Tailor – made solutions for storing your apples


A.L.B. Consulting, pioneers in the preservation and storage of fruit. Our way of working and acting differs from traditional consulting firms. From planning to designing technically mature projects, we also provide advice and technical support. In addition to the training of your technicians, remote control monitoring, we also visit the storehouse on a regular basis to support the storage technicians. We train them at the same time to convey and pass on our knowledge gained over many years in a practical and simple way. We have been working in this sector for many years and have gained valuable experience over time. Storage has changed dramatically in recent years and requires more and more attention. The quality standards are high and the associated energy costs play an important role. Storage failures mean financial losses and are often not compensable. Our company is based in South Tyrol, the largest closed apple growing area in Europe in the north of Italy. We have been working for more than 25 years as storage - cooling technicians in one of the largest companies in South Tyrol.

Mr. Walter, specializes in the refrigeration, electrical engineering and the automation sector, and Mr. Terzer specializes in Post-Harvest and CA (controlled atmosphere) engineering are the owners of A.L.B. Consulting.

In 2015, we laid the foundation for our company. The basic idea was to share our acquired knowledge and know-how with others.

Projecting/planning and implementation of new storage rooms, CA- facilities and cooling facilities

Our many years of experience enable us to harmonize technically mature projects with a lot of practical experience. We develop and plan the right tenders according to the latest technical standards for every component in the store-house. The entire project planning is based on many factors, such as: varieties, climatic conditions, organic or conventional cultivation, storage methods and many other important factors. After you can send our tenders to the potential companies. We can advice you on various components of the project. Basically - all work has to be done according to our project. Our second step is that we can help you with the implementation of the project and clarify the construction process on site with the various companies. We ensure that all work is carried out according to our plans. Last but not least, we personally conduct the final project audit.

Only a technical and efficient planning creates the necessary basis for the best possible outsourcing results.
In recent years we have completed several projects for the most prestigious producers in Italy. Our last project was in Verona, a 30-room storehouse, it is one of the most modern storehouses in Europe. The highest technology and maximum efficiency distinguish this project from any other.

We carry out an on - site inspection where the entire storage rooms, refrigeration and CA facilities are evaluated. We then analyze all previous records and data to get an insight into your previous way of working. Finally we will present you with our results by means of a report and point out various possibilities of optimization. If you decide to accept our suggestions, we will gladly assist you in their implementation.
