Food Sorter Manufacturing Companies Merge
March 26, 2013
Walla Walla, WA — Visys NV, chute-fed in-air sorter manufacturer, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Key Technology, Inc., which produces belt-fed sorters.
Key Technology President and CEO Jack Ehren says: “This partnership with Visys creates a value proposition that is unmatched in the industry. Through a single supplier, customers will have access to the highest performing chute-fed and belt-fed sorters available.”
Visys' digital sorters use lasers and cameras to identify and remove foreign material and defects and its new BioPrint technology enables sorting based on chemical composition. Visys’ chute-fed in-air sorters will augment Key’s product line, which includes belt-fed sorters, complementary conveyors and other processing systems. Key also brings to the merger product handling capabilities, application testing, line integration, installation and start-up training and machine service and repairs.
