Duravant acquires poultry processing equipment manufacturer Foodmate
Duravant, a US-based engineered equipment and automation solutions provider, has closed its previously announced acquisition of Foodmate, a manufacturer of poultry processing equipment, for an undisclosed price.
Foodmate has headquarters in Ball Ground, Georgia, and also in Numansdorp in the Netherlands.
The deal was announced in April 2021 and was closed in late May.
According to Duravant, the acquisition of Foodmate combines two global engineered equipment providers and will thereby increase its ability to cater to customers and partners in 190 plus countries within the food processing sector.
Mike Kachmer – President and CEO of Duravant, commenting on Duravant acquisition of Foodmate, said: “Over the last 15 years, Foodmate has built a sterling reputation in the poultry processing industry by focusing on delivering best-in-class solutions to their customers.
“As we welcome the Foodmate team to the Duravant family of brands, we look forward to growing that legacy through continued customer-centric innovation.”
Foodmate has manufacturing and engineering hubs across Europe, demo and showroom facilities in both the US and the Netherlands. The poultry processing equipment manufacturer also has sales and assembly facilities in the US.
Furthermore, its customers are said to be supported by a local footprint in 55 countries.
Commenting on Duravant acquisition of Foodmate, Scott Hazenbroek – President of Foodmate US, said: “Foodmate is very much aligned with Duravant’s culture and strong commitment to growth, which will enable Foodmate to accelerate the execution of our strategic priorities.
“We look forward to continuing to provide the best equipment, service and support to over 900 installed units serving the largest poultry processing companies globally.”
