Their nationwide network of factory-trained sanitary process professionals follows 3-A, FDA, and USDA regulations to design any size operation from one piece of equipment to an entire plant, with a proven track record of successful installations.
“Our acquisition of Statco-DSI significantly expands our capacity to partner with our North American customer base in a very meaningful way,” said Mark Anderson, ProMach President and CEO. “Statco-DSI brings ProMach further upstream on the production line into the processing technology side of the business, giving us the ability to help customers from processing to packaging increase their efficiencies, streamline their operations, and continue bringing essential products to the marketplace. Whether it’s greenfield projects, minor upgrades, or major modifications we look forward to bringing even more value to our customers with best-in-class engineering services, stand-alone products, integrated systems, and aftermarket support. We are delighted to welcome Statco-DSI to the ProMach family."
Statco-DSI solutions are utilized across numerous market segments, including milk, ice cream, yogurt, cheese, water, carbonated soft drinks, distilled spirits, wine, and beer, among others. In addition to systems integration and engineering services, Statco-DSI designs and manufactures a comprehensive portfolio of sanitary equipment including BlenZer® blending and mixing systems, Therma-Stat™ extended shelf life (ESL)/aseptic processing systems, high-temperature-short-time (HTST) processing systems, dry hopping systems, ozone injection systems, clean-in-place (CIP) systems, modular skidding systems, and plastic case packing systems. Statco-DSI also provides custom design/build services for complete greenfield facilities, line retrofits, and plant modifications. Additionally, Statco-DSI represents numerous processing and packaging equipment manufacturers and takes responsibility for the installation and support of these systems in the field.
Statco-DSI joins ProMach’s Systems & Integration business line along with existing ProMach product brands Zarpac and ZPI. “Bringing Statco-DSI into ProMach solidifies our solution and services lineup across our food and beverage market segments and lets us help companies ranging from start-ups to market leading multi-national companies grow their bottom line with a trusted partner,” said Bret Ranc, ProMach COO. “It provides tremendous cross-selling opportunities, new market segments, and another strong platform brand for our continued processing technology expansion. They have an excellent reputation in many areas, including ultra-high temperature (UHT) thermal processing systems, that complement our existing retort sterilization solutions available with our Allpax and Stock America product brands. That means we can provide customers even more choice to help them bring shelf stable food and beverage products to the marketplace, backed by ProMach’s existing comprehensive packaging solutions portfolio that spans from filling systems to the end of the packaging line.”
David Statham, CEO of Statco-DSI, along with Eric Perkins, President of Statco-DSI, will join ProMach along with the entire Statco-DSI team of over 185 employees. ProMach will continue to invest in Statco-DSI’s operations across all locations to support their continued growth with new and existing customers across all markets.
“Since Jim Statham founded Statco nearly four decades ago, we’ve made our mark with customers in the processing industry and we are excited to write the next chapter of our story as part of ProMach,” said Mr. Perkins. “Given our shared focus on the customer, ProMach felt like a natural home for us. And with ProMach’s industry leading packaging expertise and geographic reach, along with the vast combined packaging and processing knowledge we each bring to the table, I am confident this will be a win-win for our customers and employees alike.”
“This is a very exciting time in the history of Statco-DSI,” said Mr. Statham. “By joining forces with a respected packaging leader like ProMach, we will be able to accelerate our business even further and bring substantial benefits to our customers. ProMach shares the same vision we do for how to grow and strengthen our relationships in the marketplace and Eric and I are looking forward to continuing this amazing journey that my dad started so long ago.”
