Two industry leaders in the food conveying industry—KOFAB and Meyer Industries—are teaming up to capitalise on their respective strengths and maximise their ability to offer innovative and technologically-advanced solutions to their customers in a new company, Precision Food Innovations (PFI) in Pella, Iowa.

PFI will operate as the food division under the umbrella of Precision Incorporated—a global, employee-owned manufacturer and distributor of conveyor products and solutions founded in 1977, the new company will join the industrial division, Precision, Pulley & Idler, under the parent company Precision Incorporated.

“The combined brand portfolio we are growing at PFI gives us strong exposure to the food handling equipment business, as well as an ability to reach consumers across a wide variety of channels,” said Greg Stavers, senior president of PFI.

“Customers can expect a smooth transition and will still be interacting with many of the same people they have come to know over the years,” Mr Stavers added.

KOFAB and Meyer Industries are long-standing, reputable names in the food processing industry.

The former manufactures a significant share of custom-designed food equipment and specialises in original, USDA-approved stainless steel equipment for bakery, dairy, candy, meat, poultry and pharmaceutical processors.

The latter manufactures a broad range of equipment including vibratory conveyors, bucket elevators, hopper-feeders, bulk box filling, mix-blend systems, hydrostatic steam blanchers, hydrochillers, washers, etc.

As KOFAB and Meyer Industries continue to transition into PFI, rebranding efforts will include new email addresses with the extension and a new logo to identify the launch of the new company.
