed into high-economic value products that increase sales while also creating job opportunities and market demand had become a much stressed-upon issue by many agricultural and livestock countries. ANKO had accumulated food manufacturing experience through expertise in various ethnic food manufacturing, was able to customize products, and could extend the experience and developing capacity towards creating new food products together with customers. From here on out we started to expand the scope and applications of machinery equipment, and provided turnkey planning services.

  •  

  • 2013 New global headquarters combining plant and office was established, introducing 5S to improve overall inclusive service quality

    ANKO had served customers from over 100 countries, and as the service regions expanded, decided to establish a brand-new global headquarters to determine the company’s sustainable operations and development. The headquarters floorspace was increased from 500 ping to 3000 ping, and contained a complete environment for food machine testing. Customers visiting the plant can see many machine models demonstrating and producing sample foods on site, which give the customers a comprehensive and holistic product turnkey project experience.

    The plant also introduced the 5S management used by large Japanese car manufacturers: sort (SEIRI), set in order (SEITON), shine (SEISO), standardize (SEIKETSU), and self-discipline (SHITSUKE). By reproducing Japanese corporates’ impeccable work spirit and environment, the plant production efficiency and manufacturing quality were improved.

  •  

  • 2014 Service location in America was established, providing direct sales service to customers in the American markets

    The Americas, which are the farthest distance from Taiwan, has diverse ethnicities and a massive, varied ethnic food market, so market demands are urgent. To satisfy customers’ rapid machine purchasing requirements, a service location was established in 2014 in California, USA, which offers support including machine testing and immediate repair and maintenance. Customers in the Americas can avoid the impacts of long-distance traveling and vast time difference while enjoying ANKO’s quality service.

  •  

  • 2019 Moving towards the next 40 years, a new corporate identity is announced

    Under the leadership of Chairman Robert Ouyoung and General Manager Richard Ouyang, and with over 40 years of expertise in food machinery equipment, the team has continued to overcome industry constraints and set sights on the overseas global market. During the past years, with unceasing efforts to introduce systemic resources of all kinds, our brand is now successfully established as a benchmark business in the international market. Bearing a new vision for sustainable operations, “Taste of tradition, pioneer in production,” as well as “five main core service concepts” to reinforce brand commitments, we are determined to lead the global food equipment industry towards all new prospects.
