3 Guys and an Idea

3X Technology uses the most advanced technology and design to produce high quality processing equipment and tailor made solutions for customers in the the food industry all over the world.

3X Technology was established in 1994 in Iceland. It was started by three local guys who wanted to stay in Ísafjörður but needed steady work. The name they originally chose was taken so instead they decided on the spot to be 3 x _____. Well they never came up with something so 3x stuck which was eventually turned into 3x Technology. In the early years the focus was on designing and producing processing equipment for the seafood industry in Iceland. Now 3X Technology offers a wide variety of equipment for companies in the food industry worldwide.They are the largest employer in Ísafjörður, with more than 50 employees. We got to visit the factory and see the whole process from design to product…

Our equipment is designed to fulfill the most stringent requirements for hygiene, freshness and product consistency.

This giant spiral is for a chilling and bleeding tank (watch video below). It is the biggest they have ever made and will have to break down the wall to get it out!
