Duravant expands with acquisition in the Netherlands
DOWNERS GROVE -- Duravant LLC Monday said it has acquired Votech GS B.V., a leading manufacturer of bag filling machines, palletizer machines and pallet transport systems headquartered in Reusel, Netherlands.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Votech will join forces with Fischbein International, a Duravant company, to serve its global customer base, the company said.
The combination of Votech's expertise in bag management and palletizing and Fischbein's portfolio of bag sealing and sewing equipment creates a complementary fit between the two companies, Duravant said.
"There is a very complementary relationship between our two organizations," said Olivier Hancotte, vice president and general manager of Fischbein. "We're thrilled to work closely with the Votech team to create a broader product offering for both companies' customers."
Downers Grove-based Duravant is a global engineered equipment and automation solutions provider to the food processing, packaging and material handling sectors.
