Duravant strengthens its position with acquisition of National Presort LP

USA – Automation equipment vendor Duravant has acquired National Presort LP (NPI), a provider of automated sortation solutions that will add to Duravant’s material handling equipment portfolio.

Texas-based NPI manufactures high-speed sortation systems that are modular and configured to customers’ specific application needs.

Their sorting equipment features a sliding shoe and slat design and is engineered to precisely sort flats, poly bags, boxes, irregularly shaped parcels and mixed mail at speeds of up to 24,000 pieces per hour, the firm said.

“We are excited to welcome NPI to Duravant,” Mike Kachmer, the chairman and CEO of Downers Grove, Illinois-based Duravant, said in a release.

“The addition of their unique sortation technology to our material handling portfolio complements our strong position in e-commerce and distribution centers and greatly extends our reach with parcel and courier customers.”

Duravant serves markets in the food processing, packaging, and material handling sectors, and also owns material handling equipment brands including FMH Conveyors, Motion06, Multiscan Technologies, Foodmate, nVenia, Key Technology, QC Conveyors, Marelec Food Technologies, SupportPro, Marlen, Votech, Mespack, WECO, and Wulftec.

Brent Daboub, President of NPI added: “NPI has experienced tremendous growth, and now our partnership with Duravant greatly enhances our ability to deliver even more value-added solutions to our expanding customer base.

“We’re excited to leverage new resources available to us and collaborate with our colleagues at FMH Conveyors and other Duravant operating companies.”

NPI has two manufacturing sites in the US and a nationwide fleet of service technicians. The company’s end-to-end capabilities begin with a consultative approach to designing integrated systems and continue through installation and lifetime aftermarket support.

Meanwhile, in July, Duravant acquired PPM Technologies (“PPM”) from Stonehenge Partners. PPM is a leading manufacturer of high-quality conveying, coating, and thermal equipment headquartered in Newberg, OR that designs, engineers, and manufactures processing solutions for a wide range of end markets including snack foods, confectionary, cereals, nutraceuticals, nuts and seeds, vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood.

PPM greatly enhances Duravant’s portfolio of automation solutions with new products and technologies that are highly complementary to those of Key Technology, a leader in sorting and food handling solutions and a member of the Duravant family of operating companies.

The company serves national and multi-national customers in over 50 countries with leading-edge designs and customized solutions engineered to optimize efficiency and production.

In addition, PPM has two manufacturing sites in the US, a sales office in the UK, direct sales support in Mexico, and provides lifetime support to their global customer base with aftermarket parts and services performed by expert technicians.
