  • Paul Mueller Company President Talks Global Business
  •  you’ve led a growing company before, you know that expanding a business outside of city limits comes with all new rules and regulations. The list grows as you expand to more cities, and if you cross state lines, you’ll be greeted with even more challenges. But what if you think bigger? What do you do if you want to expand your business internationally?

    To answer this question, we turned to Paul Mueller Co., one of Springfield’s widest-reaching companies whose products are used in more than 100 countries. But it’s not just the items developed by Paul Mueller Co. that are making the journey overseas. Although the company is headquartered and has manufacturing in Springfield, it also has a manufacturing facility in Iowa and three additional facilities—a sales facility, a service and refurbishing facility and a manufacturing facility—in The Netherlands. “In the 1950s, we started making milk coolers,” says President and CEO David Moore. “That has been one of our most successful, longest-running products, and it’s the product that led us to most of our international activities.”

  • Paul Mueller Company Installing Milk Collection Centers in Uganda
  • Emerging dairy sectors in developing African countries cannot cool raw milk on-farm due to the lack of reliable electricity. Often the quality of the evening milk is lost because it doesn’t survive the overnight heat.

    A lack of knowledge of post-harvest practices combined with poor infrastructure and no storage facilities result in at least 40 percent milk waste. This creates a lost income opportunity for farmers and a growing gap between milk supply in African countries and milk demand.

    Two companies, the World Bicycle Relief and the Paul Mueller Company, are making efforts to advance milk cooling in Africa by improving milk delivery, collection centers and on-farm storage.

  • Technology Shaping Dairy Farmers Lives
  • Dairy Farmers know that physical demands of running the farm can take a toll throughout the years. The constant hunching over, reaching out, hauling, lifting - over time that repetition can be felt by the dairy farmer in his or her joints.

    In a recent study from the Journal of Agromedicine, 84% of Swedish and German milkers surveyed, reported Muscoskeletal Symptoms (MSS) in at least one body part. Highest prevalence was reported in the lower back, shoulder, and neck. (Journal of Agromedicine Volume 21, Issue 1 2016)

    An update in technology in the 1960’s, automatic takeoffs, relieved some of the farmer’s plight. However even with the monumental advancements, milking continues to prove itself as a very physically demanding profession.

  • Springfield Brew Co. and Paul Mueller Partner for Growth
  • Springfield Brewing Co. officials yesterday began a roughly $1 million expansion project with the installation of eight new stainless steel fermenting tanks at its expanded 305 S. Market Ave. facility.

    SBC Managing Partner Bryan Bevel said the last of the new tanks arrived this morning and should be operational in about two weeks.
