Bühler and IMDHER join forces in a joint venture for the feed sector in Mexico
Bühler, a Swiss company dedicated to the production of food/feed processing equipment, signed an alliance with the Mexican equipment manufacturer for feed IMDHER, to create a company that provides solutions that help improve the processes, quality and sustainability of the food/feed markets in the country, mainly in the animal protein sector.
The new company, called IMDHER-Bühler, will offer its customers Bühler's core machines and IMDHER's expertise, to provide solutions that will enable them to improve the capacity and efficiency of their operations.
IMDHER counts with four decades of experience building feed, pet food and aquaculture plants. It´s a family company, whose market share is about 20%. For its part, Bühler is buying a minority shareholding of 49% in the new IMDHER-Bühler, which will be directed by Luis Díaz, CEO of IMDHER
'We believe the increase in meat consumption can be achieved in parallel with a reduction in its environmental impact. Through the most modern and efficient technologies to reduce waste and energy consumption, and at the same time contribute to animal welfare, we help meet the food needs of millions of people in the most sustainable way', said Johannes Wick, executive president of Bühler grains and foods, in a statement. "With IMDHER we have the ideal partner to serve the growing and important Mexican market with more efficient solutions and optimize a broad technological base."
"The joint venture with Bühler represents an opportunity for us to include their technology and solutions to our existing assets and thereby expand our offering to customers in the dynamic and expanding Mexican market," Diaz said in a statement.
