At DeJong, we solve real problems.
During the past 15+ years of experience in building and managing food and pharmaceutical process plants, Michael DeJong has built a team of the best Sanitary process industry consultants and engineers with which he has worked. We’re designed from the ground up to make your sanitary process successful.
When you work with DeJong, you will experience cross-industry problem-solving at the highest level. From basic non-food or raw ingredients to USP-certified aseptic pharmaceutical processes, we have the expertise and experience to hit your timeline without breaking your budget.
Our Owner and Founder, Michael DeJong, did his industry internship working with one of the largest egg processing companies in the US in developing their first egg membrane separation plant. After building 6 such plants and developing many patented ‘firsts’, Michael moved to the membrane separation and filtration field, establishing vast cross-industry experience and relationships, before moving on to found DeJong Consulting and Operations, LLC.
Michael DeJong is an inventor and problem solver at heart. Our team reflects his passion for answering the toughest process riddles. Our best work comes into play when the problems are the most complicated to solve. We bring a Midwestern farmer’s mentality and grit to the table; we never leave a challenge unmet, we never back down, and we never quit.
Our mission is to meet gaps in the sanitary design and installation industry. We do this by providing the option for turnkey process plant builds – from green-field to fully-trained, competent staff running finished products effectively. All our services are a-la-carte, so we are built to scale into the gaps in your process as needed without pushing your existing partners to the side. Our goal is to make everyone in the chain successful.
Each client that we work with has the goal of producing a quality product. Uptime and efficiency are equally important. We start by understanding your unique situation and business constraints. We then recommend products and systems that deliver the best quality end product with the highest efficiency and uptime. We understand the regulations in each industry and follow best practices to ensure a premium return on your investment. This also means planning for quick, lean building processes that optimize the install path for the fastest return to production.
With vast experience in many industries, we are often able to solve seemingly complex issues with standard offerings from unrelated applications. Something that is common in pharma may solve a dairy problem, while something a brewery commonly uses could be modified to meet a challenge in a human nutraceutical process. We are a trusted equipment sourcing partner who has no specific loyalty to any brand. Our choices are dictated by best practices and application – and informed by your preferences. If you have brands that you believe give you the best chance of success, we will work with you to utilize those brands as priority resources.
Racing globalization, time is truly money. We are scalable and flexible, ready and waiting to meet the most aggressive timelines. Of course, restraints exist, but the challenge of overcoming them is why we show up to work every day. We source from new, refurbished, and used markets, allowing us to get you to your contract fulfillment more quickly than waiting through the current supply chain and manufacturing delays that plague our industry.
Green initiatives to reduce power consumption and minimize carbon footprint are at the top of our considerations – efficiency means savings in monthly overhead costs as well as sometimes qualifying for tax and environmental incentives. Additionally, planning for lower chemical consumption and responsible water usage means that costs are controlled and city environmental restraints are exceeded. We use the highest-quality stainless steel products to ensure a longer lifespan and lower carbon footprint. The longer we keep your equipment running, the less waste it will produce
We take your vision and put the pencil work in to make it a reality. From site evaluations for new plants, upgrading existing plants, and replacing a specific piece of equipment, to inventing new processes for that industry edge, we bring answers to the table. Our team works alongside your team as an extension of your ownership mentality. We take great pride in truly partnering with our clients from dry powder ingredient packaging to finished products
Growth comes with challenges and costs. We take the guesswork out of the process by bringing our experienced engineers into the equation. With hard data and a proven track record, we answer the difficult questions about equipment integration. Most importantly, though, we deal with both scaling and technology integration as native parts of the conversation. Upgrading today without being mindful of tomorrow is not our game. We want you to be successful now AND later. We provide answers today that don’t compromise your tomorrow.
