BIRMINGHAM, Ohio – Bettcher Industries Inc. entered into a distribution agreement with Roenne, Denmark-based Borncut A/S, effective Jan. 1.  Bettcher Industries will be the exclusive distributor of Borncut precision portioning machines throughout North America.

“This is a natural fit for both companies. Borncut possesses the pioneering line of portion cutting machines and has established a strong presence in Europe, and we look forward to expanding the brand’s reach and penetration here in North America,” said Thomas Holm, Bettcher’s president.

The agreement covers sales of equipment and parts, along with service which will be provided by Bettcher technicians.
Borncut single- and dual-lane portion cutters produce precise, fixed-weight portions of fresh meat such as boneless chicken breasts and salmon in high-speed production environments – 4,340 cuts per minute.
Bettcher and Borncut senior leaders agree the distribution agreement is a strong strategic fit for both entities. It combines “Borncut’s innovative vision technology and proven precision-cutting performance with Bettcher’s focus on primary processing operations.”
