South Nyanza Sugar Company (Sony) Chief Executive Officer, Mr Paul Odola, said the equipment from South Africa will help the company re-position itself in the market.
Presently, the company has two branding machines and was unable to cope with growing demand for its branded products.
Odola said cheap sugar imports flooding the market was affecting the sale volumes of local sugar companies.
"We consulted widely and resolved that re-branding and re-launching our products is the only way to appeal to our customers and keep us ahead of the competition," said Odola.
Branding
"We will start branding full scale from May," he added.
Odola was speaking to The Standard in his office on Saturday.
He was accompanied by the company's public relations officer, Mr Wilson Okong'o.
Odola said engineers from Sony had inspected the branding equipment.
Sony, which has a cane crushing capacity of 3,000 tonnes a day, acquired 25 tractors and a modern high-powered generator on December 14, last year.
Odola said the miller would open depots in Kisumu, Nakuru and Nairobi.He said the company suffered a Sh437 million loss in post-election chaos adding a quarter of its 2,500 sugar cane nucleus was set ablaze.

"The counterfeit sugar business has been on the increase and has greatly affected output of sugar millers," SonySugar Managing Director Paul Odola said in a press statement. Odola was speaking after a five tone consignment was impounded by the company's security and CID officers based in Migori, Kuria district. The 5,100 kg counterfeit sugar was packed in Sony Sugar and Mumias packets. During the raid, six people were caught with branded packaging materials from the two millers. In total, 93 fake 50 Kgs sacks of sugar bearing Sony Sugar logo and 17 empty bags bearing Mumias Sugar logo were impounded. Five electric sealers and one weighing machine were also found. This was second raid within a month for counterfeit sugar originating from the Kenya- Tanzania border. Early this month, 400 bags of counterfeit sugar packed in fake 50 kgs Sony Sugar bags were nabbed in Kokuro along Migori-Kisii Highway. The matter has been forwarded to the Kenya Revenue Authority for investigation. "Sony Sugar cannot compete with the illegally imported sugar which is suspected to be originating from Tanzania as they don't pay taxes whereas Sony Sugar pays up to 20 per cent in taxes on each tonne of sugar sold in form of VAT, Sugar Development Levy and other levies," Odola said. He added that if the trend is unchecked, counterfeit sugar has the potential of not only crippling the entire sugar industry in Kenya but will also deny the government relevant taxes. We are calling upon the relevant government agencies to take action and be more vigilant to avoid loss of revenue for the government and also prevent a situation whereby citizens may c"onsume sugar that has not been cleared by Kenya Bureau of Standards," the MD said. Unscrupulous traders along the border have been cashing in on the shortage of sugar in the country by illegally importing sugar from Tanzania and taking advantage of the high prices in Kenya. "The profitability and market share of Kenyan sugar companies and others involved in manufacture of fast moving consumer goods have been negatively affected by counterfeits and pirated products," said Odola.

"The 2011 results are an indication of SonySugar's resilience in its operations despite the challenges currently facing the sugar industry globally," said Managing Director Paul Odola.
During the period, the company's crushing capacity grew from 558,054 tonnes to 725,827 tons that resulted to an increase in production of sugar to a total of 74,794 tonnes compared to 51,189 tonnes the previous year. Odola further attributed the improved performance to efficiency arising from heavy investment in the factory and improved cane quality.
