Key Technology acquires Herbert Solutions

Key Technology — a manufacturer of digital sorting, inspection, conveying and other processing equipment and member of the Duravant family of operating companies — has acquired Herbert Solutions, enhancing its portfolio of potato and vegetable equipment solutions. Herbert Solutions provides a range of sorting, washing and handling solutions to the root crop and fresh produce markets, and is headquartered in the Netherlands.

Herbert’s experience in handling and sorting whole products, coupled with Key’s presence in processed potato and vegetable solutions, will enable Key to offer a broader set of integrated solutions to benefit customers’ product quality and overall yield.

“Both companies have always had a strong focus on customer relationships. Herbert customers will now get access to Key’s strong global footprint and sales network. For service and technical support, they can now rely on Duravant’s global SupportPro organisation,” said Mark Verschuren, Herbert Solutions’ former owner.

Herbert will become a product brand within Key’s overall portfolio of potato and vegetable solutions, with Verschuren undertaking the role of Product Sales Manager for Herbert. Verschuren will continue to lead Herbert’s commercial efforts and the development of new product solutions.
