an innovative hydraulic extraction unit which satisfactorily met the new market requirements, saw MORILLON embark on fresh activities.
At the beginning of the 1980’s, the company developed a hydraulically-operated extractor which met all the new storage requirements
Christened the “HYDRASCREW” after a distant cousin of the 50’s named “SPIROGYRE”, this extractor, much prized by ANVAR, enabled MORILLON not only to gain an enviable place in the world of animal feed but also to forge ahead in other fields: the wood and waste treatment industries, vegetable oil production, and more recently cement plants. Paradoxically, the HYDRASCREW caused MORILLON to revive its origins, as the extractor met with some success with the modern flour mills for the storage of bran and middlings. Unfortunately, the crisis of the early 90’s in the animal feed sector damaged the company, already weakened by the massive changes. In the face of financial difficulties, Morillon concentrated on its new activity and in 1995 reduced its workforce to 25 persons.
To revive the company’s fortunes, Théo, who had never hesitated to look overseas to present his products, with only a scant knowledge of English and with his son Laurent,who joined the company in 1984, placed his faith in international development.
