Eli expands reach into six countries

By Dairy News

It has been an exciting few months for Eli Innovation whose motivation to expand their market overseas has seen their latest delivery shipped to Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, ready for installation in December 2017.

This international installation exhibits Eli’s Automatic Cup Removers and Milk Meters in a prominent Middle Eastern family’s walk-through dairy parlour, in partnership with Daviesway.

Dairy farms in Abu Dhabi can milk up to three to four times a day, with some dairies milking up to 8000 cows.

Eli first attained an international market base in 2006, installing their equipment in dairy parlours in Indonesia, closely followed by another installation in India in 2007.

Since then, Eli has ventured further into the international market, carrying out installations in China and New Zealand.

Situated in Gippsland, Eli Innovation has developed automatic cup removers which are fully pluggable, allowing the farmer to maintain and service the equipment without calling out a technician.

Eli has installed about 10 000 products in dairy parlours throughout Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland and NSW.

Eli’s Milk Meter has seen consistent interest and instalments due to their unique design. Their milk meters can be affixed into existing dairy equipment to record the volume, duration and conductivity of each milking session.

This allows farmers to keep their existing investment in place with a low-cost upgrade into twice-daily production data.

Eli is the only Australian manufacturer of automatic cup removers and milk meters, which are developed in collaboration with local farmers.
