About CFS

The Best Labor-Saving Solutions, Hands Down

Computerway Food Systems provides purpose-built, computer-controlled weighing, labeling and tracking systems for Food Processing companies. CFS systems are engineered to be integrated into each customer’s production environment using discrete elements of professional services, hardware and software.

Computerway Food Systems products are engineered as rapidly-deployable, high-reliability SYSTEM solutions.   The devices, software, and services offered by CFS are all available individually, but they are optimized as part of CFS integrated systems solutions.

CFS system solutions target two very different goal-sets within the Food Processing Industry.

  • Our Sizing Solutions are highly-specialized electronic systems dedicated to Poultry Processing operations.  CFS WOLF ISS and WOLF Solo control systems represent the most technically advanced form of weighing and sorting poultry products on multiple high-speed overhead conveyor systems. These systems control the distribution or disassembly (automatic cutting) of processed birds based on weight, grade, and various production-related variables. ​

Our Story

Built on a passion for engineering, designing, and optimizing, CFS has grown from a small home business to the incredible organization it is today. The company's president, Bill Altenpohl, grew up in the poultry industry and the time spent working with his father through his younger years fostered a love for developing innovative solutions and applying them to the food processing business.

Computerway Food Systems began under the original name of Chickway Systems, Inc. in 1986 when Bill began a partnership with AutoSystems, Ltd. of the United Kingdom. Throughout the years, the company has evolved to be 100% U.S.-owned and focuses on the development of overhead sizing, grading, and weighing lines, as well as fully integrated production and inventory tracking systems for food processing plants. 

CFS prides itself in remaining a small, intimate company that is committed and loyal to our customers. The relationships we have built are an integral and key part of what makes Computerway Food Systems exceptional.
