Sun Valley Packing (CA): A step forward in peach handling with Unitec Technological Solutions

PRESS RELEASE

Thanks to the strong connection with the market in which the UNITEC Group has been operating for 100 years, the Research & Development team has designed and developed a new, innovative solution to meet the requirements of the customer Sun Valley Packing, a leading American grower, packer and distributor of stone fruit (peaches, nectarines, plums) based in Reedley (California). The project comes from a brand-new idea, different from the US standards of the industry.

For the UNITEC team, the ability to listen and to find the right solution have been key elements in creating a strong relationship with the customer based on trust. As confirmed by Casey Jones, CEO of Sun Valley Packing, where UNITEC has recently started up a major peach handling line: “The feeling with UNITEC has been overwhelmingly positive. Great group of individuals, very family like company, even though it’s a quite large company, it feels like they’re in your backyard, even if we were working on continents thousands of miles apart”, and he adds that “what really solidified the project was the visit to Italy, meeting the team out there, meeting the engineers and then walking on that campus. That’s something to be very proud of there!”

Based on this trust, the UNITEC team developed a new solution to meet the needs of Sun Valley Packing.

“UNITEC came forward with a new idea of how to process stone fruit. They didn’t come here offering a new sorter or a new technology. They came with the idea of a new solution, unheard of in the stone fruit industry”, says Sergio Chavez, Chief Operations Officer.

The 8 lanes sorter Unical 600, equipped with Peach Vision 3 quality selection technology, processes more than 200,000 fruits per hour. Thanks to the innovative Peach Vision 3 external quality selection system, Sun Valley Packing can now detect and remove fruits with defects such as soft, apical damage, peel damage, as well as sort by weight, optical size and color, with the aim of selecting them according to homogeneous characteristics.

The project also includes 4 packing lines, dedicated to different pack-styles (trays, boxes, bags, clamshells) with a strong focus on packing trays of various sizes, especially the “consumer” size, more and more requested by US retailers.

This solution, developed by UNITEC, is designed to facilitate the filling of trays thus allowing the operators to work in a more ergonomic position compared to traditional methods, with a substantial increase of productivity.

The line is then equipped with an automatic palletizing system, capable of picking and stacking entire layers of boxes automatically thus allowing great flexibility, and with the UNISTRAP technology for automatic placing of corner-boards and strapping of pallets.

The Traceability System, entirely developed by UNITEC, completes the line and allows Sun Valley Packing to track the product from the dumping of the bins, all the way to the palletization thus reducing labor and time required for lot change operations, while monitoring the production in real time and automatically communicating with the ERP system of the customer the results of each grower lot.

Such innovative systems with strong automation made by UNITEC, that include the anthropomorphic robot for the handling of empty boxes, like the one installed at Sun Valley Packing, provide many benefits to packing houses: greater efficiency and efficacy thanks to cost reduction – up to 50% (as in the case of Sun Valley Packing) thus getting round the problems of labor shortage and making operations smoother, with the aim of being more effective and efficient while increasing the return to the growers.

Customer satisfaction is the beating heart of UNITEC and this is confirmed by customers: “It is really a team unlike any team I’ve ever seen that the UNITEC Group has put together. They all have one goal and that’s to make the equipment work and to satisfy the customer!” – Casey Jones and Sergio Chavez from Sun Valley Packing conclude.

SUN VALLEY, CALIF. (KABC) -- Southern California has gotten a lot of rain.

But in Alicia Gonzalez's Sun Valley neighborhood, she said they've been relatively safe when it comes to flooding.

"It'll only last for about maybe 20 to 30 minutes, and then the water will go down. So, it's perfect. It's not a problem like it used to be," Gonzalez said.

She's said her parents purchased the house where she lives back in the 1980s, and she's been in and out all her life.

The flooding used to be so bad, one time a neighbor rode down the street in a canoe. Her father would use his van to help students in the neighborhood cross the street so they could get to school.

About ten years ago, she helped rally her community together to secure funding for a retrofitting project. The project was run by multiple partners like Los Angeles City, Los Angeles County and non-profits.

Flooding and water resources for Southern California

She said she remembers organizers going door-to-door to try to get the neighborhood involved, and she became friends with one of them.

"And then from there, we just kept talking. And I'm a big mouth, I'm very friendly," she said. "So, I just kind of started getting involved."

The project included infrastructure like:

Carlos Moran from the Council for Watershed Health, an LA County-based non-profit that helped with this project, said the area is designed to hold millions of gallons of water a year.

"That water...is being infiltrated, is being treated and is becoming water supply for future generations," said Moran.

"Projects like that are examples of green infrastructure projects where agencies, government agencies, philanthropy, and nonprofits, and residents can come together to take active control of their neighborhoods," he said.

Climate non-profit First Street Foundation estimates that in Southern California counties...as many as 429,000 homes and businesses have an 80% or better chance of flooding at least once by 2053.

Up to 90% of those properties may not have flood insurance, according to data from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Mike Peterson, the Deputy Commissioner on Climate and Sustainability at the California Department of Insurance said the flood insurance "protection gap" is "a risk awareness issue."

Many might not know that they live in a flood risk area, or that flood insurance is an add-on to regular property insurance, not a part of it.

FEMA manages nearly all flood policies in the U.S., requiring them in neighborhoods they have classified as flood risk areas.

But experts said those FEMA flood risk maps may not accurately depict flood risk.

"FEMA maps flooding, mostly from rivers and streams and coastal flooding, they don't map flooding from rainfall," said Jochen Schubert, a research specialist at UC Irvine with a focus on flood hazards.

He and his colleagues have developed their own ways of modeling flood risk in the LA area and he said there's been change in the land development since the FEMA maps were built. More concrete, for example:

"The rainfall directly falls onto these surfaces and very quickly moves from streets and pavements around homes into the river channel," Schubert explained.

"And so that rainfall accumulates really quickly in these channels and water levels build up very fast and usually much higher at a much higher level than if there was a lot of green space," he said.

Because many of the FEMA maps were created years or even decades ago, "they don't capture these changes," Schubert said.

Schubert, who is familiar with the First Street Foundation maps, said the model includes flooding from rainfall, unlike the FEMA maps.

"Hats off to them, they developed a method to model flood hazards across the whole nation. That's a very complicated task," Schubert said.

First Street Foundation researchers say their flood models capture 2.2 times as many properties with significant (a 1-in-100 year or greater) annual flood risk as those in FEMA's comparable flood hazard areas.

By First Street Foundation's count, about 9.8 million of its 17.7 million significant flood risk properties are outside of FEMA flood zones nationwide.

As a result, First Street Foundation researchers believe many of those property owners have received no information from FEMA and may not fully understand - or underestimate - their future flood risk.

The UCI Flood Lab models are different from the First Street models, mostly because of the fine detail of maps they use to model, said Schubert.

First Street's models "apply to different kinds of environments," whereas, "we tend to focus on places like L.A., for example, or Miami-Dade County where we know we can find very fine resolution topographic data."

Whether you compare to the UCI or First Street Foundation flood risk predictions, Schubert said FEMA is "likely under-estimating the number of properties" at risk for flooding.

Peterson, from the Department of Insurance, said not only are the FEMA maps potentially outdated, "but these are risks that are accelerating to a certain degree because of climate events."

Mark Pestrella, Director of Los Angeles County Department of Public Works said the combination of more development, more concrete and more rain increases runoff and flood risk.

"And although we've been able to deal with that over the years. what we're seeing with climate is the potential, at least locally, for some of those interior drainage systems to not be able to handle the amount of flooding and more rain that's coming," Pestrella said.

"And that definitely is a challenge when we're trying to address water quality, water supply and flood risk," Pestrella continued.

All three of those issues can be addressed by creating more parks and green spaces, experts said.

"The current state is we take rainwater, and we create super highways, you know, drainage systems that take that water away from us as soon as possible to protect human life," explained Moran from the Council for Watershed Health.

"But nowadays, we need to think about how can we collect that water? How can we harvest it? How can we maintain it and hold it close to us, so that we can increase our water supply so that we can manage a work with that water to provide irrigation," he continued.

This isn't an issue that can be fixed in "a year's time," according to Moran.

"This is something that takes many years to be able to address," he said.

And experts say it will likely take longer, unless local officials, non-profits and community leaders educate and listen to residents about the risks and the solutions.

"If there's any time to really get involved, and to really get to know and educate oneself about your environment and flood risk and flood issues and the connection between rain and people, it's now," Moran said.

"It should have been done before, right? When the city was built. But they didn't have the information," he continued.

Mark Pestrella, from LA County Public Works, said spreading information to as many people as possible is one of the goals of the department going forward.

"Educating the cities, educating their flood plain managers, and then all the way down to the residential property owner. What is my flood risk? What does it look like?...What is our plan when it rains in LA?"

And even for researchers studying flood risk, community input and education is important.

"We reach out to decision makers and stakeholders, and we run focus groups where we ask questions," said Jochen Schubert from UCI.

"We sort of gain confidence that our model reflects what people see in neighborhoods, but also that we are addressing the needs of decision makers and stakeholders...in case they want to use our data for decision making purposes and adaptation plans and so on," he continued.

In 2018, the county passed Measure W, a parcel tax that funds the Safe Clean Water Program which invests $280 million annually into stormwater capture projects and programs.

So far, the program has funded more than 300 projects and studies. More than 200 of those projects improve flood protection, according to the program's dashboard.

"We are cutting up the pavement all over LA. County," said Pestrella. "I know it sounds simplified, but that's truly what we're doing. We're actually either diverting to a place where the water can get in the ground or we're opening up, at the neighborhood level, places where water can go into the ground at their street level and instead of running off to the ocean being wasted."

But there's more.

At the end of 2022, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion directing the County's Public Works department and Chief Sustainability Officer to assess flood infrastructure.

Pestrella said as a part of that there will be a series of seminars at city and local community levels communicating the department's findings.

"I really do encourage property owners in Los Angeles County to take advantage of their tax dollars by getting in touch with us. And also following up with us on these seminars that are coming, and these education moments down to the community level about their flood risk and what they can do to create a more resilient LA county and a more resilient neighborhood," Pestrella said.

If you're looking for ways to harden your home and family against flood risk, Pestrella said LA County Public Works will do a virtual or in-person assessment of your home's risk.

Carlos Moran said one of the easiest things you can do in your neighborhood to mitigate flooding is plant a tree.

"When it rains, that tree holds that water, it slows it down, it spreads it where it needs to be spread," Moran said.

Back in Sun Valley, Gonzalez said she loves all the trees and plants they have because of past community efforts.

"We feel like we're in the mountains," she said.

And, she encourages other communities educate themselves and dive into projects like the one that transformed her street.

"If they have the opportunity to get the help I say...do it. It's an amazing project, do it," Gonzalez said.

Rare Sun Valley Asset Sells for $40 Million

A rare Sun Valley development site situated on 6.9 acres has sold for $40 million.

The buyer, Epicenter Landcorp, has acquired the 11660 Tuxford St. asset, marking the completion of the group’s third real estate investment in the last 12 months.

“A meaningful purchase price reduction, seller financing on desirable terms, and the assembly of a 13-acre industrial property in the middle of Sun Valley made the acquisition of 11660 Tuxford very attractive,” Vasco Noya di Lannoy, chief investment of Epicenter Landcorp, said in a statement.

Colliers’ North Los Angeles industrial agents David Harding, Greg Geraci, Matt Dierckman and Billy Walk brokered the deal on behalf of the buyer. Raines Feldman LLP facilitated legal considerations for Epicenter in the transaction. Brad Luster of Major Properties represented the undisclosed seller.

The site’s features include 300,900 square feet of land with 73,000 square feet of building space, LA M1 zoning with land use for warehouse and light industrial and a secure gated lot.

“The 11660 Tuxford St. site presents a rare opportunity for Epicenter Landcorp to expand their portfolio in a vibrant industrial market,” Harding said. “Not only is the property ready to be leased in an active market with a 0.5% vacancy rate, but it also provides the potential for future development, making it truly a one-of-a-kind investment.”

The Sun Valley property stands in the tight submarket of East San Fernando Valley, which saw 0.6% vacancy in the fourth quarter of last year, compared to the same vacancy in the overall San Fernando Valley and 0.9% in Los Angeles County, according to Colliers data. Asking rent for industrial buildings in East San Fernando Valley held at $1.71 a square foot — the same rate as the greater San Fernando Valley — while Los Angeles asking rent was $1.80 in the fourth quarter. While the asking rent in the East San Fernando Valley was flat with the third quarter of last year, it was up from $1.55 in the first quarter of last year and $1.64 in the second quarter.

Colliers has been busy. The brokerage announced on Feb. 7 that it recruited a longtime CBRE Group Inc. capital markets broker in greater Los Angeles, naming Sterling Champ as executive vice president for Colliers in Glendale.

Champ specializes in corporate capital markets, sale-leaseback, build-to-suit, acquisition and disposition deals as well as lease accounting, deal structuring and strategy services. He has transacted deals totaling more than $8 billion in value since starting in real estate in the 1980s. His clients have included high-profile firms including MetLife, New York Life and Goldman Sachs as well as the California State Teachers’ Retirement System. He also helped form the net-lease property group at CBRE, according to the company.

Champ started in the real estate industry working for Vantage Cos. in New Jersey in the 1980s. After the firm experienced financial problems, Champ and another partner bought the business and started the management and leasing company Bridgewood Properties. Bridgewood was sold to Koll Real Estate Services, which CBRE acquired in 1997. Two years later, Champ relocated to Los Angeles to work for LoopNet and in 2001, Champ moved over to CBRE, where he had been working until the Colliers hire.

“Our momentum of attracting world-class talent continues with the addition of Sterling to our business,” Jodie Poirier, executive managing director and greater Los Angeles market leader at Colliers, said in a statement. “Sterling’s corporate capital markets expertise will add immediate value to our greater Los Angeles business, including our growing private equity practice.”

Tropical Storm Hilary poured rain across Southern California throughout Sunday night, leaving millions of people at flood risk, thousands of homes without power and the country's second-largest school district closed.

The first tropical storm to hit the region in nine decades dropped as much as 7 inches of rainwater in some mountain regions and up to 4 inches in lower lying areas.

Early Monday, officials reclassified the storm as a post-tropical cyclone. The center of the storm is expected to travel north through Nevada today. Officials in Las Vegas warned of wind gusts of up to 75 miles per hour. Flash flood warnings will remain in effect there until 6:30 a.m. PDT.

The storm traveled from northern Baja California in Mexico into the United States, drenching California along the coast, in the mountains, and in the Coachella Valley, home to the desert city of Palm Springs.

The National Weather Service cautioned that heavy rain had passed in some areas, such as Ventura County, but lighter rain still posed potentially deadly threats. Just after midnight, it reported that rain was falling at a rate of 0.5 to 1 inch of rain per hour in the San Gabriel Mountains in Los Angeles, and that rock and mudslides were occurring.

"Our message today remains the same. Stay safe. Stay informed. Stay home," said Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass at a Sunday news conference ahead of the rain's peak. She said she'd spoken with Vice President Kamala Harris, who offered federal support.

The Los Angeles Unified School District canceled all classes and before and after school programs on Monday. "Our school district covers 700 square miles. There will be impact in some areas," said Alberto Carvalho, the district's superintendent. "We cannot inspect those areas, those schools ... so the prudent thing to do to avoid harm ... is to call off schools for [Monday]."

Carvalho said he expects class to resume as normal Tuesday morning.

Flash flood watches in Los Angeles County remained in effect until 3 a.m. Monday PDT. A flash flood warning for parts of San Bernardino and Inyo Counties — east and north of LA — was in effect until 5 a.m.

Southern California Edison, a regional electric provider, reported more than a hundred power outages that left some 20,000 customers without service.

In the Coachella Valley, a desert stretch of inland California unaccustomed to downpours, several cities reported that 911 services were down. One of them, Palm Springs had recorded more than 3 inches of rain Sunday evening.

Part of Interstate 10, which cuts through the valley west of Joshua National Tree National Park, were closed because of flooding and debris, according to the California Department of Transportation.
