CHICAGO, Ill. – Provisur Technologies Inc. has acquired all of the stock of AM2C SAS and its sister company, Mecaprecis SAS, a leading global supplier of mechanical separation equipment for the food processing industry. AM2C is strong in poultry markets and possesses strong distribution throughout Europe and the emerging markets.
Coupled with its existing Beehive business, Provisur said it now becomes the clear global market leader in mechanical separation equipment, aftermarket parts and service.
"The AM2C brand is a complementary addition to our separation portfolio, enhancing our product offering while extending our global reach,” said Provisur CEO Mel Cohen. “Both companies share a philosophy around growth through product innovation and customer service which will facilitate the integration process."
By combining the AM2C and Beehive brands, Provisur now has the most versatile offering of rotary technology in the industry, he added.
"We are truly excited to join the Provisur organization. AM2C will now have access to resources that will allow us to continue to innovate while reaching a truly global customer base," said current AM2C President and owner, Olivier Kerdiles, who will continue to be responsible for the AM2C business as well as assuming a leadership position within Provisur's overall separation business.
"Our philosophy at Provisur is to emphasize the importance of our brands. Our intent is to capture the market synergies from this acquisition while preserving AM2C’s identity in the marketplace," Cohen added.
Mecaprecis is a high-tolerance, machined parts manufacturer based in Concarneau, France. Mecaprecis provides numerous functional parts for AM2C's separators and also sells to other customers.
