Bettcher IndustriesProduct Branding

Launching an engineering breakthrough product

Bettcher Industries is the world’s manufacturing leader in powered hand-held cutting and trimming tools used by meat and poultry processing plants.  The company pioneered the category in the early 1960s, and has spearheaded every technological advance in the category since then.

Bettcher’s latest innovation represents an engineering breakthrough.  The Quantum® Trimmer System incorporates major improvements in cutting blade technology, motor power and torque, plus ergonomic hand tool design.

The result is the most powerful and productive tool for meat trimming — one that delivers dramatically higher product yields, increased sales and better plant profits.

Important COVID-19 Announcement

At Mullin/Ashley, we’re very concerned about the well-being of our customers, employees, business partners and communities currently battling to control the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that effective Monday, March 23, 2020, all non-essential businesses in the state must close their offices.  A follow-up pronouncement on March 30 instituted further “stay-at-home” orders for Maryland residents.

We are complying with these mandates.  In fact, in anticipation of the Governor’s announcements, we had already taken steps to reduce our social footprint by setting up all Mullin/Ashley employees to work from home, with no interruption in the delivery of services.

In addition, travel activities by our staff have been severely curtailed since early March.

By taking these steps, we’re committed to continuing to provide our customers with the services they need, even as we work to reduce our social footprint.

We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and will take additional steps to minimize the risks from the COVID-19 virus, as needed.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work collectively to control the Coronavirus threat.
