Liquid Consulting, Broader Than Liquid Food

When we joined forces with GTA in 2018, our automation department added skills and experience from many more applications. Including, but not limited to cement, marine applications, personal care products as well as MES and ERP integration.

Delivering An Exceptional Experience Is Our Calling

Word From Our Founder

I founded Liquid Consulting in 2006 to support a growing demand for commissioning of new liquid food processing systems in the Americas, and primarily Latin America. My hands-on experience, growing up in and around dairy plants and having worked for one of the leading OEMs of processing equipment in the liquid food industry, along with my passion, combining my understanding of the industry with my automation knowledge, quickly proved to be a great success. Within a short number of years what started as a one-man show, grew to a hand full of processing specialists that I “handpicked” based on their knowledge and attitude. This became the foundation of what was to become an organization for people who thrive on freedom.

 

Seeking a bigger vision: “Let’s use the experience we gain when commissioning and troubleshooting equipment to design systems and solutions that incorporate the many fixes, we have to come up with to remedy the root cause of the problem”. 

I brought Mathias Johansson on board as a quality assurance authority within the

liquid food industry, to lead Liquid Consulting’s Quality Performance Management

team. This allowed us to support customers throughout the life cycle of their

processing equipment. Continuing our ambition of being an agile partner in this

industry, we added the Digitalization department, led by Walney Luz, and

Process Engineering, led by Anders Bodin. This acquisition gave us the ability

to engineer, build and deliver the best processing solution to customers

seeking a vertical start up, hassle-free experience, and a lifetime of support.

Collaborating with Soufien Lachiheb and his dedicated team of highly trained

specialist their support is always available.

 

Finally, our industry and customer obsessed team is led by Marcelo Ferrer,

a veteran with over 25 years of experience in the food and beverage industry.

After 15 years of leading Liquid Consulting, I have passed on the baton in

confidence to Marcelo so that he continues leading our mission - making things

easier for liquid food producers to drive profitable growth.

Our History

Field service is the heart and soul of Liquid Consulting.

It is what drives us, and it is where and how we add the most value. In this sense, we operate quite differently from our competitors.

 

At many firms, to work in field service is a requirement before employees move elsewhere. It is not perceived as an especially appealing assignment, and employees are often eager to move to another role. We hire, train and retain people who love field service. Our people want to work here for the long term. They enjoy being in plants, working directly with clients and putting to work their deep knowledge of the liquid foods manufacturing process. To say this another way, our team has much more field experience than any other.
 

Inside the company, we have a phrase for describing the essential character of our company. It is “born onsite we are.” The origins of our firm go back to working in the field, seeing the unmet needs of both current and potential customers, and recruiting people who could join our team and help fill those needs.
