Mr. Bassoul continued, “At our Food Processing Equipment Group we significantly enhanced our position as an industry leader with the acquisitions of Auto-Bake, Maurer-Atmos, Danfotech, Drake, and Armor Inox. The acquisitions of Auto-Bake, Maurer-Atmos, and Armor Inox further expanded our portfolio of leading thermal processing technologies allowing for the proofing, baking, and cooking of a wide variety of food products. The additions of Drake and Danfotech added complementary food preparation equipment to our cooking line further increasing our capabilities to provide a complete integrated solution to our customer base. We have assembled a very strong lineup of globally recognized brands and a portfolio of complementary industry leading technologies. These highly synergistic acquisitions will allow us to provide our customers a uniquely integrated and efficient equipment solution, providing for reduced operating costs and the highest standards of quality. As we complete the integration of these newly acquired brands, we also see significant opportunity to realize operational efficiencies amongst our expanded Food Processing Equipment Group.”Conference Call
