    Dear Valued Customer:

    Lyco Manufacturing, Inc. is working diligently to maintain our productivity at 100% capacity to meet your needs. We realize we have an obligation to support all of our customers that are doing their utmost to Feed the World in these uncertain times.

    Lyco’s belief of Providing a Safe Work Environment, with a Quality Product, On Time and at a Profit along with our beliefs in God, Family, People and Business in that Order have been a tremendously effective guide for us during this crisis.

    A few of the actions we have taken to ensure the safety of our associates are:

    • We stopped all airline travel.
    • We have limited work related automobile travel to “essential” travel as we evaluate each trip prior to dispatching our associates.
    • We have split our manufacturing workforce into 3 shifts to enhance social distancing.
    • We have implemented a work from home effort, currently many of our associates are working from home.
    • Of course, we have implemented all the hygiene standards as recommended by the CDC.
    • Procurement is working with all of our vendors to assure we can receive the required components to meet our production needs.

    As you all know the situation changes minute by minute as we continue to monitor and adapt our plan to meet those challenges while maintaining our goal to maintain full production to meet your needs.

    With the uncertainty of the situation we are asking our customer to help us, help you by streamlining the Process.

    1. If we have a Master Supply Agreement, it is our intent to use those agreement for Purchase Order T&C with the understanding that this is a time to look at Delay Clause and Force Marjorie clauses.
    2. With any order we will provide you with expected shipping dates, but they cannot be guaranteed because of world conditions and we’ll inform you immediately if anything changes.
    3. In 2019 Lyco reviewed our Standard Terms of Sale to make them fair to both parties. It is our request that if you do not have a Master Supply Agreement with Lyco that we abide by the Lyco Terms of Sale as this will reduce the administration time of negotiating complex Terms and Conditions.

    Thank you for your assistance on this matter and please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.

    William Zittel | President

  • Water Reuse System

    Lyco’s Water Reuse System can save money, cut cleaning and maintenance time, and reduce consumption of water resources — up to 15 million gallons per year. This revolutionary system removes suspended solids and reuses water from any slaughter process — poultry or red meat — and returns this water back to the main process. The system’s small footprint makes it ideal for many water reuse applications. A 200 GPM saving can return more than $150,000 a year.

    New Sanitary Zero Maintenance Screens feature covers that open for full access, Clean-In-Place system with spray balls and rapid-change dual canister filters with automated purging.
    Systems are available for 50 gpm – 400 gpm.

  • Clean-Flow Blanchers®

    Clean-Flow® Blanchers / Cookers came to market in 2007 and they are called that because depending upon the product they run, they are cleaned-up in minutes compared to the many hours for competitive designs. This allows faster change-over.

    They are called “The best pasta, rice and vegetable cookers in the world!” because they contain patented water agitation that breaks up heavy dense loads of product and keeps them separated and suspended in motion so each particle of food is treated exactly the same way.

    Spaghetti to filled pastas are uniformly and thoroughly cooked. Sticking and clumping are totally eliminated which increases yield by as much 10-15% compared batch cook-quench-chill systems or older rotary drum blancher designs. They are used in our continuous (not batch) Cook / Quench / Chill system which is far superior to batch systems.

    Clean-Flow® Blanchers save labor, water, energy and reduce maintenance cost to nearly zero — after years of running.

    We make 30″, 40″, 50″ and 60″ diameter models. CONTACT US to run your products in our Laboratory and we’ll show you what perfect quality looks like!
