Middleby buys Packaging Progression to boost foodservice offerings

Pacproinc solutions are extremely complementary to the existing processing technologies of Middleby
Reports confirm that Middleby Corporation, a global leader in the foodservice equipment industry, has recently announced the acquisition of Packaging Progression Inc. (Pacproinc), which is based in Souderton, Pa., and registers around $30 million in annual revenues.
Sources close to the matter informed that Pacproinc is a renowned market leader in automated packaging technologies for customers in the bakery and protein segment. Specifically, their underleaving, stacking, interleaving, and card dispensing systems enable customers to automate production, reduce downtime and production costs, improve presentation and product quality while improving food and employee safety.
According to CEO of Middleby, Tim FitzGerald, Pacproinc has greatly succeeded in developing proprietary and highly engineered equipment that helps automate deli meat, bacon, protein alternative patty, fresh beef patty, and pizza crust food processing lines.
Apparently, the Pacproinc solutions are extremely complementary to the existing processing technologies of Middleby and will allow the company to provide a more complete system to their customers, while helping to extend offerings in novel and fast-growing categories, FitzGerald said.
Recently, in June 2019, Middleby Corporation had expanded its beverage service portfolio by acquiring Ss Brewtech, a global leader in professional beverage equipment and craft brewing. Seemingly, Ss Brewtech was the very first company to unveil professional grade brewing tools aimed at the small-scale craft brewing segment.
If sources are to be believed, the company will function as an independent business unit within Middleby. Ss Brewtech headquarters is in Santa Ana, California USA.
Tim FitzGerald had stated during the Brewtech acquisition that the company has developed high-class technology and a standardized platform that allows operators to install and function equipment with minimal system and training, while offering exclusive beverage control and quality.
For the uninitiated, Middleby Corporation is a worldwide leader in the supply of foodservice equipment. The company manufactures, markets, develops, and services a wide line of equipment used in the commercial food processing, residential kitchen equipment and other industries.
