Duravant acquires machine manufacturer Multiscan Technologies

Global food processing, packaging and material handling company Duravant has acquired machine manufacturer Multiscan Technologies in a move Duravant says will expand its automated food processing and inspection reach.

Headquartered in Alicante, Spain, Multiscan designs and builds equipment for the sorting and inspection of fruits, vegetables and other agri-food products.

A leader in vision technology for more than 25 years with customers in 35-plus companies, Multiscan manufactures intelligent vision and transport systems for automated sorting and grading of food products and inspection systems using advanced x-ray digital processing and information management software that ensure food safety compliance.

Together with Duravant operating companies Key Technology and WECO, Multiscan extends Duravant’s portfolio across automated food processing and inspection categories with complementary products, technologies and applications.

“Multiscan is excited to join Duravant, and we are especially looking forward to collaborating with Key Technology and WECO,” Simon Van Olmen, Multiscan president, said. “Duravant’s impressive footprint and service infrastructure will enable us to grow faster than ever while continuing to deliver highly innovative solutions with complete lifecycle support to our customers.”

Headquartered in Downers Grove, Illinois, Duravant is an engineered equipment company with manufacturing, sales and service facilities throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

“Multiscan extends our reach into agri-food markets with intelligent inspection solutions that are highly complementary to Key Technology’s and WECO’s offerings,” Mike Kachmer, Duravant president and CEO, said. “Their culture of innovation and customer commitment makes them a wonderful addition to the Duravant family.”
