Andritz aims to strengthen its capabilities and offerings further in China and the Asia Pacific region through its feed technologies division (FT).
As part of that strategy, the company acquired Shanghai Shende Machinery Co. Ltd., which holds a solid position in the Chinese marketplace as a provider of cost-effective technologies and solutions for the feed industries.
Andritz FT wants to provide affordable quality, complete plant solutions providing value for money to the Chinese/Asia Pacific animal feed, aqua feed, pet food and biomass-pelleting industries, said the company. Towards achieving this, the project management and engineering competences of the Andritz Liyang location will be merged with the competences of Shanghai Shende. The newly formed project engineering/management team will be located in Shanghai.
The project group will design and execute process plant solutions based on Shende and Andritz FT product lines under the Andritz brand. All process technologies will meet the specific requirements of customers.
