20 December, 2023

As we come to the end of the year, CATALYTIC GENERATORS is proud to have celebrated its 50th anniversary. Looking back, they have made significant advancements in the fruit industry, driven by its commitment to innovation and progress. The team has worked hard to develop significant ethylene application technologies and solutions that have helped them stay ahead of the curve.

Catalytic Generator would like to thank its customers and partners for their continued support and trust in its brand. The company is excited to continue its journey towards providing fruit ripeners the quality ethylene products they need and look forward to another 50 years of success.


A glimpse into history

This is how it all began with this humble and funny looking little device. Once the concept was validated and Catalytic Generators' fruit ripening equipment was embraced by customers, significant improvements were made.

A bit more industrial, in the late 70's Catalytic Generators made its ethylene generator easier to use. It was "Easy"... soon the company was creating a brand.

Soon thereafter, the Easy-Ripe® premiered. With a stainless-steel cabinet making it beautiful and durable, under the hood is top technology for clean and efficient ethylene production.

Today, Catalytic Generators offers several types of generators and systems, each with their own unique advantage in the ripening or degreening process.


A Salute to the Man

The biggest reason Catalytic is 50 years old is Gene Akins.
