Key Technology and Visys NV have entered into a merger agreement and said the entity will be at the “forefront of vision inspection technology”.
Visys NV, a provider of chute-fed in-air sorters used by food processors will continue to operate in Hasselt, Belgium, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Key Technology.
The firm provides field-proven sorters used in food processing plants to sort nuts, fruits, vegetables, potato products and seafood.
Jack Ehren, president and CEO of Key Technology, said the merger would create an “unmatched” proposition in the industry.
“Through a single supplier, customers will have access to the highest performing chute-fed and belt-fed sorters available, along with our industry-leading processing systems and unparalleled support to satisfy needs in all steps of the processing line.”
