    “The Summit itself has been a dream to work with, especially compared to our previous setup. The entire unit is built like a tank. Being able to see in detail how my changes are actually impacting the process of a batch is invaluable. I can't say enough how supportive the team has been throughout the entire process. Any time I have reached out, even for small stuff, it's evident how much the Parker team cares about taking care of their customers and machines."
    - Hannah Q, Pet Food Industry
