Green Bay, Wis.-based Hart Design & Manufacturing announced a new strategic alliance and partnership with Modena, Italy-based MilkyLAB. Known for providing its partners with extensive knowledge of how to produce traditional Italian mozzarella cheese, MilkyLAB guarantees the best assistance and ultimate professionalism when it comes to choosing the right technologies for different manufacturing partners such as Hart.

“We are very excited to partner with such a great, innovative company. MilkyLAB is family-owned like Hart, and we share the same family-oriented values,” said Timm Schaetz, CEO, Hart. “With this partnership, we can round out our complete product line offering and further offer our customers a one-vendor approach for all their cheese processing and packaging projects.”

From cheese vats, molding machines and stretchers to robust production lines for spherical mozzarella, string cheese and pizza cheese, offerings from MilkyLAB are available exclusively only through Hart in North America, the company said.

“Hart is very excited to partner with MilkyLAB. This partnership will significantly increase our offerings to our customers, as well as expand and complement the existing Hart lines,” said Todd Delebreau, vice president of sales, Hart. “We have noticed a demand for these lines of equipment, but with little North American representation or service. Hart is proud to fill this void.”
