Marel to provide full service for Carnitech mixers and grinders

Following Marel’s recent acquisition of the mixing and grinding activities of Carnitech A/S, Marel GB will now provide, in the UK and Ireland, full sales, service and spares for the range of mixers and grinders for the meat, fish and poultry industries.

Marel has re-employed some 35 staff at the former Carnitech factory in Stovring, Denmark to ensure continuity. The factory will re-open as a ‘fully fledged’ Marel product centre specialising in mixing and grinding technology, machines and systems.

Carnitech was formerly owned by the American Industrial Acquisition Corporation (AIAC) – a privately held industrial group who acquired it from Marel in 2010. The return of Carnitech’s range of mixers and grinders to Marel has plugged a gap by adding mixing and grinding to a huge range of forming and portioning machines in the company’s offering of complete processing systems.

The UK boasts a substantial number of these machines in action, so continuity of service for them is vital if processors are to maintain their production. “The acquisition of Carnitech mixers and grinders means that Marel will take on the responsibility for spare parts and a high standard of service for UK processors – many of whom are well known to us – and I can assure them of our 100% commitment to doing just that,” said Graeme Rolinson, general manager of Marel GB.
