The partnership will bring together SPX Flow’s expertise in process technologies like mixing, blending, separation, heat treatment, fermentation, evaporation, spray drying, membranes and homogenization to the partnership, with Flottweg’s 70 years of experience developing and manufacturing separation technology.
“Combining our expertise allows for more collaboration to improve solutions for our shared customers,” said Gerard Lang, SPX Flow's vice president of Nutrition and Health Strategy and Commercial. “Customers benefit from having a 'one-stop-shop' for plant-based processing with double the experts, as both companies continue to innovate in the plant-based sector.”
Together, SPX Flow and Flottweg can also offer customers more research and development opportunities for plant-based drinks, fermented products and ingredients. Combined, the companies have multiple global Innovation and Design Centers, including in France, the United Arab Emirates, Denmark and Germany.
“Both Flottweg and SPX Flow benefit from each other's expertise and know-how,” said Flottweg sales engineer Manfred Kropp. "In this way, we can offer our customers the best possible solution for producing plant-based milk alternatives. We look forward to collaborating with SPX FLOW on joint projects."
