Primodan acquires SPX Flow yellow cheesemaking tech

SPX Flow, through its Danish subsidiary SPX Flow Technology Denmark, has agreed to transfer its yellow cheese activities and technologies, including curd making, pressing and final brining systems, to Primodan. Primodan is a Danish-owned company that designs, manufactures and supplies plants and equipment for the dairy and food processing industry; its acquisition of the yellow cheesemaking technology presents opportunities for the expansion of its current cheesemaking plant business.

“The agreement transfers some excellent technology to Primodan, which is itself a leader in cheese production. New yellow cheese plants are not part of our core growth strategy and the sale of this portion of our business makes sense for both companies and our customers. Our relationship with Primodan has been long and fruitful. This sale marks a new period in our collaboration. This is a good step for our customers in the yellow cheese sector, who we know will be in good hands with Primodan going forward,” said Jan Olsen, Food & Beverage Director at SPX Flow.

The equipment included in the sale includes the CurdMaster, used to produce cheese curd from cheese milk; the OPD PrePress System, for batch draining, pre-pressing and cutting of cheese curd; and the SaniPress system, for final pressing and handling of hard and semi-hard cheese. As part of the agreement, SPX Flow will continue to provide aftermarket service for customers with existing yellow cheese plants until the end of 2021, with Primodan continuing to use other SPX Flow technology, including valves and pumps, in new cheese plants designed and manufactured at their facilities.

“The purchase of the SPX Flow yellow cheesemaking business is an exciting opportunity for us, and one that fits well with our current technology portfolio. We have a long-standing relationship with SPX Flow and are looking forward to this continuing into the future for the benefit of all our customers,” said Simon Servé Jensen, CEO of Primodan.
