Eric Lesbats, CEO of Synerlink announced the deal, saying it would expand its range of solutions and services in the fresh dairy market and beyond.
“Dairy Pack’s expertise in FFS (form, fill and seal) technology, their fill-seal (FS) machine range and a very strong and deserved reputation make them a natural and complementary partner to Synerlink’s well-known brands like Arcil, Dinieper, Aprium and Dosil,” Lesbats said.
“We believe that the joint technical expertise of our teams will benefit our collective brand and that the Synerlink support teams will ensure the long-term satisfaction of our clients around the world.”
Company name changing
Dairy Pack designs and manufactures FFS and FS machines and provides services to dairy companies from its manufacturing plant in Lardero, near Logroño, Spain.
Synerlink said that Dairy Pack strengthens Synerlink’s ability to support customers through their small and medium filling machines.
Dairy Pack machines operate in more than 20 countries around the world, both for large global dairy customers and for smaller local producers. Synerlink service centers located in France, the US, Brazil, China and Russia will provide after-sale service. Dairy Pack will remain the brand name for the machines from their product line, while the name of the company becomes Synerlink Iberica.
“We welcome the gifts and talents of the team members of Dairy Pack into the Barry-Wehmiller family and look forward to working alongside them in creating a great future together,” said Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller chairman and CEO.
